Re: Nice article/post about offshore Oregon diving.

I have done a bit of diving out of Crescent City, and a bit less of shore diving out of Brookings, and I thought the article was great. I have had days out at the Point St. George Lighthouse when I could see the bottom from about 30-50 ft above it. And the last time I was over their, a couple of yea...

Re: Oregon Field Guide: Diving the Oregon Coast

You know, I have been preaching the beauty of the diving in Oregon for several years. It was sort of gratifying to have someone confirm what I have been saying. I do think most of the best diving is to be had from a boat. So thanks for posting.

Re: For you cavers...

if you are talking about Al Sarena, I think it might be accessible, because Elk Creek Road is a pretty major, well maintained road (at least as far as gravel roads go ) What I meant by UTD got to it is that if you go to their website and search Hall City cave you can watch video of the exploration. ...

For you cavers...

I was looking around for an old mine (called the Al Sarena mine) when I came across something called the Hall City Cave located near trinity CA. Apparently the cave goes back in and ends in a pool of water which may be deep enough to make it worth trip. here is a link to another forum that talks abo...

Re: wetsuit thickness

I am going to go ahead and necro this because I have been diving a two piece farmer john in south Oregon and Crescent City, CA for several years. First dive is always fine, second dive freezes your butt off. Now I wish I had one of those one piece hooded semi dry suits with the silver inside for one...

Re: Canon Powershot S100 - photos?

IF you are still interested in the pictures that the powershot s1takes, I have several from different dive trips, I am a pretty bad photographer so you can get a look at how it performs in the hands of a total novice. I also have a bit of video from both lake Tahoe and Monterey CA that I took.

Re: New Divers from Oregon

Welcome! I am up for diving as well. I have found Harris beach can be good if you catch it at the right time. It's a marine reserve so there is all kinds of life there. The downside is hauling gear down the trail to the beach (and back up again).

so the update for my trip is that I did not get to dive at Port Orford. Instead I went out on the boat with a friend who is also my instructor. We had pretty rough seas that day due to high winds, but the dive was pretty good in spite of poor surface conditions (although it was a really nice sunny d...

Re: Backplate webbing question

Just an update: I actually ended up getting the Dive Rite basic harness for 25 bucks, it's just a piece of webbing with the grommet already installed. It also came with all of the D-rings and a new buckle. So now I have a spare.

Thanks all.
