to Scuba NorthWest! We appreciate your visit and interest
in some of the best diving around. We are Northwest divers,
we like cold water, we like wind, we like swell, we like surge,
we like to explore the underwater world, and we surely like
to eat seafood. We are not a dive shop, a charter service,
or instructors...we leave that work up to the professionals
in those fields. We simply dive and bring .our
adventures to you. So thanks for coming .along.
Hopefully we can take you away for a brief .time
to an underwater world of
and give you a smile along the way.
Storms Just Keep Coming
my friends...the storms have been non-stop since October.
Rain does not fall ALL the time during the Oregon winter...but
when the clouds have parted, and the warm sun colors the sky blue, our efforts to explore the Big Blue have remained elusive.
The coast has been windy...the offshore swells pretty big. Worry not! I expect
our first dive opportunity in March...maybe April. The
incredible clarity of late winter diving is just around
the corner. I get so excited this time of year...the
clear water will be incredible. We might get really lucky
and jump into 50 feet of visibility. The freezer has
been empty for months now...no crab, no seabass, no
lingcod...sigh. The boat is waxed, engine serviced,
and pole spear sharpened. I feel like a kid counting down the days to Christmas.
An entire summer of fresh seafood is just around the
corner. I can almost hear the fresh rock scallops simmering
in my trusted iron skillet. In the meantime, I put together
a little slideshow from our many adventures, and will
continue to add photos until our next dive story.
I also linked to a cool little soundtrack. So...sit
back, relax, and let your mind drift to the serenity
of the underwater world. Enjoy.
The spear. If you love seafood...just like we do...you
need the gear to bring back the meal. Nothing better than
ocean fresh. No fishy flavor here, just a clean taste
with a hint of the sea, and a delicate texture you will
never find with a frozen fillet. We love to sightsee when
we dive. We love to capture the underwater world with
pictures and movies. But..oh my...we really love to eat
