  1. Fun with Scooters

    Underwater Scooters

    Scooters are a great tool for technical divers.
    They help us save breathing gas, while getting us from point A to point X in a hastier manner.
    A couple of us were at the local quarry testing some gear and there was a fellow offering test dives of these wonderful machines.

  2. Secret Math Trick Advantage of the Metric System

    And yet some more examples of the utility of the Metric System:

    Discovered an interesting one-to-one correspondence between depth and gas consumption rate in bar/min, while diving with double AL80's (and why I now prefer using the Metric System even here in the States). An example:

    With the start of the rainy season here in Costa Rica, +Oceans Unlimited & Go Pro Costa Rica are ready with some great training opportunities. For some of us, we breathe a sigh of relief that the rains have started, for others, it's a sigh of disappointment. As the ever optimist I like to think of it as a good thing. The rainforest that we live in is green and lush and the quite ...
  5. How NOT to Irritate Your Instructor/DIvemaster!

    There is an article on Scuba Money posted recently all about how to irritate your instructor/divemaster. It is well written and spot on, and funny. I read it as tongue ion cheek, but the fact is a lot of divers do just what the writer says, and it can be irritating to the DM or instructor. So, in order to NOT irritate your divemaster or instructor, one should do the opposite of what that article says.
