So, there I was out in Tuwanek doing and Underwater Navigators course with a student….so I had to include a trip to my favourite Octopus den. Guess who was home!!  That is right he is back!  I have not been able to find him over the past 2 weeks…and I was there just Wednesday and nothing.[singlepic=118,320,240,watermark,right]

So, if you want to find yourself a nice big Pacific Octopus…be sure to visit the left island in Tuwanek…I am sure you will not be disappointed!!

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.
