Short compilation from Saturday's dive. All week the weather was calm and seas flat. Saturday, poring rain and seas are 2'-4' with some 5 and 6'ers thrown in to make it nautical. Worse, the current was running north and the seas were coming out of the north due to the numerous squalls. Rain, lightning, zero visibility top side, but below, great visibility. FYI, at 2:19, you cant really see it, but it is a school of barracuda, something that has been missing on the reefs for years due to commercial spear-fisherman pressure. Enjoy

Great video. One of my regrets is that I never took up scuba diving in my younger years.

Nice video. I haven't done any diving except quarries since last summer. Make me want to get in some ocean dives.

What computer is that?

Seabear. Great little computer with lots of bells & whistles but, unfortunately, ScubaPro bought the company, took some of their proprietary ideas, incorporated them into their computers and killed the brand.

It was fully adjustable and really easy to use, full Trimix computer with like 8 different user input gases, change the deco parameters, compass, switch gases on the fly. All kinds of stuff.

Where were you diving?

Sucks when one of the major brands buys and then messes with a solid piece of gear. The display like simple and easy to read without extra crap you don't need.

I've been diving a Shearwater Pursuit for years. I think it was the second model they made. So simple and easy to use. Will never lock you out no matter what you do. Like the Seabear you can change the deco profile you want to run. Easy gas switching. If something happens to a gas/tank and you can't use it you can remove the gas from the computer during the dive and it will change it's calculations/deco profile on the fly. I still cut tables with iDeco or vPlanner as a backup but that computer has been solid.

One day I may upgrade to a newer model with a color screen but I don't get a chance to do that much diving where I need such a computer these days.

Jay Dorman/Quallman Tugs. Area with lots of little wrecks that then dump you on to the third reef. It you go east into deeper water there is more reef and the old Pompano sewage outfall pipe.

Shearwater will be my next computer based on what my other buddies are using. They all really like it.
