"advanced" scuba classes [Sep. 16th, 2005|03:20 pm]

So under some crazy logic, if you've taken 4 "advanced" scuba classes and done 25 dives, you're considered an advanced diver.

I guess some ridiculous percentage of people get certified to go on one vacation and never dive again. Silly.

Anyway, daveman692 is our motivated guy, so he created/negiotated a private weekend lesson with four of the advanced classes, so soon we'll be taking:

-- Night/limited visibility diving
-- Boat diving
-- Dry suit
-- Navigation

Then a couple more dives after that to reach 25 and we're "advanced", whatever that means.

But yeah, scuba's still fun. We went around and (partially) into a sunken amphibious personnel carrier last weekend, and I found a golfball (Titleist! anyone here a Marine biologist!?) and a Gilligan hat.

Did you go to the Am-Track at Del Monte or another one? There's a sunken sailboat about 50 yards away from the Am-Track at Del Monte, but other than those two things the diving there is boring as hell. No life.

Night diving even at Breakwater is fantastic with a good light.

PADI's concept of "advanced" is silly. The Rescue Diver class was helpful though.

Del Monte by Wharf 2, across from the McDonald's.

Breakwater at night is where I think we're going for our class.
