I'm on holidays for the week so I've been diving just about every day now. Here's some links to a couple of dives I did on Saltspring 2 days ago. BEAVER POINT and:VESUVIUS BAY By the way, Hyperlimits, make sure you post about how Constance Bank and Brotchie go tomorrow. I'm really curious.
AL, the dive will be a nice one, you will have you fins swept away by pleasure
I hope the dive is a good one, Hopefully the weather will cooperate and the current will not be too strong. As for my fins as long as they don't get swept away in the current I'll be OK, After all those SP Jetfin are the best fins around and they cost me a Six pack of beer.
You may as well get some practice in for the next time you dive Boiling Reef on Saturna without a boat. Looking at a chart, Brochie Ledge appears to be a mere stones-throw compared to the San Juans.
Unfortunately (or fortunately), I never actually drifted as far as Boiling Reef. I had the sense to climb out at the point of Saturna. It's too bad the current always goes outwards there because of a back-eddy. Otherwise it would be a bit safer if the current took you back to your entry point. I think if Brotchie Ledge was in a current-free inlet, it would be close enough to swim too (if you weren't in a hurry), but there's a bit of current there so it would be a pretty long swim (if you ever made it). Plus there's all the boat traffic in and out of the harbour. Maybe one day I'll do it by "accident". When I was diving Gabriola, some ladies saw me climb out of the water and seemed confused as to where I had been. I told them I drifted across from Vancouver to save the cost of the ferry. They were amazed and asked me if I wasn't afraid of killer whales. They actually thought I was serious. (Yes, I told them I was joking - eventually).
