  1. Beer at a Training Weekend?

    by , August 1st, 2012 at 10:11 AM (DivemasterDennis-)
    Summertime is the time for open water training in Colorado, and we have 5 events over the summer. We call them "open water weekends," and we have anywhere from 15 to 30 students at each, in classes from open water through rescue and many specialties. Dive master candidates work on their requirements as well. We set up a large canopy, fire up the grill, and make it a real event. I have attended about 50 of these weekends, a couple as a student and the rest as part of the training staff. Last ...

  2. Some Things are More Interesting to Look at Than a Compass

    by , July 11th, 2012 at 02:42 PM (DivemasterDennis-)
    As you know from many of my posts on the discussions here on scubaboard as well as few other blog posts, I am big on navigation. I like to know where I was, where I am, and how to get to where I want to go while underwater.
    Last weekend my local dive center had its second open water weekend of the summer. We had 20 open water students, 4 advanced open water students, two rescue diver students and a man doing his altitude diving specialty. I was privileged to work with the advanced ...

  3. The Joy of New Divers

    by , June 22nd, 2012 at 01:04 PM (DivemasterDennis-)
    Last weekend I enjoyed being a part of training for 20 new open water divers. My local shop's ( Underwater Phantaseas, Lakewood, Colorado ) first summer training weekend went off without a hitch. Unseasonably warm weather caused our reservoir to be a balmy (for us) 68 degrees at the surface and 64 degrees at the training platforms. With three separate groups and instructors, things were done smoothly and thoroughly, and only one student was unable to complete her open water dives. She will be ...

  4. The Perfect Way to End a Night Dive

    by , June 1st, 2012 at 03:07 PM (DivemasterDennis-)
    On an Eastern Carribean liveaboard with Explorer Ventures, Debbie and I learned the best way to end a night dive.
    We were pleasantly surprised after our first night dive of the trip to find that upon returning to the boat a crew member was there, and poured warm water down the back of each diver’s wet suit right after removing the scuba unit. Now that is something you have to experience in order to understand how absolutely wonderful it feels! After the warm water bath we were each handed ...

  5. Logging Dives - It's a good thing to do.

    by , May 7th, 2012 at 04:15 PM (DivemasterDennis-)
    I just read the latest thread discussing logging dives. There is a new one almost every week. Some people don't log dives at all. My good friend Steve, who has been a dive pro as long as I have and a diver even longer than I have been diving, doesn't log dives. Others I know are content to retain the data their computer records, like my sometimes dive buddy Pete. Many others, like me, actually log every dive in a log book that has actual pages. I have logged every dive I have ever been on that ...
