On my first Sunday dive, I got to be the up rope diver. It took a bit, but I did finally get the hang of it. Thanks to Paul for being the down rope diver on my first try. We settled into a similar rotation as on Saturday. Later I got to dive up rope again with Gary, and finally with Rick in his wetsuit.
We all got in about five dives (two beyond what was required for the Ice Diver certification), and saw some beautiful coral reefs, and were surprised of how the fish survived the freezing temperatures, then it was time to go. We packed everything up, pushed all the ice blocks back into the hole to help it freeze over more quickly, left three palettes out on the ice to mark the hole as it was freezing (Rick would remove these later), and headed back into town. Exhausted, but happy.
This Is Not Your Average Scuba Dive
