Thread: Actual diving use of dive watches with pics

    Actual diving use of dive watches with pics

    I know I'm sort of the odd man out here actually using dive watches while diving but for me I find they work best for a quick glance ET and if I run navigation legs or search patterns the sweep second hand just registers better.
    So some shots from last weeks dives
    My Modded SMP gets the most use


    We have had great viz in Monterey lately, Monday we dove on an ebbing tide so the bottom was clear but puffs of sand would pop up often {outgoing tide os a sort of flushing action so good viz most of the time}
    Bright day and 40 foot viz brings out different critters,
    Giant Nudi's





    Halibut

    Octopus
    Darting away

    after attacking the camera man

    Decorator crab, these cover themselves with all sort of camo


    Not sure if this was a Harbor Seal or a SeaLion

    What is all over those bones? Ocean maggots

    I'll add some more pics later

    I usually only take watch pics to help organize the sequence of the dive pics and events, so a really good watch pic is rare.

    That's awesome Lex! +Rep for showing off some real diving pics. Over the last decade I have only been diving around once per year on average, so I have not invested in any sort of underwater photo gear. I've got lots of old pictures that I could scan, but most are pretty crummy. I'll see if I can find anything worth sharing.

    some very short vid clips

    in case you missed it, there was an octopus hiding in that first clip

    Thanks Gabe, I have a spare camera if you want to borrow it for your next dive.
