Welcome to Scuba NorthWest! We appreciate your visit and interest in some of the best diving around. We are Northwest divers, we like cold water, we like wind, we like swell, we like surge, we like to explore the underwater world, and we surely like to eat seafood. We are not a dive shop, a charter service, or instructors...we leave that work up to the professionals in those fields. We simply dive and bring our adventures to you. So thanks for coming along. Hopefully we can take you away for a brief time to an underwater world of wonder, and give you a smile along the way.
 

The Big Blue is Always Amazing

May 2016. Nice Weather. The Big Blue was calling to us again. Actually it beckons all the time, but our volatile northwest weather must open the door for a visit. We had such an open door in May...flat ocean, calm breezes, a slight overcast. The boat was ready and we made our move. I was excited to get offshore again, GoPro in hand. A fanatic now to a new video hobby...bringing the wonder of the underwater world to you. I remembered the mesmerizing experience of our April Fools Day dive, and I could barely contain myself. Another possible dive day of 40 feet visibility. I had been thinking about picking up a light for the GoPro and had been doing many hours of research on Amazon.com to find just the right one. Nothing is cheap in this hobby..well very little is cheap. I wanted to make sure I dropped my hard earned greenbacks on quality equipment that would deliver exactly what I wanted. I found a few lights, and invested a fair amount of brain time trying to figure out the best option. I ended up with two choices. However, with no experience in GoPro underwater lighting, I ended up at an impass. Which one to choose...which one!? Well, there was only one solution...head to the dive shop and talk to the pros. I love my dive shop...friendly, knowledgeable, and dedicated to helping me. I can say, without exception, that the boys down at the shop have always steered me to exactly what I needed, at exactly the right pricepoint. So...I showed up at the shop one day after work and presented my dilemma. After some conversation, and checking out some dazzling video captured by the dive shop guys on their own underwater adventures, I settled on the Light and Motion Sidekick 600 flood Duo. Nothing but 600 lumens of pure awsomeness...in a small package. Well, it just so happened the shop had this light in stock, because it really is amazing. I whipped out the credit card and left a proud owner of a new toy. I was now ready to head underwater and capture the wonder of critters hiding in dark reef holes, and the blazing colors of reef life. To supplement my new GoPro system, I built a custom camera mount out of the most versatile construction item ever created...PVC water pipe from the local Home Depot. I have to thank the intrepid backyard engineers on Youtube for providing some great guidance for my own custom fab. I am really, really happy with my rig. Well, the dive day came, the gear was loaded, and with the boat in tow, we headed out to the Big Blue for
another adventure...





Our Gear



The dive knife. What else can I really say? Gotta have one. I have enjoyed my share of different styles over the years. A trusted blade is always strapped to my leg, and sometimes my B.C. The ultimate dive accessory...so many handle colors, so many shapes. In fact, you need to have a few on hand so you can wear a different one now and then...just for fun.
