Real People, Real Diving
Most people that want to dive, have a simple goal in mind: To achieve the status of Open Water Diver. But what does that mean? Being an Open Water Divers in (theory) means you can plan and venture with your (equality of higher qualified) buddy into the beautiful underwater world and explore many places, wherever that place is; Dubai, Fujairah, The Red Sea or Maldives to name a few. But ask yourself this question? Are you properly trained to do these dives yourself? Do you have all the equipment, knowledge, skills, and confidence required to undertake this?
Unfortunately, often this is not the case
Which is really a shame, certainly if you already paid so much money for your initial training!
We believe that everyone, with their buddy, should be confident and skilled to perform these dives autonomously and have a good understanding on what diving really is all about. Swimming behind a Dive Master is not the goal in our training. Our goal is to make you a competent diver, with the confidence of diving everywhere in the world.
Does that mean we think diving with a Dive Guide or Dive Master is not a good idea?
On the contrary! Dive Guides (and Dive Masters) often know the dive sites better than anyone else, meaning they know where the currents are or how to find that elusive fish, turtle or shark. They can often show us “The Good Stuff” and guide us over a wreck or reef. Dive Guides and Dive Masters however, should not be there to manage an Open Water certified diver because they are not capable.
This is why proper training is so important
Understanding how to be a competent Open Water Diver, will greatly improve your safety and fun underwater. We focus on comprehensive training and skill development to make sure your buoyancy is good, and that skills that normally get rushed to sign off that certification, are done properly. Instead of actively thinking about clearing your mask – Everyone hates that - it should be a passive skill, where confidence and practice make things easy and fun.
