Welcome to Smoky Mountain Divers!

The Thrill Of Diving!




Im Fal__! Im Fal__! Im Flying!!!



It's difficult to explain the Thrill of Scuba Diving or the comfortable, peaceful feeling a diver experiences when in a weightless state underwater. As you glide slowly over the tropical reef watching the ballet of thousands of beautifully colored marine creatures, you're immersed in a spirit of inner space that is nearly overwhelming and beckons you to stay.


The water is warm and clear as you search for that "perfect shot" with your underwater camera. Then you realize you've moved to the edge of the the wall, where the bottom drops thousands of feet into wonderful blue infinity. Your first emotion screams, "I'm Fal__... I'm Fal__... I'm   Flying" through this magnificent liquid universe!


Then sometimes you get so comfortable that, just for a couple of seconds, you no longer feel that you're underwater at all. It's then when you realize, it seems you could reach out and touch the face of God!

Just So You Know



We're Working on a Dive Trip to CUBA!


I've had contacts in Cuba for years, but Americans couldn't legally


go in-country.  Looks like that's about to change. Today, I've


already sent  SMD contact information.  This can be very


interesting.  Oh Yeah Guys, They've also got Caves . . .



Stay Tuned for More Information Soon.
