After being out of the water for about an hour and ten minutes, I told the boys that it was time to go do more scuba. They ran back up for a couple more trips down the Slip-N-Slide, then went back to the gear, geared up and headed for the water.

With all of the skills completed, this was a fun dive. We dropped down, got on the ropes and started following the course. I had to tell the students not to pull on the ropes a few times. We worked our way down to the platform. I took pictures while everyone sat and stood on the platform. We worked our way from there to the boats.

Along the way to the boats, we found the PVC diamonds and swam through them. I went through all three without touching. I turned to take some pictures. The first diver (Brandon) made it through behind me. After that, everyone started hitting the diamonds, turning them sideways, getting their gear hung up in them, etc. It was pretty funny.

After we made it back to the second boat, a couple of the students notified me that they were down to 1,000 PSI. I signaled OK and we slowly started our return trip. We found the bicycle and a couple of other floaty things along the way. We took our time and enjoyed the sites along the way. One of the students notified me that he was now at 500 PSI. I showed him my watch that indicated that we were in just 15 ft. of water. I pointed out that you could see the surface from where we were. He signaled OK. We got up to about 5 ft. of water and exited.

This turned out to be a pretty nice/fun dive! Almost 40 min. Not bad for their first time in the water!
