Have you tried Sidemount diving? As our guest Simon discovered this week, sidemount diving is not just for serious technical divers (although they love it, too). Benefits include more comfort in the water, better buoyancy control, improved streamlining, and additional safety thanks to having a redundant air supply and a completely separate regulator.
Robyn and Scott have been staying with us for a while, and were gently encouraged to discover what technical diving has to offer.
Robyn and Scott are going to take over the management of our sister resort at Lembeh Straits, but whilst all the paperwork is being taken care of, they are taking advantage of the local diving and familiarising themselves with the Two Fish operation: including Tech diving at Bunaken.
This week in tec… Carmelo from Switzerland has spent so long with us now doing his PADI Divemaster course that we needed to find other ways to keep him busy. So after a couple of try dives on Sidemount and Twinsets he took the plunge and started the TDI Advanced Nitrox and Decompression Procedures courses.
This week in tech… The past couple of weeks we have been giving our guides a familiarisation on sidemount tech diving and twinset configurations. The guys like to play on something different from time to time and it also makes them appreciate that sometimes it takes a little bit longer to get ready.
This week in Tec .. it has been a bit quieter after the holidays which of course means that we offered a Tech try dive in the pool to the resort guests! It being a bit chilly only our hardy Australian guests, Tarn and Cara from Melbourne gave it a go, and I can think of no better indication that they liked the configuration other than the first words out of Tarn’s mouth, “How much is one of these?”
