I confirmed with Tide Tool's creator that my version of the software is indeed incorrect for the next few weeks. A beta version is available to correct it at: http://www.toolworks.com/bilofsky/tidetool/beta.html

Early Daylight Savings Time and Currents/Tide Prediction?

Sooooooooooooo...I just realized that daylight savings time starts this weekend, which is 3 weeks early this year. Congress expanded daylight-saving time in 2005 as part of the energy bill, and it starts this year. There has been some talk that computers, etc won't automatically update the time on S...

casio-ex-z1000 with ewc-80-housing

I know a bunch of you have this camera/housing set-up and really like it. I'm really considering purchasing this set-up after years of standing firm to the belief that I don't like to take UW photos. (don't ask...)

Are you using a strobe? Or just the built-in flash?

Thanks,
Jenn

In my humble opinion, the UW Park is really not a beginning level dive. I know there are plenty of folks who would probably disagree with me though. You can run into pretty good currents there on a big exchange day and if diving at times other than slack. That combined with significant surface swimm...

I have dove Norrander's Reef 3-4 times. It is an easy dive with little/no current--there can be a bit of a current on an ebb tide. I recommend that you do your first dive there on a low tide as the tide is starting to come in for that reason and for another one. The second reason is that there is a ...

I don't like a lot of bulk on my arms, so I went with a Weezle vest. When the water and air temps are extra cold, I use it over my regular undergarments and love it.
