My Scariest Moment Scuba Diving! - Sailing SV Delos Ep. 164
We start to cruise in slowly there's no surge it was fine and then when. A set came through and it just ripped. Us, got. Sucked. In. Sucked. Into the. Cave. See. My, my. My. Sauce. Previously. On Delos, Lisa. And Liz take their first breaths, underwater and, we, continue to be blown away by the beauty of the Sunshine Island. It. Was the day of saying goodbye to ascension. So we landed Maggie for the last time on the pier to do our last provisioning. And everything, else that needed to be done before heading, Southwest, the, boys also offered, Craig and Ellen a helping hand to get their boat out of the water because. They are leaving ascension, on the next day as well. The. Argonaut and, unfortunately. Craig. And Helen are leaving the island because, of all the business that's that's dropped off from their report on being open and they're not being Curtis so we. Have to take their boat out of the water today the. The game plan is to kind of bring it up closer to the dock that we normally get off up a crane, is gonna drop down Craig. Has already got the straps on and. Yeah. We just hook it onto the crane and the, driver is supposed to watch the swells and in between the swells he's gonna take the take, the pressure up on the crane and lifted out the waters swells come down but there's still a swell running look, it down here. So. It's still. Kind, of gnarly, I guess. There's the potential of the boat bashing, up against the wall but I'm pretty sure the crane driver will hopefully, get the arm out long enough to, get it away from the wall when we're down there so. That crane, over. There. Is. The one the big one yeah. That's, gonna pull up pull the boat out and then put it on a flatbed truck, with a cradle how, do you feel, yes, it's. Always nerve-racking, especially for, the crane job it's the same guy who almost got pulled in last time the. Same guy that dropped the pipe all it's still gonna be tricky there with the wind yeah, okay, I'm just gonna go down and shut the lines one last time. All. Is going smoothly except, the crane operator, didn't, extend the arm far enough out so, when we hooked up to the sling it, pulled us right into the wall.
Reeled. Up from the bottom but, it took a while for him to realize what was going on so. I used a fishing float as a makeshift, fender, it. Was a real battle to keep her from getting smashed, on the rocks. Pretty, intense getting, a boat out of the water as well, how. We feelin guys, ready. For a drink ready. For a drink did that go as smoothly as you'd hoped. That. Have been warm Sun between, West so. With the seat conditions, in there are, very. There you can see on a pair very little guys to help yeah, it, wasn't for you guys it wouldn't be impossible today, it. Could've been worse yeah. Scratches. They're better child a header. Nobody. On her right now I'm gonna better, select guys picks it up like a, tiny flag hard work to do and I get back anyway. While that's over laughs, this is over but very sad because then every. Time you will come out with clients, we have to do it again, right, lesson, learned, friends, yachties. On. The. Day chemist it really, works for real cheap too that's. Amazing, that's, pretty good efficient. You. We're. Jogging on jagged, ah jogging, my internet, my, internet everything, is scheduled, as much as it can be we've sent our last messages, Sampson. Said goodbye it's. Not everything our Iridium is working so we're, gonna be in contact with anybody for weeks, jolly, Jolly jolly. One. Store, on. Ascension Island that's actually pretty well stocked the only story. We. Anticipated. The passage, to be about three weeks with no pit stops along the way, Delos, was still stocked up pretty well from Cape Town but, 600, salty sailors, can, eat a lot of fresh fruit and veggies sure, everyone's, really, excited to. Civilians. I feel like everyone's just frantically around the shop trying, to get everything. They can to go oh god, it just feels so good how, are you excited Brady, I'm, really excited this, is the worst idea to, shop when you're hungry. Snacks. Now as, a bean salad, making you hungry yeah I just want to open up a can right now well. Everybody. Want to do it guess on how, much it's gonna be. 30. Pounds. 41. 300. 235. How. About you guys do you want to make a guess. 50. Then 250, drumroll. The total. 225th. 35. Besides, that, 141. Yeah. You're closer, Oh. Good job Alex food I'm. Excited it's gonna be one of the best sales Delos has ever had, you. Have 20 knots right on the beam for like two weeks my, Magnum. Magnum. Closing. Thoughts on Ascension Island as we spend, our last few minutes, ice. Cream is pretty good. Tonight, ear is. Yeah. All in all I mean this. Exclusive. Yeah. I don't know if I'll ever come back I think I will actually, yeah for, some weird reason I think I will come back. Wow. It's. Been awesome and we really spending three. Full. Weeks and. We saw some crazy shit and I'm, very happy we came here ascension. Is like a big magnet and I'm definitely drawn, back to it, easy. Volcanic. Island. I. Like. It the. Island that were touching down on in Brazil has. 600. Waterfalls. On it I don't even know that's possible you, know what that means that means I'm really good at waterfall bikini shots. Chapter. Of ascension draws, to a conclusion, for the devil's crew that. Venture, stretches, out before them, like a ray of sunshine. We. Don't know where we are going well we do because we're going to Brazil and this.
This An estranged by leaving you get like a sense of crazy freedom, it's, like skipping out school then hoping. Not to get caught but. Yeah this. Is awesome really excited so, see, on the other side. I. Know. What I like you. Don't want to go you. Want to stay another, month, okay. Then I'll pick you up okay. I think. Today we're gonna head over to Bird Rock and do. Some more diving, and. If we can manage. It and conditions, are favorable, we're. Gonna stay, the, night and. Today's, Thursday so if we stayed tonight we can't start the passage, on a Friday so. We're gonna actually say two nights. Which. Is cool, because. Definitely. Want to spend some more time in the water here before we go I'm kind of bummed to be leaving this place because, it's. So. Epic and it's gonna, be really hard to get to for the next several years at. Least. But, I'm happy for it because I think it needs to do some healing and, people. Basically have to stay away for that to happen so I think it's good that airports, for every right now actually. The compass just did something really weird Alex, I don't know what it is about this island but there's some, weird magnetic zone, so we. Were just on autopilot back there and, the, boat was cruise along the holla descended in a full left turn, and. Then did a full right turn and then another full left turn and. Then the GPS stopped working at the same time. So, I don't know all these space, and tons or something. And, our iridium doesn't work here and neither does the other books. There's. Some weird electrical. Activity. All. The way to the left now. Right, now. Does, it hurt invisible well I've never seen it the only time it did this is after I fixed. It and put it back in and, I had the wires backwards, and, steering from our right. With. A dysfunctional. Autopilot, we are going to bedrock to, spend two more days diving, before we are heading to. We, have been to bedrock before, but we definitely felt, that we can't use this place without seeing, more of this amazing underwater, world and, listen. Myself, we, were pretty excited to, get back in the water as well for. More beginner, dives. So, we type Delos to avoid and underwater. We, go. You. Always feel a little bit nervous getting in the water with sharks, like what do you think is another what kind of sharks they are are you going into their. Territory the same as if you'd go into, like an. Area with lions or Tigers or, something. Know, that you're not there to harm. It. Didn't take long for us to make friends with one of the many boards bodies this, one in particular was super, keen to stick with us for the entire duck. And. Dive. After dive he would always join back up with us to show us the way chase after mr. Brady and keep us safe from all the shirt. I. Get. Really nervous when they go below the water and, as a rational, diverts the weight through the Sharks of bob'll I know that I never they're experienced, a lot, cheaper it was a whole different world down there by. I, so worried. It's. Always important, to be aware of sharks, and to know that you are in their territory and, not vice versa. The whole crew has learned a lot about their behavior, lately so. We more and more enjoy, diving and swimming with them they. Are amazing creatures. And mostly misunderstood. By us humans. The. Prude that one dive after, another but. Not all of them were children smooth, oh. You. Just wonderful, fifth dive here, at Bird Island and, they've. Been really mellow, and chill and this one is a little bit more hectic the.
Cruise You're on a different side of the island than we've been I've even lost the. Last few times and there's, just. The edge of the island underwater sheer. Drop off lunch. And so it's really gorgeous so. We. Get over just on the other side and we find this narrow, caves. Tunnel, thing started. We. Start to cruise in slowly there's, no surge it was fine and. It, kind of just cuts. Like this going in. So. We, cruisin and then when. A set came through and it just ripped. Us, got. Sucked. In. Sucked. Into the. Cave. So. That was actually the most I've. Ever been underwater but luckily Brian was. Close, enough to me to. Come back into the cave of it and he was able to crab me and, get his feet on the wall kind of pushed me back, out again and then. I managed gonna get around one of the corners but I just holding, the hammer in one handed the other hand just holding. On to the. Side of the, side. Of the wall wherever I could grab and, just. Holding on and getting pulled back so, gnarly. But. Good. Lesson you know to just. Remember to always dive safe and. Not. Push it because things. Can happen so fast, you know diving so peaceful, and and. Chill. Most of the time and then just like that, it's. Not anymore, and you. Know you whack your head or something like that in. Indy, and luckily. Everybody, was safe and not badly, injured. The, bride it's, all fat there's. A cave over there that's a real bad idea to go into you, go in it. We got sucked, into it that. Was scary. I was. Like swimming in behind Alex, and. Then I looked back and she just like turns around and, gets sucked back there's a shit. That. Was the, scariest. To. Say I. Had, the camera so I just holding all into one hands like I. Stuck. Because, what would it happen if you just got so completely in and got trapped you. Got bashed against the law yeah you should've gotten faster on tonight and, tell you and then we're sitting there in my they. Weren't bleeding at first they were like green, and. They were like sitting right over water for, safety. Stop and. I, was like I'm, like bleeding in this shirt. Let's. Not do that you know good, lesson learned today got. Some battle wounds from it. Joshy. It's. All good it could definitely be a where so I'm just really happy about hotel this day now so. Lisa, and Elizabeth is. Going down again for, their second. Beginners. Dives, and. They is gonna go down and, look at some feces are you excited. I have. An. Elena's yeah. This. River has, relax. And breathe. Not. Three days. I'm. Looking, forward to building. I. Would. Do good spitless, not not like a common. Rabbit, and, I have really stood there okay. I'm just nervous before, experiment. So, he's right what, it is. Last. Before. Jesus. First I tried, what. Back. Delos, dive school the, guy round town for shit regulator. Zero. There, you go easy. Thank, God she, got, you, know. By. Taking out a, holiday. I. Honestly. Can't express my feelings, being, able to dive just for the second time in my entire, life and such a remote, place was, purely, overwhelming. It's, the rocks and then Brian just held my hand and. He didn't let go for the entire duration is. How man. And, then we just saw shark and then these, was next to me and I just grabbed Lisa's, hands has like, will. Hold your hands. There. Are no words to express, my gratitude to. The whole crew for giving listen me the opportunity. To learn and to experience, underwater. Life. Divers. Are. You being honest. All the rugged. I admit. II cried several, times in the water like missus, hook. You got me you got. Got the addiction. Hey. Funny, except. To breathe and water again today, hey.
Buddy. Morning. Everyone, Oh. Oh. Breathes. Underwater huh, let's, do it. How, are you today. You're. In storm last night yo, was, coming down I had, a good night's sleep. Although the slams back their antenna no I think it slammed, so much that our whole bed shakes yeah I was thinking that yeah, what is that bruh. Then power went or. The. Thing could be full of bird feathers. Instead. Of going diving straight away there was solid Makabe, mission needed. Start. The generator this. Watching. Failed. And, the alarm it gave was raw water and alarm which means it's probably the impeller and. That sucks because it's a second, one that's happened wait, a minute it's the second, time this happened, hmm. This, sounds familiar to me but let's watch a little bit more nothing. Only has a hundred. And. Seventeen, hours on it and they're supposed to last like way way away along. I'm, just gonna change it again we only have one box so. I'm, motivated, to fix it. Just. Scrambled. Up in there it's facts man I don't, know why he would do that but, just disintegrated. Yeah you, sleepy, little pieces of a hen's will break off it's. Kind of be a problem, with salt, water getting put into that right now. We gotta count all the pieces count. All the pieces didn't. Me do this before, none. Can you remember now because. If. Any these pieces are left and the engine then they block up the cooling circuit, like the heat exchanger, the. Same thing happened after 20, hours of generator, running it. Doesn't make any sense, but, remember didn't we count along least the last time last time we did it in the NBA we. Leave everything out of them and I found all the pieces right and we laid them out my County. I'm. Pretty sure I remember doing that yeah, I. Went. Down I was like okay there's one more. After. 20 hours of running for some reason look at this that's. The impeller I don't. Know if you can see it but there's one two. Three four. Five. Blades, missing, try and clean those out. One. Two. Three. There's. Four I, hope, that's all of them I. Don't. See any others and that. Was the little hint we gave you guys only a few weeks ago that, the finding, the blades game wasn't over yet. Welcome. To, the finale in. Ascension. Brainy, saw another piece I don't know if you can see it but it's hidden, in. Way in there. Yes. Maybe. Maybe. I missed that one the first time this happened I see. Which, would cause this to happen. And mediate that other so, I think we'll just put, our.
Last, Intolerant, and, hope, that it makes us to Brazil, and. For all the people out there who might have thought that Brian installed the impeller wrong the last time because, some blades were bent in the wrong direction here. Is how it works. And if you go the other way it just sort of changes right. That's. About it, yeah. It's. All back together. They're. Really, hot I. Like when you're sweaty in the menu. Look at that belly. Banks. Often, leave your head on inside the box oh my, god. Yeah. Okay, get at O'Brien you your friend Iman. Fuck. It. Bryan. Grab it with the power. For. Brady's of birdperson. You. Gonna be reading that he's. A bit. Get. A free let it free let it free you got him. Hi. Web, birdie. Yeah. Let's, just let him yeah, this is Lucic, this don't, blasting, Brian, glass. Him, drive. Was. Very gentle thank you for. Asking the bird I, don't. Think okay I'm sure he, was. I think, they pretend, to be dead at that point oh yeah. What's. Going on. So. Accidentally. Got boiling. Hot water over and I, went. To fill up my water bottle. At the same time I was pouring hot water in, the sink and we've. Shared the sink many times but then there a wave. Hit the back of the boat and. Strapped. And. The water went over my hand and. Really. Fucking, hurts right now yeah I've, got fire. All. In here it. Just it just hurts, to do that just. To touch my skin you. Know both of our hands are inured you know it's Easter's. Don't, touch me. I'm, about to cream for the short-term treatment of wounds and minor burns. Mm-hmm. Does, it feel better no. Hasn't, done anything I feel, like it's. Still fucking. Pain. After. Such a hectic morning it was finally, time to calm, down and, to, be underwater. And. Then, at the end of our last dive we saw something pretty unique this. Determined, little turtle was swimming in the strong current with just three flippers, we. Had heard we might see him around here and it was a pretty sweet way to end our time. It's. Amazing, yeah why so. Good. For the best I've ever had so. Chill. You. Showed me I saw, a strip cleaning, out at you about the.
Your Gun I guess open, his mouth hold. On his head. Judith. From. Down below we, headed straight into the sky to, explore per drop one last time from the air. I just. Wanted to talk about, this. Spot and how incredibly. Unique it is it just feels so wow in, a way you know you have this massive. Rock, with thousands. Of birds that is like going crazy, above. Us. Unspoiled. Part of the world for sure a little gem it's, a really, unique spot and I feel super, lucky that we've been able to spend as, much, time here as we have. I would. Definitely, say that this is one of the most amazing dive, spots I've ever been to we can dive from the boat which is a huge, thing as well we don't have to pack everything in Maggi and it's just amazing, and then when, you drop in the, water it's, actually really good visibility and, it's just so. Many trevallies. And. Sharks. Cruising, around in the distance. And. Turtles. And, small, fish and macro. Stuff and. It's just been really sunny, today and beautiful, and I'm really happy. So. That, was wonderful I think to, mind-blowing, days at Bird Rock and a, pretty, decent way to finish. Off the essential, experience, I'd say but. Now. It's finally time to get ready to set sail. Next. Step on Delos we set sail from Ascension on our 2,300. Nautical mile Passage to Brazil and some. Issues with the autopilot lead us to fall in love with hand steering to the Southern Cross really. Afford to just steer directive. Other stars. Like, it. Do. We need me tuna noodles I don't, like the number five. This. Is quite heavy Lisa, I should I carry it like this. Some. Powerful thighs you've got on your Casa. Between. A woman's legs I'll, say and the. Most important, part to remember here. On Bird Island is when you're looking up close. Your mouth, otherwise. You the chances, are pretty high that you're getting bird. Poop in. Your mouth and nobody. Else got time for that oh. That. Was your mouth oh. I. See it's a big piece of shit let. Me see you again. Big. Piece of poop. Are you, trying. To find the hole in the net, you. See if I were. Ever lactate, wherever. Loving. Than half those they, don't. Yeah. What. Are you grooming, blue. Barbershop. A. Walrus. Lastly. For. The kitchen scissors I like it. You.
