Back From Grand Cayman

I've been blessed with several fantastic trips this year. The one I have just returned from was on the East side of Grand Cayman Island. This is usually the more difficult weather side of the island which means very few divers compared to the much more protected west side. Only two dive companies he...

Who wants to upgrade from a Perdix AI

Let me help you by taking that old out dated poor computer off your hands( joke) I want to get one for a diver I know that lives on a tight budget. She is a nurse in a surgery clinic. However the dive gear needed can drain even a decent income at times. Since I dive with the Perdix I cannot bring my...

Returned from Red Sea Diving near Sharm el sheik

Hello fellow divers. I've returned after diving around the red sea for a couple weeks. 7 of the days was aboard the "King Snefro Love" live aboard. The King Snefro team is a very well run operation that does not miss a beat. I would dive with them again and not even bother to shop around. ...

Small tide change better visibility ???

I have noticed this in the past. However I'm not sure if it's just coincidence. For the most part tides seem to change plus or minus 8-10 feet in the sound. At least thats what I see looking at the tables. However I have seen tide changes as small as only a foot or even 2-3 feet. In the odd situatio...

Re: Viz Reports Thread

Edmonds Saturday was the best I've ever seen it, by probably double the distance. Hard to measure when it's that far, but 50 foot would not be an exaggeration. I would conservatively say 45-60 foot!

Anyone diving Alki tomorrow afternoon. Had planned two dives tomorrow first in at noon. Possibly earlier. My dive buddy over there hurt his leg running today. He is out. I’ll be over to the Seattle area for work so I wanted to dive. Open to other locations. I can be there between 11:00 and 12:00 Sho...

Re: Switched over to drysuit finally!

Great reply Norris, Thanks for the idea of the shoelace, that is the likely path for me. Interesting how little space is needed to transfer the air between the glove ands suit.

Re: Switched over to drysuit finally!

Thanks so much guys, this is exactly what makes this site so great for me to be part of. I’m paranoid about trusting my gloves not to leak and getting the water into the suit. However time will tell how my confidence unfolds. The pull out the rope and put glove back on if it leaked was exactly what ...

Switched over to drysuit finally!

Well guys, I have finally made the switch to the drysuit world. 30 years in a wetsuit mostly in South Africa. Now living here the dry suit bug got me after a year of diving the sound with my 7mm suit. So I bought a Bare HDC tech dry suit. I had it built for me which took a while, like 7 weeks. Boots...

Most of us seem to be driven to saltwater. Myself included and for obvious reasons. There are some good lake dives especially in the fall. Thanks for the report.
