    Octopus Lovers

    Was diving on the weekend at Ogden Break Water and found the largest octopus that I have ever seen. When the octopus fans out to catch its' prey, the webbing between the arms easily reaches 6 feet across. I am guessing this would be about a 10-12 foot or more octopus. Sweet...

    Kelvin Grove Vis? / Re-Introduction

    Hi Tersch (Hunter) it is good to see that you are back into diving. I dove Kelvin on Thursday and the vis was good, easy 30' plus. We had gone left from the stairs. And yes we are still kicking around and diving. We all will have to hook up for a dive.

    Checking your buddy's gas

    Ditto on what Howard said. With my regular dive buddies I don't check unless I am suggesting a change in the dive plan mid dive and need to know if we have the gas to do it. With all new buddies or new divers I do check throughout the dive(s) until comfortable diving with them.

    Vancouver/Vancouver Island recommendations for late November

    Darnold9999, I have dove Active Pass and it is awesome, tons of life in the channel. I have only dove it on a slack tide but it can be done as a drift also (live boat). Oh and bring ear plugs for when the ferries go by plus every bone in your body will shake. We were diving along the edge of the...

    Ocean Quest Dive Centre

    Two thumbs up for Ocean Quest, a good store to do business with. You can joke with the staff and owners as they all like to have fun, they are divers themselves. Competitive pricing and if you find it cheaper somewhere else, they are willing to haggle price.

    Which local shop for OW cert

    I have been with Ocean Quest for a few years now and while they have expanded and the staff has changed, I have always found them a good group of people to do business with. People do have off days from time to time and this may have been one of them but I can guarantee you that it is not the...

    DIN Plugs in O2 Cylinders. Good Idea? Bad Idea?

    The DIN plugs I have are plastic, thoughts on this type of plug please. I use them when my tanks are stored for a while to keep the dirt out.
