9 mile Tec Dive

[singlepic=137,320,240,watermark,right]Uwe and Suncoast Diving was up to 9 mile point doing another Tec dive.  Neil and Mike were up from Vancouver to do another of their Technical dives.  Though we had a later start then normal overall it was well worth the wait.

Upon arriving at 9 mile we could quickly tell how good the visibility was going to be.  Tide was high, but in 30 feet of water we could clear see the bottom while we were still sitting in the boat.  Due to the cold surface temperatures we decided to cut back the lenght of the bottom time so we would not have to pay for it back at 20 feet, in the middle of the cold surface layer.  Sam was the dive leader for todays dive, and she did a wonderful job getting the group to the bottom and headed down the crack to the deep wall.  Once [singlepic=135,320,240,watermark,left]down, we settled into a nice easy swim so we could enjoy the sites, the topography at 9 mile is a amazing.  The wall is covered with tube worms, sea cucumbers and other marine life.

Overall the dive was good, good visibility!!  Uwe and Suncoast Diving is going to be up the inlet on Saturday to do a wreck course and Drysuit course.  If your interested be sure to stop by the shop and sign up!!
