Re: Titlow Beach (Park) - Tacoma

From my instructor as well as my dive buddy from my current dive at Titlow. From Jim Gunderson: Grab a tide chart. (Plenty on the web - NOAA is a great source) find the peak or valley for the high and low tide. Plan 20 minutes or so prior to the apex for your splash time. The flatter the curve, the ...

Re: Titlow Beach (Park) - Tacoma

Can't say as I do, but my dive instructor seemed to have it nailed when we used Titlow for our current dive during our advanced training. I'll see if I can get the timing from him!

Re: Checkout dives this weekend at Battleground Lake

How deep did you get in Battle Ground Lake? I sure noticed in my drysuit it got really cold below 30ft. Almost thinking we need to do a trash pick up dive there -- So much laying around -- I picked up a fin and some sun glasses but left all the rest of the trash there. I could totally do a dive the...

Re: New to site

Greetings MikePDX1962 and welcome!

I'm a recent migrant to Vancouver, WA myself. I've done all my diving in Puget Sound (I used to live in Tacoma) so maybe we can hookup for some dives? I'm looking for peeps to dive with that may know the diving PDX area!

Looking for a buddy and dive Saturday 3/10

I'll be headed back home to the Portland area on Saturday from my parents place in Mount Vernon. Wondering if anyone is interested in a dive on Saturday. Only really have time for one dive sometime in the morning. I'm basically open to anywhere on my way back south. I just need a buddy and a spot to...

Re: MLK Dive @ Keystone (or somewhere else?)

And I hoped I was going to be in for this but I'm going to have to be out. The drive up from the Portland area and the fact that I would have to day trip it make it infeasible if I want to arrive at either end safely as well as dive in a safe manner without being over tired :(

Re: Club Dive! Club Dive! Club Dive! Saturday, Dec. 9th at Redondo!

I'm a tentative maybe. I have to figure out the logistics of it if I do come. I'm definitely starting to feel a bit dry and it's only been a couple of weeks since my last dive and then my move to Vancouver!!!

Diving around Portland / Vancouver?

So, I'm moving down to the Portland / Vancouver area.

Wondering if anyone has pointers on diving options / clubs down that way. I still hope to make it out to some dives here in the sound but ThThTh isn't going to be happening for me anymore after I move at the end of the month :crybaby:

Given I've not heard anyone else chiming in on the Titlow dive for folks not feeling up to DIW I'm going to have to call that off. Guess that meeting at church this evening I was trying to avoid gets me after all ;)
