Three Coral Reef Sailing, one Sea Exploring, one Scuba Liveaboard and one Scuba Adventure crew arrived yesterday at the Florida Sea Base. Plus the Class 8 of the Divemaster Academy is still in progress. Busy, busy.
The DMA candidate that had the medical incident was doing well yesterday. The remaining candidates completed their timed, 100 yard tired diver tow and an exercise called an “equipment exchange” for score yesterday morning. After lunch, we went to a deep spur and groove site named Victory Reef. The site was dubbed Victory because the coral wall is in the shape of a V. We completed dive three (of four) of the PADI Deep Diver Specialty course. We bottomed out at 91 feet.
After dinner the DMA candidates logged their last three dives. Dave Ball made a night dive presentation and we looked at the remaining schedule so everyone could review the goals of each exercise in advance.
The Divemaster candidates are scheduled for three dives this morning. The Coral Reef Sailing crews will be leaving the dock shortly. The Sea Exploring and Scuba Liveaboard crews will be taken by van to their vessels waiting at non Sea base docks. The Scuba Adventure crew complete the BSA Swimmers Test this morning and go diving this afternoon.
