Diving in Sechelt

[singlepic id=251 w=320 h=240 mode=watermark float=left]UWE and Red Hat Divers have released the Diving in Sechelt DVD.  This movie is featuring four of the many great dive sites found here on the Sunshine Coast.  The video was filmed over the last 6 months, with editing and sound track being completed in the last couple of weeks.

We have the DVD for sale at Suncoast Diving, as well there are internet sales which can be found here at UWE, Red Hat Divers, as well as Sunshine Coast Dive Club.  The cost of the video is $10.00, and $3.00 for shipping and handling.  We hope you enjoy the movie.

Pipers Point

Uwe and Red Hat Divers were out at Pipers Point working on obtaining underwater footage for a project they are working on.  The dive overall was excellent.  Visibility was good, and the marine life though smaller still amazing.  We were treated with some beautiful Chimney Sponges, Feather Stars and many other excellent marine life encounters.

As our group made our way up to the safety stop, Bruno spied some Buffalo Sculpins resting on a rock, right in 20 feet of water.  These little guys were just sitting there and appeared to be very uninterested in the three huge divers hovering over top their positions.

Interested in doing some diving….be sure to stop by Suncoast Diving and see what is available.

Advanced Nitrox

Uwe would like to congratulate Bruno P for his successful completion of the Advanced Nitrox course. Bruno has been extremely active diving with UWE and SCDC, as well he has been working towards his Advanced Nitrox and Decompression Procedures certification.

It was late in the afternoon, and we were gearing up for what was to be an extremely successful dive on Pipers Point. Visibility has been a little short but we sure lucked out. There is some large pieces of plankton in the water, but for the most part visibility was easily 50 – 60 feet. The dive was great…we saw plenty of marine life, though not large stuff, but there was some Buffalo Sculpin and some nudi’s.

Be sure to check back, as the video of some of the marine life we saw will be posted in the next day or two. Once again well done to Bruno P. Interested in taking some dive courses? Stop by the Courses Page right here at UWE, and see what we have to offer!
