Saturday, October 19, 2013 from 1:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Sunken, but not Silent
Wreck Diving Workshop
The Dolphin Dive Center Wreck Diving Workshop is a custom, day long, non-certification program where participants will be engaged in discussions about ways divers can better identify their goals in wreck diving, and then achieve them. The Workshop has been created for us by well known wreck diver John Chatterton. John will provide his personal insights, derived from more than 25 years of experience as a scuba instructor, as well as his many expeditions to shipwrecks like the Andrea Doria, Lusitania, Britannic, and U-869. John will also be bringing some of his personal diving videos, to illustrate particular talking points.
The goal of the Workshop is to expose divers to different perspectives on wreck diving in an entertaining and informative forum, enabling them to become better divers. There are no prerequisites for this workshop, which is open to divers of all backgrounds, experience levels, and certifications from Open Water through Instructor.
Some of the topics for discussion will be Navigation, Equipment, Diving Physiology, Technical Diving, Dive Planning, Wreck Research, Shipwreck Penetration Techniques, and Decision Making. Participants are urged to bring their own questions, opinions, and relative issues. Discussions will be honest, civil, and informative.
