|Rosa and Cruz with the Sea Divers - Personal report|
Posted by Eric S on December 06, 2007 at 19:14:04:|
Once again I made it down to dive with the Sea Divers.
I got in 8 dives total.
The one dive I probably could have gotten a few bugs was the twilight dive (4th of the day) which I missed due to some leg cramping on the the third dive. I didn't feel comfortable doing that dive in case a current came up. We just happened to be in a current prone area and I would've been screwed. I needed to build up some electrolites for the night dive.
Next day, woke up late. I'm smelling food cooking and figure it's probably time to get up. My watch was up in my gear bag so I was lost on time frame. I get up to the deck and everybody is gearing up for the first dive. Holy Sh_t! I better get with it!
The following 4 dives of the day were wonderful. I semi gave up on bugs because the diving was so beautiful. I got bombed by 50-60 playful juvinile sea lions,I saw awesome terrain, and got a limit of really big scallops, thanks to Brian for loaning me his scallop iron. Oh yeah, I lost my knife the previous day going balistic over a bug that was holed up. I wasn't trying to stab it or anything, I was trying to get some urchins out of the way so I could grab and kill it!
A few things I learned:
Wear my 1/2" suit for both days so I don't miss any dives even though it's overkill and I get too hot in 53 degree water, but I'd rather be to hot than marginal.
Get all the stuff off my wrists so I have both hands available to kill things.
Start backpack diving.
Go the opposite way from what everybody tells you.
I can't wait for the next trip.
