I'll take people out to the coast for free btw. They just have to show up and roll with the conditions, which can be a little unpredictable, especially in spring. Donations are accepted though :)

We could do that. The conditions usually start improving out there within the next month or so. We dove Three Arch Rocks last year in late April. I'll take a look at tides. I'd like to take a trip or two down to Newport and Depoe Bay this year too.

If a boat/charter comes together, I'd be into it for sure.

I bet if you paid ORdiver, he'd take you out. ;)



Anytime Dave, money well spent!


We should find some dates where the tides are good and plan a trip. We'd need a fourth diver or a dedicated boat driver.


I am in! If you don't have someone in mind for a 4th I could easily get someone!

I have a solution. I just want to own a boat. :)

Drink water, breathe air. Never get these mixed up.

When I talked to the guy who bought South Beach Scuba in October he was talking about having a six pac up and running in spring. You might want to shake his chain.

I believe this is the official video - about 20 minutes in length. http://watch.opb.org/video/2334919238/

It's fun to see the diving at Oregon Coast!

You know, I have been preaching the beauty of the diving in Oregon for several years. It was sort of gratifying to have someone confirm what I have been saying. I do think most of the best diving is to be had from a boat. So thanks for posting.
