A beautiful day of diving at Desert Tortoise, Lake Pleasant, united by several shops around the valley, to participate in the PADI First Annual Woman’s Dive Day. A big THANK YOU to Destination Scuba, East Valley Family Scuba, No Limits Scuba, Toadfish Divers, and Ultimate Dive and Travel Scuba, for coming together and mingling with other divers. Lots of stories were told, and many new friendships were made.
Lots of activities happened on this day. Several people completed their Open Water certifications, others completed their Advanced Open Water certification, some were working on either their Divemaster or Assistant Instructor, and a Rescue Class was also taking place. A group of other divers also participated in a lake clean-up activity.
The women took charge and lead dives. The temperature on the surface was about 90 degrees until noon. The water temperature was 82 degrees until you reached the first thermal cline at 30 feet. People saw some big catfish, many blue gills, bass (large and small) and big carp. The visibility was about 15 feet.
After the dives, we gathered around, told more stories and had some delicious food.
It was great to see all the people and shops working together for all to have a good time. Mark your calendar for next year, and let’s do it again.
