Haymarket - May 10 - Drysuit cert divesA few divers from Sterling Silver Scuba (Nathalie, Kevin, Austin, Jason, Kyle and I) went to Millbrook this weekend for some training dives. The water was warmer than a couple weeks ago, 50F at the surface, 45F on the platform at 30ft, 42F at 80ft. Vis was less than 10ft from the surface down to the platform at 30ft. As soon as we reached 40ft, the visibility improved to about 25-30ft, but it was very dark. Without light, it was like a night dive... The layer of algea was so thick (30ft) that it completely blocked the light at 50ft.

Nathalie and Austin (KevinD’s son) did very well on their drysuit training dives, demonstrating all the skills necessary to meet PADI standard to get certified. In the meamwhile, Kyle, an AOW student, braved the cold in a thick wetsuit and did a couple adventure dives (deep and nav) with Jason.

Congratulations to the new drysuit specialists! You should get a couple promo items from PADI since it’s the specialty of the month...
