and sunny. It was a fantastic day for diving, especially in February! It was also a very good class: all graduated and are now certified open water divers.

Let’s get wet! Dive safe, Dive often!

Programs and Publicity

At February’s Barracuda meeting, our entertainment will be a presentation by Phil and Linda Stasik about diving the “Golden Triangle” of Indonesia. Their video and slide presentation will highlight a 5-week trip that they took in June and July of 2018, which included stays at two different resorts and a long, one-way overwater trip on the “Raja Ampat Aggressor” live-aboard dive boat.

The central and eastern portions of Indonesia are

among the most ecologically diverse marine environments on Earth. Many of the places that the Stasiks dove are very remote, yet some are literally right under municipal docks in heavily populated areas. Every dive was fascinating!

Please come on Thursday to learn more about the contrasting beauty, diversity, and severe pollution problems of this far away archipelago. Who knows, you may just want to go see it for yourself!
