I came up and we got in one dive at Les Davis. Vis wasn't so hot (6-10' maybe), but it was warm and dry topside. Didn't see anything super unusual, but Eddie A had a close run-in with an attack clam. Good time regardless.

That’s a bummer...next weekend is no good for me, but I’m sure we can put a Dive together sometime soon.

Well, it looks like it’ll be Les Davis on Sunday meet at 08:30 and hopefully be able to get in 2 dives. StrangDoc and Scuba Swanie, keep us updated. Jondiver we’ll see you when you get there.

Sunnyside is alright, although you can see most of the site in about an 1/2hr, going down the pipeline, then over to the boats doesn't take very long at all. The boats though there is supposedly a GPO under one of the boats (its been a while since I have been there). Parking also costs $5 cash, there is a bit of a hill to walk down to the water, it isn't too difficult as it is fully paved though. I am not against going there (I haven't been in a while).

Les Davis is I think is a lot better for two dives as there is a lot to see and going down twice isn't as big of a deal. I might only be good for one dive though have to see a little closer.

I'm not committing to be there until I find out my schedule for Rescue Diver. But if it works out, Ill be there for both dives.

There is a lot more to see at Les Davis and due to crappy weather scheduled for Saturday there shouldn't be an abundance of divers there. Too many divers can stir up a lot of silt and make vis really bad. Titlow is a nice dive as well and there is a easy 4' exchange saturday morning. But for beginning divers Les Davis is the best choice.

I've not done either of these myself, but definitely open to seeing something new, so either works for me! I may just come up for the second dive and make a day of it with my girlfriend in Seattle, but if I'm feeling ambitious I can be there by 8:30. I'll keep checking this thread for updates.

Alright everyone, it looks like we might end up with a decent group diving this Sunday. I’m thinking Les Davis or Sunnyside? I’ve never dove either so which one do you all like to dive? I’m thinking 2 dives, meetup at 08:30 try to splash by 09:00 for Dive 1 and maybe splash around 10:30 for Dive 2; hopefully that’ll give jondiver time to join us for at least one dive

So weigh in here and we’ll hit the site with the most votes.

I'm game for Sunday provided it isn't incredibly far north or before 8:00 (I'd be coming from Portland). I'm also a newer diver, still in a wetsuit for the time being. Been diving very casually for about 3 years but only recently getting excited about diving in the PNW.

I'll keep checking this thread; let me know what you guys end up doing and I'd love to tag along if possible.

Hey Steve, thanks for the standing offer to dive any weekend as I imagine most of my diving will be done on the weekends.

As for the 28th, where are you planning to dive on Sunday? I don’t mind a a limited dive for the other buddy to get acquainted with heir dry suit. Maybe if Strangedoc is up for it we can have a couple of buddy pairs in on this one?

Not sure for the 28th just yet. I will let you know when we get closer. Hopefully, he will have his drysuit down by then.We are diving this sunday (21st) but not sure the location. Likely someplace in the south sound. I will post something in the Dive Planning forum when I have more details. I uysually post something by Friday of the dives I am doing over the weekend so anyone who wants to join in the fun, can.


Oh ok, I got a little confused there. I won’t be able to get away this Sunday, but I’ll check back with you next week for plans for the 28th

Thanks, I’ll follow up with you when we get closer and see what we can put together.

Unfortunately Thursday’s are a no go for me; between violin lessons and gymnastics practice with my oldest daughter I’m booked solid every Thursday

Anybody Diving on Sunday (1/28)?

Postby Eddie A. » Sun Jan 14, 2018 10:17 pm

Is anybody planning any dives for Sunday, January 28th?

I’m a baby diver (10 dives) and am looking to join anybody who wants a buddy or doesn’t mind a third wheel. I dive wet and I do t have AOW or Nitrox cert yet, but I’ve got a decent RMV and I’m not picky

I live in Olympia and don't mind driving to a good dive site.
