It is just that, long, but I know people that have done it. For us, it was trip from scooters'Ville.

- I got a good squirt in my mouth
- I would imagine that there would be a large amount of involuntary gagging
- I don't know about you but I'm not into swallowing it

I've only done Metridium wall from a boat... Seems like a heck of a surface swim.

I'm good with a drift dive on Agate. I'd like to do Deception pass at some point, but my wife and other usual buddy want none of it.

Not sure how long of a surface swim Metridium is. On the order of high tide at Edmonds trying to get out to the drydock? Or further?

I get back to Port Townsend semi-regularly, and would be happy to do some local diving with you.

My regular buddy lives in Kingston (when he's not overseas), maybe I can hook you up. We've done Norrander's quite a lot. I need to try Agate Pass.

Norranders is good, with a long surface swim, you can get to metridium wall

Redondo is best at night, and it is best to have someone give you a tour, otherwise you may miss the best stuff. The ThThTh crew among others would be happy to show you. ThThTh is a good time, especially if you're carrying a camera.

I have dove Norrander's several times and have enjoyed it -- but it did seem to be being taking over by barnacles last time I was there. Let us know if you go!

Howdy
There's a guy Chuck who dives on the island who does a lot of REEF dives. Cool guy but i dont think he has much of an online presense.

Alternatively, you could invite people here coming from the other side with you sometime. I`m sure there would be some up for the adventure occasionally. I could be! What sites do you hit?

Looking for semi-regular dive buddy on Bainbridge

Postby jmartel » Sun Nov 06, 2016 3:19 pm

Just moved over to Bainbridge about a month and a half ago. Typically I dive with my wife, but she isn't going to be diving much over the winter (both of us dive wet). I'd like to find someone over on this side I can dive with so I don't have to keep crossing back over to Seattle. I'm AOW Nitrox so good in pretty much anything down to ~130ft rec limits as well as poking around in 20ft for an hour looking for little critters. Usually I dive with my camera rig as well.
