SDI Deep Training

[singlepic=29,320,240,watermark,left]A big congratulations to Jeremy, he completed is SDI Deep course today, and lucked out but doing his 130 foot dive on the HMCS Chaudiere. Visibility was easily 50 – 70 feet. We did our skills down deep, and then slowly ascended and was able to conduct a couple of swim throughs.

Dive 2 was done at 9 mile point. We were diving on EANx 34, so we had tons of bottom time. Though the best part of the dive was at the 45 – 55 foot level where we happened on to an octopus guarding her eggs in her den. What a beautiful sight!!

Interested in seeing what we see…be sure to stop by Suncoast Diving and sign up for a charter or learn to dive class!!

Weekend Training

Another busy weekend, had me out doing an Openwater course from SDI. Julie is working to complete here openwater course and is doing an amazing job. Friday we were able to complete Dive 1 and 2, and Saturday we were hoping to complete 3 and 4.

We had some ear and sinus problems so our training was cut a little short, and we were not able to complete the training. But Julie’s safety is far more important then the training. Things should be completed in the next week or so.

Open Water Diver Training: SDI

Cloud SpSaturday had me finishing up some open water diver training. We met at the dive shop for around 9, and got the zodiac ready, did our briefings and out we headed from Porpoise Bay Marine in Sechelt. Our boat trip was around 15 minutes as we just headed to Tuwanek Point.

This little anchorage is an excellent spot for Open Water training, as there is a beautiful sandy flat area in some 25 – 30 feet of water. The few skills we had left to complete went off without a hitch, so we were free to head out on a southerly heading and hop on the wall for a nice little wall dive!

Both students did a great job and were successful in completing their Open Water training!! Well done….be sure to stop by Suncoast Diving and see what is the schedule for up coming training.
