Advanced Open Water Course

[singlepic id=235 w=320 h=240 mode=watermark float=left]UWE and Suncoast Diving would like to congratulate Kyle H for completing his PADI Advanced Open Water Course.  Kyle has been trying to get his dive numbers up as he is heading to Campbell River to take his Commercial Divers Course, so he signed up for his AOW, and the Night Divers Specialty courses.

Yesterday had us out on the Sechelt Inlet to complete Kyle’s last two dives for his AOW.  We headed up to my all time favorite Wreck Dive on the HMCS CHAUDIERE.  Kyle certainly showed that he is an Advanced Open water diver as he had no difficulties completing this dive in rather challenging conditions.  The wind was up, and there was certainly a lot of wave action, but Kyle was quick to enter the water, and head down the descent line.  We spent 30 some odd minutes exploring the wreck.  [singlepic id=242 w=320 h=240 mode=watermark float=right]Always a fun dive!!

Dive two of the day had us heading back to Pipers Point, so Kyle could do his Underwater Photography dive.  We were planning to get back on the octopus that we found a week earlier in 90 feet of water.  There was certainly all the tell tail signs of an octopus being in the area, but he was not home when we arrived at his den.  But not to be disappointed, about 20 feet away, in 87 – 91 feet we found a beautiful female Wolf Eel sitting in her den.  A rare find in the inlet for me, I was really amazed how [singlepic id=241 w=320 h=240 mode=watermark float=left]beautiful she was.  Kyle, snapped away on the camera recording so nice images of the Eel.  To see more of Kyles Images, be sure to visit his Photo Gallery here on UWE.
