Uwe and Suncoast Diving had a busy week out on the inlet this past week. Wednesday had us out at Tuwanek for a SDI Drysuit Course with Christine, she had not been diving in cold water for some time, but she is very interested in seeing some of the treasures that are here on the coast….so off we went to do the course! The visibility was short as it is this time of year, the water cool…but certainly a 30 minute dive is not all that difficult. Christine was a natural in the water, and she did an excellent job on the course.
Friday had us up to the HMCS CHAUDIERE and then Pipers Point for a charter. The dive on the Chaudiere was as always excellent. The visibility remains pretty short in the first 30 feet or so, but under that it is open to about 30 foot. Byron and his buddy followed Bruno and I for a little while then went on their own tour. I was inside the wreck doing some filming when I was abl to obtain this awesome shot of a diver passing over one of the cut outs just as I settle the camera in the same position. It could not have been any better even if we planned it!!
The second dive of the day had us down to Pipers Point, where we did a quick 30 minute plunge while the other group of divers were out doing their dive. We were feverishly looking for the Wolfe Eel that was sighted there a couple of days prior to that day…though we were unsuccessful, we did get on a nice sight of a Ling Cod protecting her egg mass. That is the video footage that we have add to this post for everyone to see!!
Looks like UWE is going to be taking a weeks break on diving, in order to catch up on all of our videos, and to get caught up on our dive stories. If you are wanting to get out in the water….drop us an email…and lets get something arranged!!
