Re: Looking for divesite and buddy ideas; 16-19 November; noob cold water diver

Not great tides to do Keystone, but if you don't mind driving down to Edmonds you could probably spend plenty of time diving there in the underwater park. Looks like high tide that weekend is around noon-1pm depending on the day. Low tides are at night around 7-8pm. More sea life at night, of course...

Re: Bainbridge island

BI resident here. You looking at doing a boat charter off the Island? Or the shore dives there? For shore dives, you basically have 2 options: Rockaway Beach (Also known by some as Norrander's Reef), and Fort Ward. I haven't dove Fort Ward yet, but from what I've heard, there's not a ton. Rockaway h...

Re: Back From Grand Cayman

Nice photos. I went to Grand Cayman back in 2012. Stayed at Sunset House on the west side and did my Advanced while I was there. The Kittiwake was my first night dive, back when it was upright and freshly sunk. I've been considering going back.

Sund Rock 9/29

Haven't been in the water much all summer, so I figured I was due for a couple tanks this past weekend. Headed out to Sund Rock since I've only been there once before, and managed to get there before the hordes of people. We showed up at 7:30, but when we got out of the water after the first dive, t...

Re: Viz Reports Thread

Sund Rock was pretty nasty Saturday 9/29. 3-5ft until you hit 40fsw, then only up to 10-12ft.

Re: Isla Mujeres Whale Sharks

Great photos. That silhouette shot is incredible! Thanks. Took me all 4 days to get that shot. Either it was cloudy, the sharks were coming from the wrong direction, the sun wasn't exactly behind them, or camera issues. Finally got it on my last round on the last day, and then my camera battery die...

Isla Mujeres Whale Sharks

While everyone here was busy playing with Sixgills, we were in Mexico snorkeling with whale sharks. You aren't allowed to SCUBA with them, but seeing as how they all fed on the surface, it wasn't that big of a deal. In Isla Mujeres, off of Cancun, Whale sharks congregate to feed in huge numbers. The...

Re: Mexico diving/snorkeling?

Thanks for all the suggestions and keep them coming. I seen Cancun has whale shark snorkel trips. Whale sharks are typically off of Isla Mujeres or Isla Holbox. If you want to do a whale shark trip, you are better off heading out to one of those islands and leaving from there. I'm actually leaving ...

My wife has had good experiences at Damask in Seattle. Hers was a whale shark, not an octopus though. Did not have a very good experience at Slave to the Needle.
