My husband & I have been diving with Taz Hamrick and Aquatic Adventures in Culebra for almost 10 years now as we visit every year. Back then my husband was already certified; I was terrified of deep water. But my husband seemed to be having such a great time that I decided to see if I could get control of my fear long enough to enjoy the underwater scene. I did a "discover scuba" with Taz. He was soooooo patient with me. I think I just about broke his fingers with the death grip I kept on his hand during those dives. Needless to say, here we are 10 years later and I'm a certified advanced diver. I owe it all to Taz. If I had a bad experience during those first dives, I probably never would have tried it again. We return to Culebra very year and dive only with Taz. He is the most reliable and friendly dive op on the island and he provides lunch on the boat. Great dives, great fun! We can't wait to return!

My husband and I are looking into leaving our home during the cold months and living in a warmer climate. It would be 6 months every year that we relocated. Culebra seems like a beautiful place. Where would we get information to help us check out employment and also a place to live? This is something we would want to do every year, hopefully returning to the same job.
