Altitude Diving Fun Times

Today I’ve headed into the mountains with a couple of friends to do some Altitude Diving. Not the highest mountains in the world, but being in a remote location changes all the things we take for granted when we’re doing diving from a boat or at an inland dive site. I consider this type ofContinue reading “Altitude Diving Fun Times”

Wales BSAC Regional ADP Course

We’ve just finished delivering a BSAC Accelerated Decompression Procedures (ADP) course at National Diving and Activity Centre, organised by the Welsh Regional coach. Working with the region, we as a BSAC centre, delivered the course for 7 students. The weather was good, the water was warm, and the students were keen. Day1 consisted of drillsContinue reading “Wales BSAC Regional ADP Course”

FV Our Hazel

Recently I was lucky enough to spend a day at sea onboard the Fishing Vessel Our Hazel. For me, it was about understanding how a commercial fishing vessel operates, functions and goes about its daily work in a safe and efficient manner…

Decompression Procedures Coaching

The end of three days of Decompression Procedures coaching resulted in a good long dive at Vobster Quay. People criticise using inland quarries for diving, however, in my personal experience, I believe that using an inland quarry for diver training is a great facility, allowing for controlled development in usually a controlled environment. I doContinue reading “Decompression Procedures Coaching”

Diving with a Stage

The second day at Vobster Quay has been a good one whilst we develop diving with a Stage. We started with the introduction of a decompression stage to enable the diver to accelerate their decompression penalty by using a richer oxygen mix, which in turn helps expel the Nitrogen from the body. The dive wentContinue reading “Diving with a Stage”

Twinset Coaching

Today I’ve been back at Vobster Quay diving centre running a twinset coaching course. The aim of the course is to introduce an existing twinset diver to the skills and drills of shutdowns and isolation. It’s something that I find a lot when a diver wants to develop their diving, carry more gas and stayContinue reading “Twinset Coaching”

Wreck Hunting Payoff!

Well what a week, it started with the hunt for an elusive wreck.. the marks we had took us to a reef but we’ve not been able to find the wreck. Today a group of like minded friends headed out a couple of hours with a mission to find the wreck. We shot the locationContinue reading “Wreck Hunting Payoff!”

Wreck Hunting Pembrokeshire…

Today a small group of friends headed out on Scavenger Dive Boat to search for an elusive wreck! We got the slack forecast spot on, dropped a shot on the mark and waited for the slack to arrive. Within 20mins it was slack and in we went. Diving down to nearly 40mtr, the current wasContinue reading “Wreck Hunting Pembrokeshire…”

Diving the LCG16 and the Caroline Wrecks

Today we headed out to the war grave wreck, LCG16 landing craft. We arrived just before slacks and shotted the wreck. We dived 35mtrs to the seabed and the shot was across a very large anchor. We followed a gully away from the anchor shortly reaching the wreck. As I lifted over a rocky reefContinue reading “Diving the LCG16 and the Caroline Wrecks”
