The first dive near Key Largo on our club trip was the Spiegel Grove. This was the first and only dive I did on double tanks, which meant we had a good long dive and I felt more comfortable on the long swim throughs. Here’s a video of the most interesting one, according to our charter operator, Conch Republic. This video covers most of the swim through, although it took the first 20 feet or so to get the camera sorted out for video.

A minor source of embarrassment was forgetting to set my computer to Nitrox until 16 minutes into the dive as you can see in the log. This caused it to calculate longer decompression than was required but I didn’t mind hanging out on the line. Rich wondered what the hell I was doing as he had little or no obligation whatsoever. It was definitely less of an issue than diving a Nitrox profile on air.
