Hi guys,

How often do you guys dive in a year?
I personally would go 3 to 4 trips a year just to satisfy my dive crave.
So what about you?

Cheers.

I would love to do three or four a year, but unfortunately for me, it's more like one or two. Mind you, the 'dive trip' I did last year was a three month long dive and drive around Australia, taking in many of the best shore dives of the south and west coast. An incredible experience that mixed taking a dip with long days of driving through the arid inland. Highlights were- leafy sea dragons, cage diving with GWS, snorkelling with whalesharks, and videoing a goanna while it was foraging underwater at a mineral springs.

Perhaps the limiting function for me is cost. I am guessing there are some on this forum who would do a Forrest Gump line with having money...

..so then I got a call from him saying we don't have to worry about money no more, and I said "That's good. One less thing."

About one weekend a month for me, averaging 5 dives per weekend. Also one or two full weeks of diving during the major holidays. I am fortunate enough to live within 2 hours driving time from Anilao . . .

I average about 120-150 dives a year. That's a couple almost every weekend (local) and two modest dive vacations a year.

Three months long??? Amazing... I would definitely be the Forest Gump... lol... So apart from Australia, you do not dive elsewhere?
