Hey Divers I just moved to RI. Looking forward to diving RI & reasonable distances to CT & MA. I haven't checked out Giant Stride or the shop in Jamestown yet. I'm spoiled been doing lots of boat dives in So Cal before this move.

Shout out to Afterdark & Porgyhunter. We spoke about 4 years ago when I was visiting. I have my gear now.

I created a Facebook group RI Diver's Exchange patterned after a group in So Cal. The page is for divers selling gear or posting scuba related stuff. It's a useful tool to reach local divers and not hassle with PayPal or shipping, unless you want to. It worked for me & others in So Cal. I think I set it up to be open, i.e. anyone can join. I realize we are not as vast a group as CA, but I know other divers are out there.

If you're in need of a dive buddy for open water this July, shoot me a message. I haven't dove around RI much and am trying to get more acclimated before I finish my divemaster class, so I'd like to get out into the water as much as possible.

Giant Stride runs some shore dives with their divemasters and wreck dives. Check out the calendar page on their website for those.

Right on Porgy. I'm diving dry now so late fall shouldn't be an issue.

I am diver from MA who has been doing all his diving in the warm water of Florida, but I just got my son certified and would like to keep him diving. I hear that there are some dive sites in RI that aren't bitter cold like the MA sites I've tried (temps in the mid-60's?), and I am looking for some divers with knowledge of the area that could show us the ropes for diving RI. Also, does anyone have any info on boat charters out to Block Island? I hear that vis there can be pretty good this time of year.
