This week has been an incredible experience. 9 days of deep technical CCR dives and interesting seminars every night. Sitting around between dives chewing the fat with some of the who's who in the industry has really been just a blast. And to make it even more fun, I've been able to dive with both of my sons on each dive.
We have spent quite a bit of time this winter discussing and practicing our team diving skills and procedures, and I think the time has paid off. Josh and Michael are already excellent divers and diving with them as a 3 man team has been a great experience.
The weather has been on again and off again raining then sunny, but we have not had any dive called due to weather. Most of the dives have been between 300-330 feet, and we have really had a great chance to put the Hammerheads through the paces. Haven't had a single problem with them.
Cayman is a great place with for this kind of stuff, and everyone in attendance has been very friendly and open for discussions about CCRs and tech diving in general. It's been great to rub shoulders with some very experienced guys and listen to their thoughts on various things. Dive Tech has done an amazing job of keeping up with 64 CCR divers! The logistics much just be overwhelming!
We dove today at a place called Hepp's wall and a dive site called "Funky Town". We entered a tunner/cave/swim through at 180 and exited on the reef at 290 feet and kept going down the reef till 312. Incredibly quite and beautiful and relaxing!
