Garth from Calgary AB | Scuba Diver

I am a new-ish AOW diver..
Looking for dive buddies with experience who would like to do weekend or weekday after work dives occasionally. I would like to keep it relatively local (Calgary or immediate area like Minnie, Two Jack, Forget Me Not...). I would like to increase my bottom time, learn from my buddy’s experiences, and become a better diver.
My wife does not dive... or drive, but would definitely be willing to accompany as shore support / bird watcher. :)

Thanks for reading, hope to hear from you soon!

Hi Garth. My name is Rick Fluet and I’ve had my OW and drysuit cert since September 2016 and obtained my Nitrox earlier this year (haven’t dove it yet). I am going for my AOW in June as well (Waterton). I consider myself to be a safe and conservative diver and I’ve been doing pool and splash sessions over the winter to practice my emergency skills - lots of fun. Doing a Diving Propulsion Vehicle (DPV, the underwater scooter things) on Monday at SAIT - that should be fun.

I live in Airdrie and will be doing a fair bit of local OW diving (hoping to anyways) via the Underwater Outlaws and Alberta Underwater Council dive events - you should check them out on FB; perhaps we can connect.

Rick, It’s good to meet you so quickly. I am doing the June 3rd & 4th AOW in Waterton with Dive Shop. I also want to be conservative and safe. I have been to a couple of splashes too and they sure give you a nice place to just work on skills. I have signed up for the MacKenzie cleanup in August and then the Arbour Lake in September. I would really like to connect and have someone to build bottom time with. If it’s okay, I can send you a message via facebook or whatever and give you my number. Looking forward to talking to you.

Hi Garth. Sure, look me up on FB and send me a message. I plan on hitting the Mahogany and Sundance lake cleanups June 3/4 as well as the Chaparral and Arbor cleanups.
