UWE, is in the process of updating the Training Center here at Uw Explorers. We have completed the Technical Diving section. We have updated prices and number of dives. Don’t miss out on some of the best training and diving you can imagine.
We offer Technical training through PADI/DSAT and TDI. If there is a technical course you want to take and you do not see it on our website be sure to send us and email, so we can send you out some information of the course, and where you can take it. In most cases we bring in guest instructors if we are not able to conduct the course.
[singlepic=102,320,240,watermark,left]Uw Explorers wants to send out our congratulations to Jeremy Chesworth on completing the Advanced Nitrox and Decompression procedures course yesterday! We planned to challenge Jeremy with a dive to 170fsw off 9 mile point.
Monday night had everyone hard at work preparing decompression mixes for the dive, while some prepared the decompression schedule for the dive. Once completed we broke for the evening with the agreement to meet early the next day so we could get everything together and out to the dive site.[singlepic=138,320,240,watermark,right]
Once on site, we preped and rolled into the water….did our bubble checks…and then started our descent. As we dropped through the 50 foot mark we could tell there was a bit of a current. So our intial swim was going to be a but harder then expected but there were no problems as we finally arrived at the scar that leads to the deep drop off! Visiblity was at least 150 feet, and water temps were still good for decompression!!
Overall it was a great dive…interested in becoming a Tec Diver…be sure to check our courses tab right here at the website!!
Saturday 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.
