I took today the course PADI ENRICHED AIR DIVER certification, took the exam and passed it (of course). Thanks to Harry Bakker of Aquarius Diving Constanta. I still have a headache after 7 h of course ! Unfortunately, testing how a dive with EANx feels like will have to wait. The weather in Constanta is very, very bad for this time of year and the waves and low temperatures (20 grad C) don’t allow us to enter in the water.

I made 3 dives with Aquarius Diving Centre Constanta at the Cazino Constanta. The entry in the water was difficult because we had to go through the stones on the shore.

Dive 1 (Red): 4KG x 2 side lead, 4KG belt lead Dive 2 (Blue): 4KG x 2 side lead, 3 KG belt lead Dive 3 (Black): 4 KG x 2 side lead, 3 KG belt lead 12 L Airtank, 18 KG weight of the airtank With my own equipment. Visibility 3-5 m In general, the visibility was really astonishing for the Black Sea. We could see very well even small crabs. In Dive 3 we visited the historical harbor from the times of the romans. The walls of the harbor were about 500 m away from where it is now and they were about 2 m high. They are now 5 m under water. The good part is that with every dive I remained longer and longer in the water with the same 12L tank. Longest dive was number 3 with 78 minutes. Seen: Sea horse Huge jellyfish Many smaller jellyfishes Fluorescent jellyfishes Crabs Sea needle Shrimps (on the rocks) And here are the photos (courtesy of Aquarius Diving):
