    Second Dive On The Palawan, Plus My First 3D Underwater Video!

    So, with our first dive history, and some apparently really good video from my new camera, Dry Suit Greg and I were in good spirits.

    Another dive, as we both felt, may not be necessary, as before our surface interval would be over, the tech divers would be ready to leave.

    All the tech divers made it back to the boat, but Andrew, the Tech Instructor had a mission – retrieve the reel that they had left behind.

    OK, we now had a reason for them to wait…

    Logged SCUBA Dive #395

    Dove with Dry Suit Greg
    The Palawan Wreck, Redondo Beach, CA

    In With: 2800 psi
    Out With: 1200 psi
    Max depth: 120 feet
    Waves: Choppy
    Visibility: 30 to 40 feet
    Water Temperature: 53 degrees
    Air Temperature: 72 degrees
    Total Bottom Time: 14 minutes bottom time, 22 minutes total

    I did not take my camera on this dive.

    We descended, just like the first dive, but Greg had on a second tank, of pure Oxygen.

    Hmm? We still had some surface interval left.

    We hit bottom and swam to the wreck.

    Right on the bow was a line that was tied; Greg followed it under the deck, all the way to the stern, found the lost reel and reeled it all the way back to the bow.

    I followed behind and above him – that was basically the entire dive.

    After retrieving the reel, he motioned to me and asked “What do you want to do?”

    I responded with the signal, “I’ll follow you.”

    To the anchor line we went.

    During the safety stop at 15 feet, Greg started breathing his pure Oxygen.

    I looked at my computer – I was in the “green” of my non decompression limits, just barely.

    I wondered if I should be hitting the O2 myself?

    We both made it back, safe, and without getting bent.

    Below is the first video that I made with my new camera – I’m not as good of an editor as Professional Debriefer Paul, so you’ll have to bare with me.

    It is in 3D – start the video and adjust it to the viewing method you wish (type of glasses, etc.), or turn the 3D off altogether.

    1. I like the video, did you guys see any large bugs on that wreck.

    2. Hey Halibug, We didn’t see any lobsters on the wreck at all. I don’t think they’re that deep yet.
