Lovely morning in the pool, no photos today:( Rich and Justin enjoyed helping Maggie and Peter with refreshing their theory and dive skills after quite some time out of the water, it all came back to them as the pool session went on though which was great to see. I just enjoyed hanging about in my sidemount gear, love being underwater. It was nice to see my family in for a swim too:) looking forward to the next session already ;))) ... See MoreSee Less

Lisa’s work on her buoyancy is reaching the point where she no longer needs water! 😂

Also looks like midair breaststroke.🙂

We all love a good holiday in the sun and in the water but we want to avoid using sunscreen and damaging aquatic life, but still protecting ourselves from UV Rays...

Want to get involved, every diver can by reporting their sightings of Ghost fishing gear anytime the see it on a dive. Please use this link: https://www.ghostfishing.org/uk/report/ and provide as much information about the dive site, where you saw it, depth, drawings, photos and videos if possible.

Are you a technical diver? Please take the time to help DDRC, your information could help others, thanks

I think I will be converting to these soon, Rich and Scott are getting on well with theirs - is anyone else using them? What are your thoughts?

To add my ten cents worth... I was a little doubtful of the design of these. I mean - how different can a bolt snap be from another bolt-snap, right? However having used them a few times now, I gotta say that I am impressed. The gates slide more easily than the ones I had, the trigger and finger support work really well while using my dry gloves, and the off center swivel on the large snap is one of those "well duh - of course its better!" kind of things! I should point out that that asymmetry means it is possible to get them the wrong way around on your side mount tanks!

Well that was my last salty dive for 2018, but there is still tomorrow to squeeze in our last fresh water dives of 2018. Thanks to everyone for a good couple of dives, a dark 2m on the Benny (lots of congers and Lobsters) and the Lulworth Banks drift we have around 2.5m-3m bit lighter dive with lots of huge starfish, cuckoo wrasse and a large undulate ray at the end of the dive. We also saw a lone dolphin as we were just back into the Harbour, it swam under the boat a few times and at the stern for a few minutes. Cheers everyone, Happy New year
