UWE and Ocean Quest are very excited to announce we have three new Advanced Open Water divers. Lenka, Brian and Holland joined us to complete their AOW. Our class started on the Monday night where we went to work on some classroom presentations covering the importance of proper fin kicks, awareness breathing gas management as well as buoyancy.
We then proceeded in the the pool at UBC, where we took the classroom information and put it to practice in the water, where we took the time to video tape everyone’s swimming and buoyancy. This is such a valuable way to learn proper diving, as the student actually gets to see a video debrief of their trip, movements and hand signals as they use them. We have been receiving very positive feed back with this method of training.
The weekend had the group out conducting the PPB, Deep, Navigation, Night and Wreck dives at the various locations around the Vancouver area. Conditions where amazing with at least 80 foot visibility and the students had an amazing time.
