So you’ve booked a tech diving course. Whether it’s a few days away, weeks or months, naturally this is a time to get excited – and it’s a time to start preparing for that course.
It doesn’t make a difference if this is your first ever time doing any technical diving or if you’ve tried twinsets and sidemount before, there are a few things you can do right now to make sure you get the most out of your time with your instructor.
This weeks ‘dive against debris’ at our adopted dive site Muka Kampung in front of the Bunaken village was very successful. 10 guests and 7 staff joined in to collect in total 18 kg of debris. The strangest piece of debris was a bike tyre. It was a beautiful day and most of us went snorkeling as most of the debris is found shallow on top of the reef or on the surface. Everybody had a lot of fun drifting on a mild current above this beautiful dive site with amazing corals.
Compared to the last ‘dive against debris’ we collected two trash bags less but heavier items instead.
After diving for 6 years and getting myself certified as a Rescue Diver in Mar 2016, I reckon it’s time to upgrade my skills and experience in diving and take my diving to the next level: Dive Master. I’ve never really had the time to do this before, so now that I’ve made my office job history, it make sense to start the next chapter of my life adventure with getting my Dive Master certification.
