My name is Howard Cunningham and I am the editor, photographer, writer and diver here at straitscuba.com. My goal is to provide a quality informational site on diving in the cold waters of the pacific northwest.

I started diving over ten years ago as part of the fisheries program at Peninsula College in Port Angeles and immediately fell in love with the sport. I earned my PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor rating in 2004 at Pro Dive in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I have well over 2,000 dives Alaska, Florida and Washington and I believe that NW cold water diving is the best in the world! We are lucky to live in an area with nutrient rich waters that are abundant in marine life with varying and diverse habitats.

I would like to see more areas like Edmonds Underwater Park that are set aside as marine preserves and dive parks. I am always looking for new dive sites and new dive buddies.

Some of my favorite dive sites are Octopus Hole on Hood Canal, Sekiu Catacomba in Sekiu, Salt Creek County Park just west of Port Angeles, Hudson Point in Port Townsend, and of course the Diamond Knot.

I am usually out diving every Sunday! Come join us! If you are interested in diving or have any suggestions, drop me a line or give me a call at 360-808-2987!
