Dive confidently!

Welcome new divers! Congratulations on getting certified! Now what do you do?

Sure you can do like so many do – like I did – book that first dive trip or dive boat excursion and hope for the best. Why leave it to chance though? Why worry about the hundred things that they didn’t teach you in class?

I’ve been diving for more than 10 years. In all that time I’ve made every mistake that a diver can make and survive.

  • I’ve wasted money buying the wrong gear
  • I’ve done the dumb things on dive boats because I didn’t know the proper etiquette
  • I’ve booked trips without knowing anything about the destination or operator
  • …and so many MANY more mistakes ranging from embarrassing to down right stupid

Mistakes make diving a lot less fun. I know, I’ve made enough of them. But you don’t have to, you can learn from my mistakes!

Let me share with you the secrets of scuba diving that it usually takes new divers years to discover.

I don’t sell gear
I don’t sell travel
I don’t sell your information

My one goal is to help you love scuba diving as much as I do!
