Fall diving!

Posted by on in Adventures
I know you many this phrase brings thoughts of cold but that is just not the case! For me fall diving is my favorite time for local dives. This is when the crowds are less, parking is way better lakeside and fish encounters are better too! Please take a moment to read the page three section on sunset diving. For those of you that feel September is a time to start looking indoors come out and I will show you what I mean. In addiction you can rest assured that we have already made plans to keep you active and having fun even if the weather is not quite as warm as we would like. Our indoor pool session of already been booked and will start appearing on our schedule.

Why go night diving?

Posted by on in Training & Refreshers
Why should you learn to be a Night Diver? Night diving introduces us to a whole new underwater world. Even a local dive site which you have been on several times takes on a new perspective at night. The change of day brings out different fish, life forms, creatures and plant life as the nocturnal become active at night. They will appear different or even just simply appear. When you make a day dive, you normally scan the entire dive site looking at your surroundings. At night, you see only the area of the dive site that is lit by your light. This means that you see less of an area but way more in the area and you to slow down and concentrate on that one area. For many divers part to the lure of a night dive is that there tends to be more mystery as fish and other items appear only a short ways away. For me the lure is the fish. The best fish encounters have all been on night dives. So if you have not ever been on a local night dive then just contact us and you will be in for a treat!...

Sunset and our fall diving!

Posted by on in Equipment
The fall is an excellent time to dive. Often the visibility is better and the fish experiences more and bigger. Another plus is there is more parking, less boats and less people. With all of this in the plus column there is also a few minus column items too. Cooler evenings and morning, cooler water temperatures, fading sunlight and shorter daylight hours. With these in mind in effect for club dives: All Dives Wear full cold water suits  Bring warm cloths to put on after the dive and a blanket or warm up jacket.Wednesdays Start times will be 6 pm for briefings starting September 11  As will now find ourselves diving through dusk and even into the dark Non night certified divers will need to be out of the water 30 minutes prior to sunset. Divers that are Advanced or Night Certified can dive past sunset.  In addition all divers and floats will need to be marked with a light.Please contact our Dive Master Team for details. For those wishing to become night or advanced please contact Bill. We will offer this course throughout the fall, simply contact him....

Preventing overheating or being cold is an important consideration for divers. You can still overheat during the September weather. Before the dive be sure to get all of your gear ready and assembled or laid out before you put on your wet or dry suit. If needed get in the water with your suit on to cool and then get out and put on your scuba gear. During the dive if you are hot and in a wet suit open the neck to let some water enter and cool you. After the dive take your gear and suit off right away and then get dry weather / temperature appropriate clothing on, especially in the cooler fall evenings....
