A Dive Story
Diving in the South Pacific
Two ships, 5,000+ Army & Navy personal and millions of dollars on an island in the middle of the Pacific you may not know and why we were their. Oh, yes diving was great…
Our very own John Chominsky will be the next speaker at the club meeting on February 21st. John will share his experiences diving in the South Pacific along with the history behind one of the most interesting man made wrecks from World War II.
I started diving late in life over 20+ years ago. My two sons and I became divers together and made our first ocean dive in Barbados and what a great dive it was. After 10 years of training and diving I was invited to become a mate on the Jeanne II out of Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn NY. I work the boat for five years, weekends, special charters, night dives etc.
After that I was offered a part time job working for Scuba Network in NJ and attended school and classes to train as service tech – regulators etc. for another five years.
I liked diving in the South Pacific, New Zealand, Australia, Fiji, and other island. I also enjoy California, La Paz Mexico – that is both sides of Mexico – (The Pacific & Caribbean Islands), Bahamas, Bermuda Florida to Rhode Island … and let’s not forget Canada!
