It's a muddy puddle. If you want a quarry go to capers instead, IMO.

Would recommend a trip to loch fyne, I am sure boatman would be able to sort kit lending and a shallow and scenic dive which will be a hell of a lot more enjoyable.

The blue lagoon was lovely and clear when I went.

I was there in winter, maybe rain and wind had stirred it up.

This is due to the dry air put in the cylinder to stop it from rusting inside, I always suck like I'm sucking on a straw when my mouth is dry, this way I suck in the moisture left on my reg.

Yeah it's common to get cotton mouth. I remember it being vividly unpleasant the first dive I did (on holiday) but not too much of a problem since.

You can always take reg out and have a bit of a swill round... probably not a good idea in quarries near ponte though

I never really noticed or bothered by dry mouth, but the snorkel when learning wasnt pleasant. Not keen on the taste of rubber from it.

Haven't posted for a while, but saw this thread.

I dive fair regularly (except now, because it's winter in NZ!). Am finally going to crack and buy a dry suit as right now the water is about 8 degrees which kills me! Also do a lot of hunting/gathering here in NZ - fresh scallops and crayfish which is awesome and a completely different kind of diving.

Have master scuba diver cert + EAN
