Fun Facts about Sund Rock: The MCA status of Sund Rock was conceived and brought about by two groups, the Olympia Kelp Krawlers and the Hood Canal Aquanuts. The proposal for the Sund Rock MCA (marine conservation area) was presented to the WDFW Commission along with Octopus Hole and Flag Pole Rock(f...

Re: Sund Rock changes

Agreed, the public access is not appropriate for open water training. At one point, a ban on open water classes was being considered at the pay access, due to damage caused to the environment in a Marine Conservation Area . Divers in open water training should not be expected to have the buoyancy sk...

Re: Sund Rock changes

The DNR owned public access is still available. It is 2.4 miles from Hoodpsort with plenty of parking. The trail is a bit of a hike to a very nice beach and a swim to the south end of the wall. The south end is not dove as much due to its distance from the pay site. The south end is where the cloud ...

I've heard of them, but never seen any. MZ Middle of fish pen wall, excellent chance to see a couple. Abou...

Doing a regulator pre-breathe is also part of OW class and if its more than 2 breaths you will rapidly run OOA if the valve is off. Many people don't breath on the reg long enough thinking they are "wasting air"

Re: Diving Concepts replacement gloves

I also use the Diving Concepts ring system, and I get the orange gloves, unlined, at Seattle Marine for about $4 per pair, and buy the green woolie glove liners at a local Army/Navy surplus store for about $4 per pair. I find getting the unlined gloves with separate liners to be preferable as it's ...

Yes, there is an event, and you can track it here.

Fortunately, there are still depths that are ok.

Re: Tried Kayak diving? Got any tips?

1 beach them whenever possible
2 tie them off to a secure structure on the bottom, (or the surface) treat the dive as an unsupported boat dive
3 anchor like you would any boat, we preferred danforth style and always set by hand, same dive as number 2
4 towing is awful

Jerry, That is really cool!! I have seen video of fish elsewhere creating a funky nesting pattern in the sand like that.

Identify Patterns in Gravel ?

This pattern was photographed on Hood Canal. It was taken at a minus 3.3 tide. The pattern is about 4 feet in diameter. There are over 25 of them that continue on to deeper water.
This beach is private and people are definitely not the source.
Any ideas ?

Thanks,

Re: What defines a "Stroke" diver?

The term started back in the days of when the "Doing It Right" (DIR) principles were founded by the ever colorful George Irvine.. He was a very pompous and arrogant (although very capable and skilled) diver at the time that used to do cutting edge dives and exploration in the Cave systems...
