How could i forget that?! i love seals..
actually it would be cool to be able to compare to the red sea.. when did you go?
i have a question.. a dumb one but thats ok cuz im still new here.. is a total 14mm (two 7mm pieces) going to suffice the water there that time of year? i supoze i will getting cold due to also being nervous...
i did a little homework here and found the mossman clip you posted in 2003.. very cool! esp. the octopus..

that wet suit shoudl be fine. my first dives in nanaimo were with a bare 7+7

Red Sea? did 20 dives a year there from 1996 - 2003. all on the Arabian Coast @ yanbu or off Jeddah.

Greg Mossfeldt has some amazing vids. lots more on his site :D

Just thought I'd update on this thread...
Went to Nanaimo and had a blast. It was cold and rainy the whole time! Well the sun peeked out once, for 10 minutes! Had on a 6.5 mm two piece as well as spandex leggings and nylons for sleeves underneath. We didn't get to dive Snake Island :( :( :( BUT I Promise I will next time I go there (this summer lol) other than that, we saw tonnes of stuff (even a little octopus) and had a great time diving.
Most of the divers there wanted to know more about our "breath-hold diving", which surprised me, I thought most of them would be familiar with that stuff. Well, now that we have been aquainted, we are looking forward to more trips with the locals, with or without tanks. :)
Sorry I dont have any pics of me with my gear on, however, someone caught me showing off my nylons!

I'll be heading down to the island to dive Nanaimo in late august. if you're keen I'm always looking for a buddy. Snake Island is a MUST when i go there. sounds liek you had a good time, glad to hear it. (looks like you stayed at the Buc?)

the nylons are DEAD SEXY! (Fat Bastard voice :D )

LOL!!!

Yeah they were a hit! Good eye, too.. we had room 203 at the Bucc and it was great (though I overheated the dryer trying to warm up my gloves). Nice little spot there, close to Muddy Waters Pub(which was AWESOME), even though we didn't get to see much else due to the weather. I'd go again in a heartbeat.
