Angel Fernandez, Key Largo
Scuba Tech, mm 99.1
My biggest challenge was changing from a Miami resident to a Keys resident. I have been in the Keys 3 or 4 years now. The transition was more mentally challenging than anything else; everything else went quite easy actually. It really wasn’t that hard, I made it a mental challenge; thinking it was going to be more of a challenge than it really was.
The people in the Keys were really accepting of me, and my business. I thought opening a dive equipment maintenance shop would be really challenging because there are so many dive shops down here, but even many of the dive shops love me being here and have me maintain their equipment!
My favorite type of dive is wreck diving; it is more challenging, it takes more planning than shallow water reef diving. I enjoy the reefs but wreck diving is more interesting to me. The coolest thing I have seen was a 12’ hammerhead shark that was a little too close for comfort!
Is your dive gear ready? Your life depends on it!
