I’ve always been an adventurous person – I’ve travelled the world with my child, jumped out of an airplane, attempted (and failed) skiing, explored remote areas, started a charity, tried internet dating but none have made me feel as brave and free as SCUBA diving. Can you hear it – “They may take our lives, but never take our freedom” (Braveheart film, 1995) – okay maybe that’s a bit dramatic but I did find freedom. My path to SCUBA diving was not straightforward – I did an ocean …read more here!
Without a doubt the Stress & Rescue Course has been my favourite course to date. As with most scuba training there is a theory and practical component to this course. The theory outlines various scenarios for preparedness for diving emergencies; whilst the practical introduces these scenarios into your diving skills. Scenarios include the most common dive emergencies such as out of air situations, cramps, diver distress, decompression illness and missing divers, with consideration for both …read more here!
Dive Sensibly: You know the ones I’m talking about…the ’I’ve dived deeper, longer, ridden a great white and been adopted by orcas’ sort. They’ve done everything and most importantly they’ve done it better, faster, deeper than anyone one else, and they make sure everyone knows it. Whilst knowledge, confidence and experience are important in the water, ego and diving don’t mix well. Egos engender complacency and often result in avoidable incidents. An example: during a sail …read more here!

When I first came to Dahab in Egypt I was planning to stay for three months just to Freedive. My goal was to reach 20 meters! What I did not know at that time was that I would leave as a qualified Level 2 Freediving Instructor diving deeper than 40 meters with fins. I completed the so called “zero to hero” program which basically forms a Freediving Instructor out of a more or less complete beginner. One might say “only 3 months? How can you get enough experience, knowledge and skills in just …read more here!
