For the third dive of the students Open Water Diver course, Open Water Dives we first went to the sandy area at the center of Sharks Cove so that they could perform their required skills, then took a tour of Sharks Cove going over some shallower areas where the rocks from the bottom come up higher. This was done so the students could see how their depth affects their buoyancy and as they come up shallower they have to release more air from their BCD’s to keep from floating up too fast and surfacing accidentially. Again a couple of the students had some buoyancy issues which I assisted them with.
Since we completed dives 1, 2, & 3 of their Open Water Dives today we only have 1 dive left that they have to complete tomorrow. The forecast is that the waves will be a little higher tomorrow, so hopefully this will allow us to get it over with before it gets too bad for them.
