Time to get in the lake!

Posted by on in Uncategorized
At last... the lake is safe for us to dive in. HURRAY! Last month we enjoyed lots of pool sessions for members to tune up for the upcoming season as well as two adventures. A trip the Bonne Terre Mines in Missourie, and a second adventure was a day trip paddling Kayaks and Canoes through the Minesing swamp. If you're interested in following our adventures, visit our adventure club page, where you will see recent scuba diving and nature trips throughout Simcoe County and North America! This months tips and guide is on how to maintain your Regulators. First, after diving, the regulator must be cleaned, inspected and prepared for the next use of fort storage. As soon as the regulator is removed from the SCUBA cyclinder, reinstall the dust cap over the regulator inlet port. This cap is normally attached to the regulator yoke and therefore has been under water. Be sure to blow out the water in this cap before securing it over the inlet port. Ensure that the O-ring is in place inside the dust cap. As soon as possible after diving, the regulator must be rinsed in warm tap water, for a short period of time, to...

Check out our trip to the Georgia Aquarium virtually!!The open water season is at last almost upon us! Spring Refreshers. Are they important? As with anything in life practice make perfect. For many of us the winter season means little if any diving. Perhaps a few dives south or a few pool sessions. While these are great fun and practice we need to ask if they are enough! How are your table skills, what about your dive planning skills, do you know you air consumption rate after the winter? After asking these questions to yourself then ask “when is the next refresher?” For us in Ontario we need to add in one more reason to be sharp at the beginning of the season THE WATER IS COLD at the beginning. Are you ready? Our 4D Skill builder refresher series starts in March and will continue until the diving in the lakes begins. This year we will continue these on the Wednesday evenings but will also try out holding them on Friday mornings. So come on out and take the time and get ready for this years open water season. See the events schedule for more information or to sign up,...
