Weekend report: We had a busy weekend with buoyancy workshops on Saturday and our first RAID divemasters practicing some skills in the pool.
We also did some deep dives at Bermuda; viz was about 3m with dark water. Students did very well. On Sunday we expected the deep divers to have bad viz again but we were treated to beautiful blue clean water!!!! We went to Gunners for their 40m deep dive. It was one of those very special dives with crystal clean water, stunning soft corals and lots of fish. We dropped down on the pinnacle at 26m and gradually swam down to the table at 30m. The basket sea stars looked like they were are on steroids! From there we went to the sand patch at 40m. They did some computer skills and watch a puff adder shy shark that came to greet us. smile emoticon From there we worked our way up to the pinnacle again. A truly mind blowing dive. It’s so fantastic to be that deep, it is so calm down there and the corals are so big and healthy! They clocked 30min, well done guys!!! From there we did a 20m dive at the wall, also clean water!
A big congratulations to Charles and Belinda who qualified as specialist deep divers!!
We also had some qualified open water divers on a shore to build some hours up for their RAID deep course to begin soon.
A fantastic dive weekend.
Remember the first Research and photographic dives will be on the 15th. We will let the group know when the lectures are.
Have a good week everyone!
