What a gorgeous day for a dive! The sun was bright, the temperature was hovering around the freezing mark, but compared to the deep freeze we’ve had lately, it felt like spring!

Off to the quarry!

When we arrived, we saw some people we hadn’t seen in a while, who were also waiting for other friends to arrive. Once everyone had arrived, there was some tag team chainsaw action going on.

 

We chatted as we geared up. Even though it was a bit chilly up the mountain, we were all happy to be out on such a great day!

 

Steve and I were the first in. We ran our line to the plane, practiced a few skills, and took a bunch of shots.

 

Me, by the plane…

 

Steve…

 

We noticed that the others were starting to enter the water, so we headed back along the line to get some shots…

 

Lol.. you can even see the “GUE” in the ice, that we had shovelled the week before.

 

Steve and I headed back, leaving the others to finish their dive.

Bottom Time ~ 43 mins.
Max. Depth ~ 31′
Water Temp. ~ 39
Vis. ~ Great!

 

We even caught sight of the elusive Ice Shark..

 

We doffed our gear, then came back to give the others a hand getting out…

 

Another fantastic day of diving under the ice!
