Le cours Advanced Open Water, 1ere partie

"Le cours Advanced Open Water, 1ere partie : qu'est-ce que c'est ?
Le Cours Advanced Open Water, 2eme partie : A quoi ca sert ?Lorsque j'enseigne un cours Open Water, je conseille toujours à mes éleves de poursuivre leur formation avec l'Advanced Open Water. Les bénéfices de ce cours sont vraiment tres importants, ainsi que nous les exposerons dans la 2eme partie de ce blog. Voyons pour le moment en quoi consiste cette formation. Le cours se compose de 5 "plongées aventures" specifiques et d'un cours théorique pour chacune d'elles. Deux plongées sont obligatoires : la plongée profonde et la plongée d'orientation sous-marine. Les trois autres plongées sont à choisir parmi une vingtaine, en accord avec votre instructeur bien évidemment, dans la mesure où toutes les plongées ne peuvent pas etre enseignées partout. Par exemple, nous n'enseignons pas la "plongée combinaison étanche" sous les tropiques, pas plus que la "plongée en dérive" dans des zones où il n'y a absolument pas de courant... Read More

Visibility Underwater - what makes it good or bad?

visibility underwater what makes it good or bad ?Davy Jones Locker instructor Dani has written a new article for the DJL Blog. In it she explains what the different factors are that can affect visibility underwater. Even on a tropical island such as Koh Tao visibility can vary. However this doesn't prevent divers  from seeing a great deal of coral and marine life once they are underwater.
"What affects visibility underwater?
So this month has seen significant ups and downs in our underwater visibility on the island. There are still amazing dives but in both great and poor vis. For this reason I have chosen to base my blog on why visibility fluctuates so much Here is a list of the main things that affect visibility under water. Read More

Diving Mask & Its Importance

Diving mask & its' importanceDavy Jones Locker instructor Nik emphasises the importance of diving with a comfortable, well fitting diving mask. All pieces of dive equipment are important in their own specific way, but as your main visual aid while underwater it is well worth making sure you have a piece of equipment that you are happy to use when diving. You may consider pursuing diving as a hobby after completing the PADI Open Water course or Advanced Open Water course. In these circumstances owning your own diving mask is always beneficial while fun diving or pursuing other diving courses.
The importance of a mask when diving
When it comes to diving nothing is more personal then your dive mask. Yes computers are important but they aren't much use if you are unable to even see them. When it comes down to what you want out of a mask the most important part of it is fit and comfort. You can buy the fanciest one with the biggest price tag and it may be completely wrong for your face. Or you might buy the most affordable bottom shelf model and nothing fits better.
Which type of diving mask do I choose?
There are lots of features to consider when making a purchase. Do you want black skirt or clear skirt. Do you prefer it t have a frame or be frameless? Will you choose a wide range of view or a very tunnel vision like view to focus more? Personally I like a black skirt, big range of view with some periferral vision as well to keep a close eye on my students. So next time you go to purchase a mask take your time. It's not as simple as buying one and it fitting perfectly! Ask your dive pro about tips and perks for getting one which properly fits.Read More
