Scuba Tech

12 January 2008 | Calabash Beach
We went diving with SCUBA Tech today. They are located right on the Calabash Hotel Beach at the back of Prickly Bay. A great group of folks with lots of experience from Germany and complimentary nitrox.

We wanted to do some of the dives farther out in the current and we always like to go with a shop the first time on the more technical dives. It is great to learn from there experience and also to have a chase boat.

We dove the Bianca C first. A famous Grenada dive due to the interesting history of the Bianca C. She is a cruise ship and she caught fire in Saint Georges harbor. There is a commemorative statue in the harbor to this day. She is a large vessel and lies on a bottom as deep as 130 feet. It was a nice dive though short due to the depth and current.

Next we dove shark reef, another drift dive just south of Prickly. This was a wonderful dive even for beginners. You can find lots of coral, tons of various reef fish, big spider crabs, a huge lobster nursery and the occasional nurse shark. Everything is in 40 feet or less and you can spend a long time drifting in the current.

Back at the dock we were greeted by the dog "SCUBA ", the mascot of the outfit. A great day of diving with a great group of folks.
