Team Teaching & Coaching

Team teaching is a core tenant of who we are.  Each approach has value and tailoring the teaching format to each diver's needs is important.  As a group of professionals, we value each other's input and try to include as much insight to each training session, coaching opportunity, adventure or expedition.


Taking people on adventures and learning about new places is important to us.  We also do not move on after teaching a course, our friendship and coaching are available for the long term.  The most rewarding days are still to come, so come join us, tell your friends and let us know what you want to do.


Courses are taught in small numbers with low in water ratios, ALWAYS.  Personalized training is more fun for everyone and required for younger divers or specialized activities.  Continuing the skill set is important.  We offer dive leadership, coaching, guiding and buddy for a day services.  Sherpa service is not out of the question when appropriate.  Dive smarter, not harder....maybe deeper or farther, and always get home to dinner safely.
