Dive Training

Building comfort in the water is key to becoming a better diver. It leads to improved air consumption, improved ability to problem solve underwater, less anxiety and a lower risk of panic, which can lead to accidents....
In August of this year, a group of veterans touched down on balmy Bonaire: their mission to absorb the camaraderie, excitement, and therapy of scuba diving. Wounded in their time of service, these men and women joined the Handicapped Scuba Diving Alliance (HSDA) of New Jersey for a weeklong adventure in one of scuba diving’s crown jewels: an aquatic paradise disconnected from the noise and grind of contemporary life. Bonded by a common goal, they and their allies in the HSDA sought solace and fellowship with themselves, and with their generous hosts; and they returned home forever changed by the experience.

The world of scuba diving is inviting and expansive: while enveloped within the blue, scuba divers enjoy a realm unlike any other: a zone of serenity and calm that sweeps away worries and emboldens its practitioners. For disabled divers, adaptive divers, this world opens avenues previously unavailable: while under the waves, adaptive divers experience the freedom of weightlessness, and a heightened determination augmented by supportive buddies. Managing adaptive diving programs is no small feat, and requires students and instructors to go beyond their limitations. As scuba diving has evolved over the decades, training agencies, dive centers, non-profits, and individuals have joined together for this noble mission. Such is Diveheart: one of the most prolific adaptive diving organizations since 2001.

The warm, red-brown water faded to black as the two divers descended feet-first toward the river bed. Armed with screwdrivers, mesh bags and a single flashlight each, the women descended hand- in-hand in hopes of ending up...

DAN – Dive Another Day

After spending a small fortune booking a trip, looking forward to it for an entire year and then traveling halfway around the world to a dream destination, forgoing one of your dives is probably the last thing...
Last month I took a vacation dive trip to Canada. Specifically the St Lawrence River area in Brockville, Ontario. The original plan was to join my Tech Instructor Trainer Steve Lewis and be an extra set of...
Humans have relied on fish for sustenance for thousands of years, turning the throwing of a spear into a commercial, sporting and recreational industry. A huge percentage of the world's population still depends on fishing, and a great way to keep fish populations abundant is to fish sustainably. One of the most rewarding ways to do so is to revert to the ways of our ancestors by spearfishing or harvesting by hand.
So here we are at the backdoor of Roger’s air fill station. He carries a lot more here than just his air fill: tanks, scuba gear, and his friends’ gear as well. It gives you an idea of the complexity. Here’s the problem: I mentioned earlier this is an ACFM compressor: you hook up your 80 cubic-foot tank and roughly 10 to 15 minutes later, one tank is full. That won’t work for us. We need four or five tanks filled at once. How do you do that? You obviously hook up more hoses.
