Gilboa Quarry Dive Trip

On Sunday, I traveled to Gilboa Quarry in Northwest Ohio to dive. This was my second trip there, so I did not do video as I did that last time. Here are some photos:

Here is my dive buddy, Landen, inside the plane

Portage Quarry Dive

I traveled to Bowling Green Ohio on Saturday to dive Portage Quarry. It is a large fresh water quarry in northwest Ohio and my dive buddies were Kevin and Denny. It was a beautiful 80 degree summer day and I am glad that we went as summer is flying by. I wanted to take video, but the visibility was too bad. However, I did take still pictures and the visibility was pretty good by the underwater silo.

On top of the silo is the underwater memorial to Jacques Costeau

This was a very powerful and emotional moment for me and for a second or two, I forgot about being underwater in the quarry.

I felt very awestruck and humbled. Growing up, I watched the Costeau TV National Geographic Society specials and he had an influence on me getting into diving.

Barbados Dive Photos

Not me, though I wish. When I was in Fort Lauderdale, one of my dive buddies was Katherine from Barbados. I sent her photos of our Fort Lauderdale dives and she sent me these photos from her weekend Barbados dive.

Fort Lauderdale Reef Dive Photos

After each deep wreck dive, we did a twenty to thirty
foot reef dive. Here are some typical photos of the
reefs off shore of Fort Lauderdale.

It is about 70 feet down. The visibility was
about 30 feet and water temperature was 85 degrees.
Nice dive.
