Reef Dot Org Survey Dives

UWE was out for another weekend conducting Reef Dot Org survey dives.  Mikey T and I were over on Quadra Island diving at Rebecca Spit, Specifically to do this months surveys.  We conducted the first dive on the inside of the spit at the harbour near to the boat launch.  The visibility  was easily 3 feet in spots, and then others 0 and 0.  But its all good…take your time, and you will be surprised what you can see…and how great your camera shots will be, even though there is a ton of stuff in the water.

Dive two was on the outside of the spit, and visibility was a little better, and the temperatures were maybe 5 degrees warmer.  We were on a rocky reef, right down where the kelp and sand met up…we were treated in 100’s of tube snouts schooling, with a couple of Red Irish Lords being present and even a SailFin Sculpin…overall it was a great great dive!

What makes the dive even more fun is the fact that you are in only 20 feet of water, and you can make it last forever….if you are good on air.   So, if you are interested in taking a “FREE” Reef course, be sure to contact UWE and we will hook you up on one!
