Young Caz scuba diver earns 'master diver' certificate

"The boys aren't as crazy about it as the girls are," Sue said.

Sue has been very impressed by her daughter's love of the water and her natural talent.

"She's really taken to it," said Sue. "She's like a fish."

Sue is happy to dive with her daughter, and said she is not afraid to be her diving buddy by any means.

"I trust her," Sue said. "She tends to stick by and I can see her constantly look at me and making sure she's okay."

When Mee Rae received her master certification in July, NAS didn't have cards for her age range; they had to make a special junior master diver card just for her.

Mee Rae and her family have dived in the Caribbean, Skaneateles Lake, Alexandria Bay, Dutch Springs and Cazenovia Lake.

While there are risks involved, Sue said, she knows that are children will dive safely and carefully.

"I have tremendous faith in both my kids," she said.
