Re: Neah Bay water temps.

My guess is that since you were relatively shallow that accounted for the warmer temps. 10 degrees colder than what you experienced is not uncommon. Two great dives!

Welcome! During the week I can get free to dive, and hopefully mid-November I'll be back in the water!

Very nice!

Perhaps more than you're "signing up for" but this format would be fabulous as a "guide" to local dive sites and beyond.

Re: Monterey, CA weekend

Do I understand your post correctly that you went out on a charter, AND you specifically hired a guide to come along on the dive?

Sometimes both are provided, just wanted to check.

Re: Octopus Hole?

Very often visibility in the Hood Canal is crap above 30-40 fsw. It often opens up quite nicely below that. The rare days when it is crystal clear in the top 30' are wonderful - because so much life is in that top 30-40'. So... Octopus Hole. Great dive. But if I remember correctly the wall starts at...

Looking For A Back-Up Suit

Yeah... I really need one. As much as I dive (or at least want to), and the fact that any repair beyond seals seems to be 6-8 weeks, it makes sense to invest in a back up suit. So, I don't want to spend 2 to 3 grand for a back up suit - for a primary it makes sense, but in my budget not in a back up...

Drysuit Rental

Hello NW DiveClub HiveMind! My suit is due for some unexpected warranty work, which means 6 to 8 weeks gone. :axe: I have a major cold water trip coming up in 15 days, so I am looking to possibly rent a suit. I know HoodsportnDive rents them, but it is pretty steep for a week rental. So - Who do you...

Somebody died wading in 2-3 feet of water at sunrise maybe 15 years ago. Super sad incident. Buddy couldn't help him.

So good to learn from those mistakes. It sometimes is not easy getting up!
