Re: Any sage wisdom for a weekend in Victoria?

The Breakwater was amazing. A bit of a hike to get where we dropped in but viz was amazing and the sea was alive! Can't wait to go again next month and we're including Race Rocks next time.

"I'm not sure that anybody is running open water Discover Scuba opportunities around here..." Actually CaptnJack included a link in the first response to Ogden Point Dive Center in Victoria and they offer one. Pool or salt water option. Since they're right off the breakwater we could explo...

Re: Any sage wisdom for a weekend in Victoria?

Again, thanks. All suggestions are welcome. I really enjoyed the trip report, Lynne. The shop recommendations are welcome as one in our party desires a Discover Scuba type experience to see if she likes the scuba thing.
Sea ya!

Any sage wisdom for a weekend in Victoria?

Greetings, We are just going up for a few days at the end of June, 2013 and I've not been diving up there. Can anyone recommend a "don't miss this" site or a dive shop that you liked? If you've been up recently maybe a condition report. I'm not counting on very good viz but maybe I'll get ...

I haven't been to Keystone. I'm looking forward to getting my gills wet. I'll leave after work in the early AM and this should work nicely for me on a Sunday.

Returned To The Land of the GPO

Northern California is done with me for a while. Just moved back after three years away. I'm looking forward to resuming my relationships and visiting the usual dive spots. I've temporarily moved to Des Moines so I'll be checking out Bandito to see if I can get some mid-week action going.

Sea ya!

Re: Diver Death at Redondo

That was a tragedy and an example of human caring and capability at the same time. To all that helped I extend my best regards and admiration for a job well done. To the family and friends of the lost diver, my sincere condolences on your loss.

Re: Edmonds Oil Dock to be removed soon.

If I can chime in from exile I'd just like to add my concern and regret that this action is being put forward without consideration for the small yet enthusiastic group of rec divers that enjoy this site. I am concerned with the impact to the marine environment that always struck me as vibrant and h...

I saw a little of the show. It was geared to the "sport" of fishing under the heading "big game fish". I would imagine it might take some skill to land one that size. I don't have as much problem with trophy fishing as I do with some other atrocities we've seen lately. The harves...
