    November Roll Call

    Maximum depth you will get on a shore dive is 25 - 30 feet. No issues diving solo from shore - I have done it numerous times. No issues doing unlimited shore dives either. If the resort is full to capacity, they just don't like anyone stockpiling tanks in their lockers - tanks need to be...

    November Roll Call

    I get to Scuba Club early afternoon on the 20th as well. Arriving via United Airlines from Houston. I will have a fellow from Ottawa joining me for the week. He is only there for a week, but I get to stay an extra week as I am using my March 2020 reservation. Have you been to Scuba Club...

    Victoria Vis conditions?

    Madrona Point - one of our favourite dive sites, around 1:00 this afternoon. First photo is looking towards Madrona Point from Rathtrevor Beach. Second photo is the normal small "V" entry point. Waves much bigger than the photo shows. Did see some divers coming out at the big "V". Not sure...

    Victoria Vis conditions?

    Over the past few weeks, the vis has been good to great in the central island. Starting to see some sea lions, usually one or two together, but not the masses we see in late January through the herring spawning season in March. Now if the wind would just settle down, we could get back in the...

    Sea Life Sea Dragon Flash

    I have a Sea Dragon flash that I use in conjunction with my DC2000 camera. Lately I have had an issue whereby the flash either won't turn on once I descend, or fails to turn back on during the course of a dive. This morning I descended to approximately 15 feet, turned on the flash, and took a...

    New drysuit suggestions

    The only thing I might add would be a pocket, but wouldn't bother with anything else. With camera system, light, etc I am already carrying too much !! Divegoose

    New drysuit suggestions

    Still own my Seatux suit. Almost 500 dives on it. I have had to change out the neck and wrist seals once, due to wear and tear. I would still recommend a Seatux suit. You can contact the owner - Paul - at 250-390-1122. I don't think you will be disappointed in a Seatux suit !! Divegoose

    Victoria Vis conditions?

    Very poor conditions in the central island right now. Vis at Madrona this morning was measured in inches and not feet - so bad we aborted the dive 2 minutes in. Reports from other divers - Oak Point had about 3 feet of visibility, and Tyee had about 5 feet of visibility. Divegoose

    Victoria Vis conditions?

    Conditions in the central island are starting to deteriorate a bit. Dove both Cottam Point and Tyee Cove this week, and the upper layers (above 30 feet) are starting to get a bit soupy. Should we get a few warm days in a row, I can see vis dropping right off to almost nothing as is normal for...
