The Quest to Dive All of the Wrecks in the Northwest

In the spirit of adventure my dive buddy and I picked up a first edition copy of “Northwest Wreck Dives” by Scott Boyd and Jeff Carr. It is an excellent resource for researching, locating, and planning for diving most of the wrecks in Washington State and the surrounding area. It has inspired us to try and dive every single wreck in the book and to try and find more wrecks that haven’t yet been found. As we embark on this journey we will try to keep this site up-to-date with posts, reports, media, and we will also create a map of the sites that we have been to.

If anyone has any suggestions about which wreck to dive next or any tips about a potential undiscovered wreck or if you feel like joining us please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Until next time, happy diving!

Just Chilling

As you have probably noticed we have decided to start reworking the layout of the site.  We have already restructured the homepage to only display our posts and no external ones.  You can still view external posts in the Dive News section.  We will also be adding new photos and content under the resources tab that will include gear reviews and other useful information that our club uses before any dive.  While dogging through photos I found this one of a Sea Turtle on the YO-257 off of Hawaii.  I only did some minimal editing on this using Picasa and yes, it was shot on a Go Pro Hero 3+.

Happy Diving!

Sea Turtle on the YO-257!

Happy Veterans Day!

DiveYeti would like to take a moment to celebrate all of the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines of the United States who help defend and protect us all over the world.  In honor of you, here is a short clip of the American Flag blowing in the current at 100′ on the YO-257 off the coast of Oahu.

On the final day of our June 2014 Key Largo trip we we able to dive the USCGC Duane under nearly ideal conditions (i.e. NO current and excellent visibility).  We encountered nearly all the creatures of this vessel: Goliath Grouper, Stingray, Moray Eel, Sea Turtle, and tons of smaller critters.  Here are the best of the videos that I took:
