Iain and Brendon ready for the Coelecanth expeditionLast week we undertook our deepest dive yet to 120m. One of our guests Iain visited us with his rebreather and decided to take advantage of the tec diving facilities offered by our sister company BunakenTec. These services include full support for trimix diving on both open circuit and rebreather, and paticipation in deep exploration dives to search for the rare dinosaur fish called the Coelecanth (read previous blog The Coelecanth, Living Fossil in Bunaken).

Brendon is our TEC Manager/Instructor/Diver at BunakenTec, and he organised the 2nd Coelecanth exploration with Iain. He was using his ISC Megaladon electronic rebreather and Iain was using his Inspiration rebreather with the Narced @90 head

After a day of some test dives to 50m, the exploration consisted of 3 deep dives over 3 days:

  • Dive 1 to 90m for 20min with total dive time of 120mins
  • Dive 2 to 100m for 20min with total dive time of 171min
  • Dive 3 to 120m for 17mins with total dive time of 200mins

Iain at 110mFor the full report, please read the BunakeTec blog about the Coelacanth Dive Expedition – July 2012.

What was also very interesting about Iain’s trip was that it showed the range of diving  that this area has to offer for rebreather divers. Before he undertook the expedition, Iain spent 4-5 days doing recreational dives with us around Bunaken, using his rebreather and camera. After the expedition he went to Lembeh and spent another 4-5 days doing recreational dives. Fantastic recreational diving as well as  fantastic TEC diving – what other area gives this range of diving opportunities in one dive holiday?

Sidemount divingSidemount diving is the current craze!! With sidemount, the tanks are mounted on either side of the diver instead of on the back of the diver. It is a popular configuration with advanced cave and techincal divers, as smaller sections of cave and wrecks can be penetrated and tanks can be changed with greater ease.

Its not just for cave and wreck penetration though. As you kit up have you ever thought ‘this hurts my back/ legs’ or ‘geez these are heavy’ or even ‘there has to be a better way’? Sidemount diving is growing in popularity with recreational divers:

  • It offers great trim and buoyancy control making it easier to hover, perfect for photographers and videographers
  • Results in a more streamlined profile, reduces drag and makes finning and moving through the water much easier and more efficient. Get as close to the free-diver experience as possible with Scuba!
  • With no tank on the back its very comfortable. Its also very easy on the back/legs as you have the option of putting the tanks on/off in the water, making the entries and exits to dive sites much easier. This is great for divers with any disabilities.
  • Sidemount equipment and harness are custom fit to each individual, accommodating divers of all shapes and sizes.
  • The harness is very light so easy to travel with, and has an integrated bouyancy device so no more carrying around heavy bcd’s.
  • The harness is used with two tanks, this gives you lots of gas to dive with – again a bonus for photographers.
  • With two tanks and two regulators it is a truly redundant system, so has safety built-in.

The downside? You have 2 SPGs to monitor but this is easy to learn. You also need 2 regs, but isn’t that better than an octopus?

Try-it in Bunaken!
We have just acquired 2 sets of side-mount harnesses and guests are welcome to try a dive with them. If you want to take it further, PADI have just introduced the PADI Sidemount Diver Course and we can offer this course if you want. You need to be an Advanced Open Water Diver with at least 30 logged dives, and on the course you learn sidemount skills in a confined water session and four open water dives. Great fun! Check out this video to find out what its all about.
