Carol Cox

I'm retired and live in Florida. I learned to dive in 1991 when I was stationed on Guam. I started underwater photography a year later with a Sea & Sea Motormarine II. I finally upgraded to digital in 2007 and love it!

I work with the Mexico Beach Artificial Reef Association in the Florida panhandle as a research diver, photographer, treasurer, and secretary. The all-volunteer organization has deployed over 150 artificial reefs near Mexico Beach, FL. The reefs greatly improve fish habitat, providing recreational opportunities for divers and fishermen. I am currently working on a project to photograph all the different varieties of marine life that inhabit our artificial reefs.

I am also working with REEF.org to develop seminars on fish identification in the northern Gulf of Mexico. Check REEF.org for free online seminars you can take when you aren't blowing bubbles.

I dive in the Gulf of Mexico throughout the summer, often monitoring the artificial reefs. If there are other divers in the area that would like to get involved, I would love to hear from you!

What I look for in a Dive Operator:
Adventure. Freedom. My husband and I like to follow our own profile and escape from the crowd. I like to take my time so my subject gets used to me.
