Tec Training in Sechelt Inlet

[singlepic=101,320,240,watermark,left]Jeremy completed dive two of is his Advanced Nitrox and Decompressions Procedures course. We made our way to the sail boat at Tuwanek point as the start point for the dive.

The dive plan was to use 34% Nitrox in the doubles as our back gas, and then do a NOTOX gas switch to the second gas we hand in our stage bottles. That mix as 50% Nitrox, so our planned change at 50fsw, would allow us to stay there as long as the gas lasted, without any concerns for the no decompression limit.

The first level of our dive as around 97 fsw for 30 minutes…then a slow ascent to the 50 fsw level in order to make our gas switch. Once at the level we continued with our swim, and at approximately the 50 minute point in the dive Jeremy popped a lift bag for our ascent to the surface. At this point we did some share air[singlepic=98,320,240,watermark,right] drills, and gas shut down drills for practice. Overall Jeremy did an amazing job!!

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.
