Dive #44

 

Location: Kullen, Åkersberget, Sweden
Time down: 17:49 | Time up: 18:25 | Divetime: 36 min | Max depth: 18.8 meter | Average depth: 11.2 meter
Water temp: 11° | Air used: 1512 litre | SAC: 19.6 litre/min | Total divetime: 27h 34min

First dive at Åkersberget on Kullaberg National Park. We went out with my zodiac, even though the find started to get somewhat troublesome and the wave increased. But we stranded the boat and went down, where it was fairly calm, taking the surface condition in consideration. Was really cold below the second thermocline, and also really poor visibility. So we ascended back up and it was like a n aquarium coming back up. And also a lot warmer (well, at least it felt warmer). Didn’t have my camera with me.

Padi Rescue Diver Certification

Location: Helsingborg, Gröningen, Sweden
Time down: 10:04 | Time up: 13:00 | Divetime: 16 min | Max depth: 2.5 meter | Average depth: 2.0 meter
Water temp: 18° | Air used: 686 litre | SAC: 35.5 litre/min | Total divetime: 26h 58min

Dive section of the PADI Rescue Diver Course. Did some search pattern, look for missing diver and recovery of unconscious diver from bottom. We practice “live” style, with divers in panic and lost divers. Look at my SAC-rate.. was my adrenalin pumping or what? I think I swam like 1000 metres or so, with full gear. But it was a very useful education, and you really felt where your limits are. But all went fine and I am now a certified Rescue Diver.

Dive #43

Location: Kullen, Ransvik, Sweden
Time down: 22:39 | Time up: 23:28 | Divetime: 49 min | Max depth: 13.3 meter | Average depth: 8.5 meter
Water temp: 17° | Air used: 1498 litre | SAC: 16.5 litre/min | Total divetime: 26h 42min

Night dive at Ransvik and it was pitch black. The sea was like a mirror, no movement on the surface. I felt extremely relaxed during the dive and after, I just floated on my back watching the stars on the sky. Fantastic feeling, floating in a calm sea with a pitch black, cloud free sky above. Nothing much to the dive really, except for a pretty descent SAC-rate of 16.5 litres/min.
