Who wants to dive this weekend?
ZachStokes777 - 12/01/2016 6:38 PM
I am looking to dive at rainbow river this weekend, possibly have the boat drop off at Devils elbow in rainbow river. Its roughly 24 feet deep in that spot, its very close to the actual park where you get on the boat. Spend most of the time diving in the hole/spring then doing a drift dive back to the ramp/park....
Musings of a "Fun Diver"
Airworks - 3/21/2016 6:56 PM
Though I try to hit the coast for some ocean diving at least three times a year (and as often as possible when traveling), my diving focus is inland (Virginia). I’m the kind of diver that enjoys simply getting wet, and it really doesn’t matter where that is. Give me a mud hole with at least 3’ feet to get prone in where I can blow bubbles while experiencing weightlessness and the sensation of flying for awhile, and I’m game. During the winter months, I tend to be one of the few divers using a we...
Dealing With Disappointment Dealing With Disappointment
ArthurCurry - 7/20/2015 10:34 AM
My wife and I had an opportunity this summer that we haven’t had in at least five years: we had time to ourselves without our 6-year old and 3-year old around. My wife’s dad and step-mom offered to take our boys off of our hands this summer for two weeks to give them a bit of a vacation and to give us a break from being parents and to spend some extra time with just each other. My wife, much to my pleasant surprise, decided to book us a hotel in the Outer Banks, NC. I had never been there before...
Russian Two Hose Rig Russian Two Hose Rig
SkyDogJack - 7/17/2015 8:11 AM
In 1996 I was traveling for several months in Southeast Asia, and while visiting Vietnam, I had the opportunity to do some diving offshore in the city of Nha Thrang. I had been a diver for over ten years and I tried quite a few different rigs, bit imagine my surprise when gearing up for the dive off a dive boat, I was presented with a two hose rig. What? I’d never even seen one, except for maybe "Seahunt" with Loyd Bridges as a child on television. Well, my Vietnamase Divemaster, (not really sur...
What I learned while not diving
lerpy - 11/09/2014 6:14 PM
I thought I would write something in the forum as I have not been on here for a rather long time due to a very busy dive season and various other things. I did not do much diving this season, but I did learn a lot. I had the fortune of getting a job as a deck hadn with a company that operates 5 dive boats in the St Lawrence and when I was not working at my real job I was out on the water. I was fortunate in that the other staff and owners were great, and I quickly went from loading gear to getti...
Why I Dive
TorbenLonne - 10/10/2014 7:15 AM
Diving makes me feel alive. I feel absolutely liberated when I plunge into the welcoming sensation of the water surrounding me. I have no boundaries and feel utterly alive. The water being warm or cold, with my proper wetsuit on nothing can hold me back from my dive. The bonus is that you will be fortunate to see all of the amazing marine life when you start diving, ranging from everyday familiar fish to the gigantic manta ray. Diving is an activity that will definitely give all who try it one o...

Out of Air
Agojo - 12/28/2013 8:18 AM
August 2013 on a charter (Florida Panhandle) 3 dive trip with dives to 102-114’ with 32% EAN. Buddy & I taking pics, being first in and last out on first two dives. On third dive we extended SI due to depth and nitrogen loading. On the way down we meet the spear fisherman that went down with short SI. We toured the wreck and started up anchor line thinking we were the last divers in the water. At 84’ we paused while I secured and stowed my camera. It was at this time we noticed a lone diver (spe...

Unidentified Fish
Jun - 4/28/2013 10:03 PM
We were building a few gas stations in an island in the Philippines and I have to check all of them every so often. The island is so rural it felt like stepping into the past. And it’s small enough to be circled in just three hours by motorcycle through a seaside highway. Though not so many, it has a steadily rising population. There are lesser people in the south part, and a long stretch of beach is un-peopled for most of the day. I usually stop by a bluff overlooking the sea, which has a view ...
