We went to Mt. Victoria again.

Please see DSAT Blog for the last Blair Athol dive.

I was there for some more photos because I was so tired from carrying the dive gear last time, but I end up carrying the tanks again. I couldn’t watch my buddy suffering.

I think he will write a report on the DSAT Chat so keep eye on it!

Oh! I didn’t write anything last week but I have completed the DSAT Tec Level One on the last Sunday.

We had 4 boat dives on last week end. All skills went really well. However, my buoyancy wasn’t so good few occasions. I need more practice and experience.

2 weeks off and the rest of Tec Deep Course will start 17 July and finishes 26 July. I will  become Tec Diver if everything goes well.

This DSAT Tec Deep Course is challenging but lot of fun at the same time. I would recommend this course if you looking for more in diving adventure!

Old Mine Diving

I went to Blue Mountain last Saturday.

My usual dive buddy wanted to dive the Blair Athol Mine No.4, a Colliery Incline and I went with him to help carrying gear and take some photos.

Walking down to the entrance wasn’t too bad. His dive plan was max depth of 66 metre for 25 minutes and 50-60 minutes deco. I jumped in to 6 metres to see buddy at deco for some photos, but I realised that this kind of diving needs a special training and I wasn’t quite comfortable in the water so I came back after 7 minutes. Water visibility wasn’t too bad til I stuffed up with my buoyancy.

Anyway, it was an experience. Actually coming back up with the gear was a bit of work we took almost 2 hours (Because I had to stop so many times to get my breath back). Difinitely I need some regular excercise.

BTW, I found a leak on my dry suit and it is on repair so I can’t dive for little while til it comes back. So photos might be next weekend!
