July 4th and 5th Garibaldi area

Post by no excuses » Thu Jun 18, 2009 12:55 pm

Going to be camping and boat diving in the garibaldi/Netarts area on the 4th and 5th. If the ocean cooperates will go out and play there, if not will dive in the bays, throw out the crab pots and spearfishing and clam diving. I will be camping at the old mill marina in Garibaldi, can launch boat from there or move to different location for dives. Let me know if youre interested in coming out to dive :boucegreen: :breakdance:

Hey no excuses :).

I think I would be interested in some dives on Friday and possibly Saturday. I'm not a spearfisher, but it would be nice to get back in the water. I've been landlocked for the past few weeks :P. What time were you thinking about on Friday? I have work in the morning, but I was thinking maybe I could kick off around lunch and head over to Newport. Its about an hour drive from here, not sure if that would work with the tides and your schedule. I will send you a PM with my contact information. Drop me a call or email and we can discuss details :).

Hey Aaron was great to meet and dive with you on Friday, sorry we only got one dive in with having to get up to Garibaldi to check in at our camp. We ended up only being about 15min late lol. Did you get youre computer figured out ? It was great seeing all those nudibranchs on the tip of the third finger, man they were all over the place. Ended up going down to Cape Lookout and had some awsome dives, viz was not that great about 5' but just to get back in the ocean for some ocean diving :breakdance: . The colors and life was just great , and will def. be heading back that way. Ended up putting over 90 miles on the boat this weekend running around, it was great.

Stan,

Glad you had a nice weekend, it was nice meeting you as well. Regarding the computer, it turned out that we had put in the wrong type of 1/2 AA battery. After some fiddling at the shop we realized the mistake and swapped in the correct one. The computer fired right up and worked fine the rest of the weekend :). I guess it's not quite time for me to switch to a wrist mount :P.

Sounds like some decent dives up north. I ended up doing a drift dive on the North Santiam river on Sunday below the Detroit dam. It was a lot of fun and an interesting change of pace. There was some really cool underwater rock structure and cliffs and some trout, catfish, sculpins, and crawdads. It was a great day to be at the river, nice temperatures and blue skies. Plus, now I know another place to dive within an hour of my house, so it should be handy for day trips.
