"No Performance Requirement in SCUBA Diving is more poorly defined or less often achieved than....Buoyancy Control!"
SO....you don't plan to "EVER" go cave diving?
You'll still be nothing less than a diver with "cave diver worthy" Fundamental SKILLS.

"HERE'S WHAT'S  UNIQUE & SPECIAL ABOUT OUR SKILLS WORKSHOPS!"

WE MEET YOU IN COZUMEL
WE SUPPLY THE MENTORING & COACHING
OUR MEXICAN COLLEAGUES PROVIDE THE INFRASTRUCTURE

SCUBA Skills
IT'S A  FUNDAMENTALS WORKSHOP....
IT'S AN ABOVE AVERAGE DIVE TRIP....
IT'S BOTH
"IT'S FUN!"
OUR BUOYANCY SKILLS AND FROG KICK WORKSHOP TAKES PLACE OVER 7 DAYS
13 dives in six days of diving in a world class destination. "COZUMEL DIVES"....that's right, it's a Cozumel Dive Trip....but one where you ,actually, learn something! That's about 6 times as many dives as most buoyancy clinics. There will be plenty of surface interval  devoted to sharing information.
COMPARE THAT TO:
a lecture or reading from an, agency authored outline, followed by two dives in a pool or open water with an instructor who looks nothing like the diver that you want to be.

OUR BUOYANCY WORKSHOP IS ABOUT CAMARADERIE NOT ABOUT COMPETITION
We don't care who is "THE BEST" as long as EVERYONE GETS BETTER! We think your reward should be real confidence in your skills rather than holding a certification that does not reflect or represent your ability.
COMPARE THAT TO:
an abreviated program, from a name brand agency, where everyone finishes with little more than a plastic card after two dives with an instructor who "probably" exhibits substandard fundamental skills..

WE AREN'T ASHAMED OF OUR BUOYANCY SKILLS  OR AFRAID TO LET YOU SEE US DIVE
Sample our videos and see the exact instructors that we expect you to imitate.
COMPARE THAT TO:
chat room rhetoric, where talk is cheap and to programs where franchised instructors  don't even resemble the divers in the official agency movies. And the official agency movies feature Course Directors & Master Instructors who scull, demonstrate vertical postures, and wear gloves on tropical dives. AND they have hose halos and more than a few "danglies". Snorkels, however, are in place....but having a snorkel doesn't define or identify a "good diver".

WE DON'T HAVE TO DRESS UP LIKE TECH DIVERS OR USE TECH DIVING IMAGES 
We mentor FROG KICK & BUOYANCY SKILLS. Those are skills that tech divers need. We like BP&W but don't require that you like it. Our goal is to help you be nothing less than a diver with "tech diver worthy" fundamental skills.
COMPARE THAT TO:
the expense of taking a tech diver course in order to acquire better basics.  Or even worse;  paying big dollars  for a  "pseudo"  tech diving course & certification that was achieved while kneeling on the bottom in double tanks and a stage bottle.. Or perhaps you're thinking about taking a sidemount course...."that's the latest fad" that places the cart too far in front of the horse. Another "EGO Trip" for divers who haven't even mastered the basics of buoyancy control...."ANOTHER JOKE!"

WE USE VIDEO IMAGES AS A TOOL
We aren't afraid to show you video of ourselves in order to promote our workshops and we will video two of the later workshop dives to provide both incentive for you to excel and validation of your achievements.
COMPARE THAT TO:
instructors and programs who are bashful about appearing in moving pictures because of sculling or other shortcomings but are not bashful about taking money for  awarding buoyancy specialty certifications.

WE PUT FUNDAMENTAL BUOYANCY CONTROL TRAINING IN PERSPECTIVE
We identify the limits of equipment in an equipment dominated sport and we think that a diving adventure in Cozumel is the perfect context for learning superior buoyancy control skills. We believe that "less is more"....less emphasis on expensive equipment and more emphasis on motor skills and understanding nature's rules.
COMPARE THAT TO:
most store sponsored dive travel where the participants learn nothing new about diving because  the trip leader surrenders control to the host facility.
REMEDIAL:
 means the medicine to cure what's wrong with your FUNDAMENTAL DIVE SKILLS....we are REMEDIAL!
REFRESHER:
 means to update and re-visit the skills that you've  already learned....this is not a REFRESHER COURSE!
"WHAT WE DON'T DO......IS WHAT DISTINGUISHES US FROM ALMOST EVERY OTHER SCUBA DIVER."
We "NEVER" scull with our hands, we have no DANGLIES & HOSE HALOS and we "almost never" flutter kick!

"SCULLING IS THE  THE HALLMARK OF A SUBSTANDARD DIVER!"

HERE'S WHAT WE LOOK LIKE UNDERWATER
....please contact us with your questions and comments.

"STOP SCULLING!"
"LEARN TO FROG KICK!"
"BE THAT DIVER!"

"IF" you are wondering why anyone would mentor  "only" Buoyancy Control Skills....

the answer is easy:
A) Buoyancy Control is what we do best....while "almost" everyone else does not!
B) The market is obvious...."almost" every diver & their instructors suck at buoyancy skills!

Most divers refuse to admit that their skills are substandard. But there are so many divers and even instructors in need of this remedial  training that we couldn't help all of them  if "only" one percent were to have an epiphany. "That's some market!"

"IF" you are wondering why nobody else  offers to mentor "only" Buoyancy Control....

the answer is easy:
A) Others don't dare to  claim that level of buoyancy skills....because they know they will have no place to hide.
B) "Talking the talk" and tap dancing doesn't work if the promise is real skills! That only works if the promise is c-cards.

IF....all you want is a Buoyancy Specialist C-CARD....go with the big agencies....you won't learn fundamental skills....BUT you'll fit right into the status quo!  If you don't think that the "Status Quo" has let you down or sold you short, just continue down that path!
LEARNING to be a "SCUBA CUSTOMER"....& a "CASH COW"!

WE MENTOR FROG KICK & BUOYANCY CONTROL SKILLS....BECAUSE WE CAN
WE DON'T NEED TO HIDE!
HOPING TO  GAIN MORE THAN A PLASTIC CARD FROM A BUOYANCY COURSE WITH THE STATUS QUO
IS LIKE PLAYING POWERBALL

Taking a chance with
BuoyancyQuest....IS LIKE WINNING THE LOTTERY


COMPARE OUR VIDEOS TO OTHERS THAT YOU HAVE VIEWED

Most of the divers who can demonstrate buoyancy skills on a par with ours are dressed up like cave or tech divers.
WE try to avoid looking  like tech divers because we want the message to be "Better Buoyancy for ALL DIVERS!"

Check out the advertisment VIDEO for buoyancy from one of the world's largest training agencies.* FIRST they tell us how easily we can spot divers who have good buoyancy....then they show us three divers. Two of the three are wearing gloves on a warm water dive. One has a dangling console the size and shape of a hockey goalie's stick. The bare handed diver is both vertical and sculling with his bare hands. BUT....all 3 have snorkles attached to their masks.

*WE can't/won't name names....you will need to think about who the "proverbial shoe fits"....SO THINK!

 
OUR CONCLUSION: is that this training agency is probably better at selling a snorkel to every diver....
 ....than they would be at introducing "Better Fundamental SCUBA Skills"  to every diver.

buoyancy control skills
YES: we could have worn a dry suit and double tanks and a canister light in our VIDEOS.....BUT we wanted the message to be that this is a workshop about learning good buoyancy control and a silt free kick during a warm water dive travel adventure. A workshop  for everyone;  from beginners to instructors to tech divers & public safety divers.

BECAUSE THAT'S WHO NEEDS IT!
 < ONE OF US IS A CAVE DIVER

But "only" a cave diver. "Not" a cave instructor or a famous cave diver with lots of exploration credits and pending patents for "state of the art" scuba gadgets.

A CAVE DIVER who "only" mentors the kind of buoyancy control skills and the kind of kick that you need to have when you show up for your first day of cave diving class. YES; a mentor who actually knows what that kind of skill looks like!

YES....WE ARE OPEN WATER INSTRUCTORS: but let's not include acronyms and instructor numbers here because selling "only" fundamentals without the carrot on a stick [ dressing it up as tech diving ] or offering plastic rewards [ c-cards ] is difficult enough without identifying with an agency that is not famous for producing good divers or good instructors. When you see your instructor on the sales floor of your local dive shop you are probably seeing him/her at their best.

MANY OR MOST of the open water instructors who show up for cave diver training can not claim ownership of remarkable buoyancy skills in a single tank set up. Chances are good that you learned about diving from one or more of them.

WE PROMISE: you will gain buoyancy control skills and a frog kick that will put a smile on your cave instructor's face.

IF you have no plans to...."EVER"....be a technical diver, you'll still be nothing less than a diver with "cave diver quality" fundamental dive skills.

SHOULDN'T EVERY DIVER WANT NOTHING LESS THAN THAT?
Last but not least....
THINK ABOUT THIS!
Just about every SCUBA Class that you have ever attended, consisted of a lecture followed by one demonstration of each skill, by the instructor,  followed by one demonstration of the skill by you (the student). Followed by a C-CARD.

WE NEVER SCULL , WE DON'T HAVE DANGLIES & WE DON'T CONDUCT OUR WORKSHOP IN THAT MODEL.


WE OFFER AN ALTERNATIVE FOR DIVERS WHO ARE ABLE TO THINK OUTSIDE OF THE PROVERBIAL BOX


THAT DIVER: the one who has good Buoyancy & LOOKS GOOD underwater when "ALMOST" everyone else SUCKS!
