This was a big weekend here at DWF, with not one, but TWO events this weekend.
For starters, DWF led Columbia Scuba‘s most recent Oyster diving trip. DWF and 5 of his closest oyster loving dive buddies headed over to Kent Island Wharf Saturday morning for a few hours in the Chesapeake to grab as many oysters as we could find!
Conditions were great. Air temps were around 75, water temperature was in the mid-70s and visibility was between 5-10 feet. That’s as good as it gets for oyster diving! Between the six of us we grabbed about 4 bushels of oysters.
One of the benefits of being friends with Frank is that he’s pretty generous with his oysters, as can be seen my these photos taken on my way home.
Does this sound awesome? Do you regret missing it? Well DWF is doing another oyster dive next month. If you’ve got a group and want me to make one more happen contact DWF directly and we’ll make some magic!
The second half of this weekend was spent completing the Public Safety Diver and Surface Support Specialist class for the Fifth District Volunteer Fire Department’s Dive Team. I really enjoy teaching this class! It’s amazing to watch a group of individuals come together a few weeks ago, and see them begin to work as a cohesive dive team during both skills development and scenario practice!
Remember, the FDVFD Dive Team is always recruiting!
