Dive during the daytime
So you’re jonesin’ to get wet. It’s so hot and all you can think about getting in the water below the thermocline to cool off (JoAnn at Devil’s Lake!). BUT you have one of those non-traditional jobs that has you working weekends and nights when most of our fun and adventure dives take place.
No worries. There are a number of us on the dive team that are in the same boat. As my “day job” as a musician calls for work to start at 4 or 5 in the afternoon and go into the late night, I have a flexible schedule during the bright sunny weekday day time to do some diving. Just yesterday, Andy (required to take a weekday day off) and I were at John C McKenna in Shorewood Hills exploring those reaches that we don’t usually get to explore with a Tuesday night dive or class. What did we find? – an anchor (not attached to a boat), cool terrain, too many weeds (at times) and a chunk of awning/siding/metal. It was a great time. We were in the water at 10:30 am and home by 1 pm.
We don’t post most of those daytime dives on the calendar on the web site but will post instant weekday outings on our facebook page. We also have a short list of divers who can do weekday day time dives who email each other when someone wants to get wet.
If you are coming to the area and want to dive during the weekday, send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) before you get here and most likely we can work something out for you. Be it in the local lakes or a short 1 or 2 hour drive.
Weekday, day time diving – you bet. Let’s get wet!
