Scuba News: February 2016

 

February 2016
Hello Divers!
As we start the month of February, I am dreaming of Shaun and the rest of the group in Cozumel right now!  As we look ahead we are getting excited for our Bonaire trip in March. Unfortunately we will be missing the Boston Sea Rovers Show due to our trip dates, but we will be back there next year! It’s a show you should really check out, they have great seminars, vendors, film festivals and more. We also look forward to connecting with the Danversport Marina for a new local show they are hosting (see below for details).  We had a great Photo Society meeting with many new faces. We have set up the majority of the summer class schedule so take a look on our website.
As all of you know diving can be tough in the month of February, but if you are tired of sitting around and daydreaming of diving come to us for a non-water speciality course like our Equipment Specialist, Nitrox and Dive Theory. Hone in on your dive skills before the main season starts. Or you can always stop by the shop for some good conversation, we love visitors!

Underwater Photography Guide: Photo Winners

The Underwater Photography Guide announced the winners of the 2015 Ocean Art Underwater Photo Competition last week. Photographers from over 50 countries submitted entries, $70,000 in prizes were given out, and the whole range of ocean life was on display.

These photos are unbelievable!

Thermal Stress & Decompression
A diver’s thermal status has long been known to influence decompression risk. The impact is best appreciated by considering the two fundamental phases of every dive: the descent and bottom phase, when gas uptake occurs, and the ascent and stop phase, when gas elimination occurs.

Upcoming Trips
Bonaire: 1 Room Left!
March 5th – 12th, 2016
 
For over 25 years Undersea Divers has been running trips to this “Diver’s Paradise” and divers have been coming back year after year. If you’ve never been to Bonaire, don’t miss out on this opportunity to experience pure diving freedom. Bonaire’s pristine reefs and diverse marine life are unique to the Caribbean. Because the waters around Bonaire are designated as an official marine park, diving Bonaire is like diving the Caribbean the way it used to be – untouched and unspoiled. The island’s location in the south Caribbean gives it an arid climate with little rainfall; consequently, the waters are exceptionally clear of silt, calm, and divable year round. It is an ideal destination for underwater photographers. Water temps average a warm 78-84° with visibility often over 80 feet and frequently up to 150 feet. Few destinations offer the photographic opportunities that you will find in Bonaire. With incredible visibility, abundant fish life and healthy reef system, wide angle opportunities are naturally abound. But it is the bounty of macro life visible both day and night, that truly sets Bonaire apart.
