This has become a popular dive so....... Are you newly certified? Do you want to go but are afraid that you will hold the others back? Are you a bit nervous about getting back into diving? Do you just wanna finally see us in person? THIS IS YOUR CHANCE!!!! I am going to run a series of these types of dives and limit the number of divers so we can keep the groups small and controllable. We will spend as much time as we need getting geared up. We will take our time getting on our fins in the water and will leisurely swim out past the sea lions. Once we are out we will descend at ur own pace and spend time at that spot finding neutral bouyancy. We will then make our way back via the buddy system (bring a rope if you feel you need a buddy line) when we get to about where I feel it is too hard to keep neutral bouyancy, I will signal all to dump all your air and kick to ascend to 15 feet where we will take out safety stop. then we will ascend. THEN WE WILL DO IT AGAIN! YAY! Bring enough for two dives, bring lots of warm drinks and clothes if you plan on diving twice. we will take about an hour between dives to discuss, decompress and decide how we can improve the next one. Things to remember: buddy checks, relax, dive plans, how to keep warm, hit your dive zen, buddy signs, have fun, what to do if you lose your buddy, how long your safety stop lasts, enjoy the critters, what to do if your buddy runs out of air? pretty basic stuff no? Basic skills for divers that we too often forget to go over before we descend. They remain key mistakes we often make. LETS NOT FORGET TO LAUGH AND ENJOY. We usually grab a bite afterwards for those who are interested.
