Deep Down - A Macy Davis Story Deep Down - A Macy Davis Story
PeachyJordanScuba - 5 days 11 hours ago.
Note, this is a story, not informational post! The water was a sort of frothy blue. Whales and dolphins brushed the top of the water like whip cream over a hot coco. It was cold, salty, splashing every which way. Fish swam thickly in the water below and swarms of tuna bumped the side of the boat. Lucy hobbled over to her seat, the boat shaking and her stomach churning. "You okay there, Luce?" Captain Logan called from the wheel. Lucy shook her head, her red curls bouncing along as she sat down. ...

Third Dive Of Opening Night (Morning)
PSD - 24 days 10 hours ago.
September 27, 2014 The bugs were deep and all of us were super saturated with Nitrogen. We had to try deeper places, so the Captain pulled anchor to find a similar spot. After a 20 minute boat ride and a surface interval of over an hour, we anchored in a not so secret spot – […]...

First of all are we thinking “Bugs, Lobsters?” Many will say YES!! heading for the pot! Without a second thought, gear is always ready right? It’s the timing of the moment that comes around at precisely 12:01AM Saturday Morning after working all day Friday a piece of gear breaks or doesn’t work. Personal gear planning takes on now a different nature of what’s at stake, cost of lobster license, and the chance to get an opening night bug. Roarrrrrrrrr! Extra Rope if t...

Hurdles to cross as an instructor teaching open waterI have mentioned this in the past, that as a scuba instructor its not all about the diving, and this was clearly proved over my last class. Counsellor would fall into the role here. Over the past weekend I was working with a group of 15 open water students. Now those of you that know me, are aware of the fact that I don’t normally teach too many open water classes now. The new instructors in the dive center very kindly do that, allowing me to ...
