Diving in Eastport Maine with Jonathan Bird
Two weekends ago Christine and I had the pleasure to go diving on Eastport, Maine again. We did some diving with Jonathan Bird (http://www.blueworldtv.com/ ) and had a great time.
Eastport has, by far, some of the best diving in Maine, but with over 10 foot tides it also has some of the strongest currents on the eastern US. You can only dive at high or low slack tide. Local knowledge to determine best slack time is particularly important.
This is a beautiful area and it is a neat little town.
Here is a picture that Jonathan took right before Christine and I were going into the water.
Jonathan got to try one of my prototype DSV mouthpieces with one of my test Argonaut Kraken.
Here a video taken by Jonathan. I am using the other prototype DSV mouthpiece with one of my Argonaut Kraken. I am feeding Gene, one of Jonathan neighbors’ up in Eastport. Gene is a bit shy. I think he really appreciates that I am not blowing bubbles near his face. I actually got him to get fairly close to my face.
Here a special that Jonathan did on Wolf-fish.
This past year I have been traveling to the pacific north west and have been able to dive several times in Puget Sound and the san Juan Islands. The Wolf-fish over at there are bigger than over here, but I think ours are more handsome.
Note: I am getting to really like that bright yellow drysuit.
