Doug Biffard, a Marine Biologist who does volunteer work with Reef Dot Org was up to DiveSafe International this past weekend and conducted the Level 2 and Level 3 surveyors course. The course is a free one, which involves some classroom work, and then if you are a certified scuba diver, there can be one or two dives conducted in conjunction with the training.
Saturday’s training had Doug explaining why the diving in the Pacific Northwest is so diverse, and amazing. Also, during this session we are introduced into the various Fish and Invertebrates that can be found in our local waters.
On day two, we headed out on the boat for a dive at Lone Tree one of our many awesome dive sites, where we encountered many different rock fish, Greenling, Giant Pacific Octopus and even a Shark (Dog Shark).
DiveSafe is going to have Doug back up in late September, or early October for our next Reef Course, so if you are interested be sure to get a hold of DiveSafe to book your seat. What do you have to loose…after all its FREE for the classroom sessions!!
