    Dove as a safety diver with Instructor John and his Open Water students Stan The Macho Man, Tuasopo (a diver that never earned a C-card) and a married couple Bonnie and Clyde.*

    His class seemed pretty “jazzed” from the last dive, especially Stan The Macho Man who high-fived John.

    I again took up the back of the class.

    Visibility sucked for Casino Point; “viz” has really sucked in general lately.

    According to John, if you can get all of your students under water on the first dive, it’s easier on the second one.

    Stan The Macho Man kept giving me the “thumbs up” sign whenever I would gesture and ask if he is OK.

    I kept thinking, “Why does he want to go up? He seems like he’s enjoying the dive and doesn’t appear to have any problems.”

    We went to a sunken barge and a sunken ship; there’s an opening in the ship that we all went through.

    The group became separated a few times because of the visibility and other divers were mistaken as part of the group.

    Stan The Macho Man came down, found me as I was looking for the group and gestured to ascend; the group was going in.

    I went back down and got Bonnie who separated from the group.
