Re: Club dive! Club dive! Club dive! July 28th, 9 a.m.! - Revised Date!

Thanks for the heads up YellowEye and for bringing some extra tanks. I put together a new PIF Box. Everyone is welcome to it and someone should take it with them when they leave to keep it moving along, and to hopefully eventually merge with the original PIF Box. Please feel free to bring any unused...

Oh, I just remembered, is the PIF box coming? Who has it? I’d like to get that going again and have a bunch of stuff to put in it. Maybe we all bring any unwanted gear and start one anew or add to the existing one if someone is bringing it?

Trying to figure out where the PIF Box is and whether we can get it to the Club Dive. Let’s get some movement going on that box-o-sweetness!

Oooh, always wanted to go. I’ve heard a lot of good things about it. An instructor I met while in the Caymans (which I consider to be the best place in the Caribbean) said that Saba was his favorite, and he had been spending a year each guiding and teaching on different islands throughout the Caribb...

Re: Hood Canal Bridge

Wow, now I'm intrigued about those sharks! Was it one of these, perhaps a juvenile? What a cool infographic! Well, looking at these shapes I’m unsure still. The spiny dogfish actually has one of the less pointy tails out of those pictured. I’m thinking it definitely wasn’t the basking shark! The co...

Re: Hood Canal Bridge

The structure was mostly beds of clam shells and some abandoned crab pots and stuff. I saw two enormous tritonia diomedea which was cool, and two sharks of some kind. The first one I thought was a dogfish but I saw one larger one and it’s tail looked a bit too round to be that of a dogfish. With vis...

Re: Hood Canal Bridge

I did the dive. Lots of great critters but no dungeness big enough to eat.

Slack was also earlier than that NOAA chart, so I had light to moderate current the whole time, but it wasn’t too bad. My best guess is it was off by about a half hour to an hour.

Happy Fourth everyone!

Anyone happen to know anything about the currents around the location pictured here? Specifically I’m wondering about currents here, as it’s close to the mouth of the canal. Pictured is the Hood Canal Bridge for reference. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190704/58cc2eed325d439b6736c658d35f98e8.jp...

Re: Deep diving PADI certification in Seattle?

Not to pile on but NAUI are definitely not the 'GUE people'. As others have said here the instructor matters more than the certifying agency. I also suggest she do her AOW rather than just the deep diving specialty. She'll learn a lot and it's a good step in furthering her dive education.
