UWE and Ocean Quest Dive Centre, are excited to announce we have a new PADI Night Diver.  Mariusz, came to Ocean Quest as an Open Water diver and has been working hard at his training.  He has completed the PADI Advanced Open Water Course, and went directly into the PADI Night Diver course.

He has been working very hard, and expressed how much he loves Night Diving!  One his first night dive on the PADI Night Diver course was done in conjunction with his Advanced Open Water training.  The visibility was not to bad, and Mariusz indicated that he had problems with bnuoyancy at night as there is certainly limited distance visibility.

Mariusz’s second dive was problematic at best.  He had problems with buoyancy control, and then with the attempt to remain at depth he also breathed quickly through his tank. Though not a danger as we simply took him to the surface, things certainly could have gone better.  During the depbrief we discovered the various problems that Mariusz encountered and we suggested ways to improve for his graduation dive.

Last night, we headed back out to Whytecliff Park, and it was a little later in the evening, the water calm and tide high.  Visibility was spectacular!  As we progressed the various skills on Dive 3, Mariusz did an excellent job!  The dive was spectacular!!

Well Done to you Mariusz for successfully completing your PADI Night Diver Course.  Mariusz has signed up for the Enriched Air, Rec Sidemount and PADI Deep course.  Woo Hoo….more training!!!


New Night Divers

[singlepic id=236 w=320 h=240 mode=watermark float=left]UWE and Suncoast Diving wants to congratulate Carl S for his successful completion of the PADI Night Diver Specialty and his Peak Performance Buoyancy courses.

Monday and Tuesday of this week has seen a flurry of diving.  Carl, signed up for the Night Divers course, but while here decided he had interest in the Peak Performance Buoyancy course, so we set that up and ran both courses concerrently.  Mondays dives had us out at Tuwanek.  Our first dive of the day had us working on the PPB course.  We did weight checks, and then it was under water we headed.  We practiced hovering, not only on our stomaches facing the ocean bottom, but head down, feet up…then head up feet down.  Carl was equal to the task for all skills that were covered.

On dive two, we headed out for our first night dive for Kyle, and second one for Carl.  The dive went off with out a hitch, and both students did and excellent job in what was a reduced visibility night dive.

On day two, we decided we would head out to Pipers Point for our night dive!  Yes you got it….Octopus Encounter!!  Our night dive was amazing!  We had an encounter at about 95 feet, and the little guy was hidden way back in a small crack.

Great diving and great training!  Want to get out and night dive….why not take the PADI or SDI Night Diver Specialty, interested just send me an email…and lets get out diving!!
