Dive Log - 22 & 23 Oct 2011

dscf2375On Saturday 22 Oct we had two PADI Discover Scuba Diving sessions at the Savoy hotel. Some were very nervous to go underwater but as they got used to the feeling of breathing underwater it was more difficult to get them out the water. All 4 of them also decided to do an ocean dive on Sunday morning.

Dive Log - Sunday 18 September 2011

Sunday morning at 8am saw a full launch, with the boat filled to capacity. The ocean was pretty much flat. Due to wave like sandbanks that formed over the weekend, getting the boat into deep enough water was more of an effort than actually making it past the breakers. The surf in the bay was really small. We were going to do a shallow dive on Discovery Channel, but due to the viz that did not look great close to shore due to algae, we ventured a little further to Jagged Edge to find a shallow piece of reef with better viz. On the open sea, the SW wind blew at 19 kts which resulted in a similar surface current to Friday night, but just in the opposite direction. Neville took the line and the rest of us did a near negative entry to elimanate drift.
