Argonauts and Phoenix Regs in Sitka

Sun Mar 19, 2017 3:20 am

Vintage Double Hose was well represented in Alaska this week. In a single day, there were 2 Krakens and 2 Phoenix regs sharing the dive sight.

Here is a sample of H2O Doc's movie magic. He dives a PRAM with gray hoses and really cool, Jack the Frog Man sticker.

I'll post more as the videos are edited.

Today we ran North to Gagarin Island and Crow pass. There were lots of whales and Sea Lions feasting on the herring schools.

This Sea Lion came over to check out the Phoenix regs we were diving.

Thanks for sharing. I put the link on the VDH FB page as well.

Thought I would post another video from Chris.

The "Mistral" Phoenix needs a different thread all to it's own, and that story is not complete. I'll try to get something posted in the next couple of weeks.

Also, the weather last month was snowy and rainy... We were removing snow and ice from the boat every morning and the docks were slippery as all heck! Most of our dives were with PRAMS or Argonauts and all the regulators breathed flawlessly.

The final video from the 2017 movie-making trip. No DH regs, but a good view of No Thoroughfare Bay.

And for the record, it was NOT too snowy to go diving, just wanted to take the kids sledding in fresh powder.
