Ron Peters's insight:

I have updated my "expedition" on the Open Explorer website. But timing and success depends on how soon I can acquire an OpenROV kit.

OpenROV will be "GIVING AWAY 5 OpenROV KITS* to the expeditions that gather the most amount of followers on OpenExplorer over the coming month (ending 12pm PST on 9/19). "

 

Please support my expedition by visiting the www.openexplorer.com website and "following" my Seawolf Diving USA expedition as posted on the OpenExplorer page.

Divers Alert Network, King Triggerfish Attacks, Wounds Diver

A large triggerfish attacked a diver, hitting him in the head and causing a large wound on the scalp.
Ron Peters's insight:

Risk is an innate aspect of Diving.  The environment into which we (divers) choose to immerse ourselves is largely hostile and foreign to our survival.  We cannot breathe water and our psychology and behavior are attuned to terrestrial life. 

Managing the risks of diving is, in large part how we can survive incursions into the aquatic realm.  We have devised technique and technology that allow us to visit the underwater world for extended periods of time and to function with increasing ease.  

Through constant and repeated visits we are even starting to develop an understanding of the ecology, lifestyles and behavior of our watery friends. 

Although with the ever improving technology and a continuously growing body of knowledge about the many aspects of diving, we have managed to make our underwater activity relatively safe, there are still risks which we have yet to learn to effectively manage.  

We can learn things like: don’t feed the fish, don’t pet the eel,  don’t ride the shark, and we can make generalizations about sea critters and how they will act to our presence, but we may never predict the actions of the individual animal with 100% accuracy and 100% of the time (much like humans).  

What we can do is try our best to manage and mitigate the risks, thereby making our diving activity as safe as possible.  After doing all that we can, we must make the conscious decision to accept what risks remain as part of the game (or not).

Diving (like most activities) is a game of percentages.  If we do everything possible to tilt the odds in our favor and to reduce as many risk factors as possible, then the chances of a safe successful dive are greater.  Yet there is still, and always, the slim chance that something will go “not at all as expected…”

The attached story (From Divers Alert Network) illustrated one of the risk factors of diving that we may never completely eliminate.  That factor being unexpected fishy behavior.  

Dive Safe My Friends… and Stay Wet.

Jules' Distinctive Specialy Certifications

Jules' Distinctive Specialy Certifications | Undersea Exploration | Scoop.it
PADI Specialities at Jules' Undersea Lodge, the world's only underwater hotel, located at Key Largo Undersea Park in Key Largo, Florida.
Ron Peters's insight:

You’ve heard about Underwater Habitats and Laboratories. You have probably followed the exploits of the NASA NEEMO team during their training and space simulation missions in the Aquarius Undersea Habitat located near Ley Largo Florida. You may even be aware of the upcoming 72 day (world record) undersea mission “Classroom Under the Sea” involving the folks from Roane State College and Marine Resourced Development Foundation (MRDF) which will be conducted at Jules’ Undersea Lodge and MarineLab.


So now you’re curious. You want to know how they do this. What technology is involved? Who can do this? What’s it all about? You may even want to know how You can do it, right?

 

First you must know that there are only three actual Undersea Habitats that are currently active. There is the “Aquarius” which is owned by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and currently operated by Florida International University (FIU).

 

The other two active Undersea Habitats are also located at Key Largo, Florida and are operated by MRDF and they are the Jules’ Undersea Lodge and MarineLab.

 

All three facilities are actively engaged in undersea research and education, and all three have been used by NASA as Space Analog Training Platforms.

 

More importantly, the two MRDF facilities (Jules’ & MarineLab) are making their habitats available for private individuals so that You Too can learn what it’s all about, and You Too can experience living & working under the sea as an “Aquanaut.”

Divers recover mystery anchor off Ledgewood, Vancouver link possible - South Whidbey Record

Divers recover mystery anchor off Ledgewood, Vancouver link possible - South Whidbey Record | Undersea Exploration | Scoop.it
First they cheered, then they wept.

The long-submerged anchor believed connected with Captain George Vancouver and his famed exploration of the Pacific Northwest more than 200 years ago touched down on the deck of a barge off Ledgewood late Monday. It was a moment of joy, but also one of closure, as it marked the end of six years of research, toil and obsession.

“I’m pretty overcome right now,” said a teary-eyed Scott Grimm, moments after the anchor was recovered. “It’s been a long time.”
