WE GET IT!!!
Why would you want to spend that money you've saved up for your cave course:
To only attend some obscure Buoyancy Skills Clinic?
WE EXIST....because we've seen the buoyancy skills that too many of you bring to your dive travel destinations and that more than a few of you, mostly instructors, bring to your first day of your cave diving course in double tanks and tech gear.

 WE MENTOR "ONLY" BUOYANCY CONTROL SKILLS....BECAUSE WE CAN!

ARE WE EXPEN$IVE?
Compared to most 2 dive certification courses we are...BUT...we include 13 dives and we are "NOT" a certification course.
WE SELL SKILLS & ABILITY NOT C-CARDS!
Remember also, that you are experiencing a better than average Cozumel Dive Trip at the same time as you are learning.

GROUPS AS SMALL AS  (6 DIVERS) OR AS LARGE AS 14, CAN ARRANGE FOR THIS FUNDAMENTAL TRAINING.

IF you are a group of at least 6 divers from a club, dive team or  local dive center we can begin to plan a workshop.

IF you are a buddy team or an individual, contact us.  We promise to try to combine you with others to form a group.

UNFORTUNATLY....interest in anything more than the typical "mediocre"  Certification Courses remains low.

IF you are interested in exploring the scope of the "SKILL LEVEL" that we promote....you are truly in the minority!
WE ASK TO SEE PROOF OF BASIC DIVER CERTIFICATION & DIVE TRAVEL INSURANCE.

This workshop is open to any diver who can meet those two requirements and who shows up with a serious desire to make real improvement to their fundamental SCUBA Skills.

This is "NOT" another "Mickey Mouse" buoyancy certification course.

We don't promise you a plastic card and they (the ones who sell the cards)__CAN'T promise to share skills with you __that they have not mastered.

WE promise to share what we know about FUNDAMENTAL SCUBA SKILLS!  Better buoyancy and propulsion skills carry with them the bonus of better gas consumption and longer bottom times. You will look better UNDERWATER, we guarantee it! You will gain real confidence....we guarantee that also!

IF your goal is to "only" get another plastic card or to "only" look good on paper, this is the wrong workshop for you. Don't waste our time and your money and/or please don't show up ready to teach us a thing or two. We already know a thing or two and we know a good diver when we see one! We sometimes know before we see one get wet.
IF you have nothing to learn_we can't help you.

LEADERSHIP LEVEL DIVERS ( aka. INSTRUCTORS )

We know that you need this type of mentoring even though you are proud of "that instructor number".
We know that you know what your shortcomings are and that you are likely "whistling in the dark" and   hoping that nobody will notice.  WE did and we do notice!

"IF" you are wondering how we can make such a "bold accusation",
the answer is simple: we have "real confidence" because these are the skills where we excel. We made sure we kept the horse in front of the cart. We worked hard at  fundamentals "FIRST" before we attempted bigger goals. We don't pretend to be more than we are.  We offer to "only" mentor talent that we are sure we can deliver. "IF" you can say the same__"MAYBE"__we don't mean you___BUT can you say the same?

Offering noticeable skills without the promise of a c-card, is like performing acrobatics without a net. We have to deliver on our promise. We can't do a "tap dance" or depend on a "smoke screen".
WE HAVE NO PLACE TO HIDE!
But that's OK because we don't need to hide...."we can walk the walk"!

We welcome other instructors into this workshop. Since we have no intention of franchising what we offer and we know that you will, no doubt, subsequently, offer similar training , we must be realistic. We don't mind if you mention our name but since we have no control over what you do with what you learn from us, we cannot endorse whatever you might market, in the future that is based on the  mentoring that you recieved from us.

"IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT" you will realize the big agencies have little control over their franchised instructors either but they want to sell both credentials to their members and take a percentage of every future student instructor relationship. If we were a training agency we might have to worry about some instructor in a pool in Orlando or Las Vegas putting our name on something less than what we offer. We never  have to suffer that insult!

We  share what we know in a "one stop and one time" workshop but unlike a training agency, we refuse to be responsible for how, the original might get diluted or otherwise dumbed down.

Of course we know that , if you are an instructor, you must have many lesser C-Cards that you can show us. 
AND we are familar with the : "I'm an instructor but I don't show my instructor card on the boat", speech. This is almost  a cliche! Those who use it, seem at first,  to give the impression of being humble, but we see it as another example of the ultimate "EGO TRIP".

SO.... if you don't tell us that you are an instructor, we'll only know what kind of diver you are.
FOR SURE we'll know that....that's the other thing we do well....WE CAN IDENTIFY A GOOD DIVER!

 What is missing in diving and why do basics like FROG KICK & Buoyancy Control SKILLS have VALUE?


BuoyancyQuest     HOME PAGE
NON-DIVERS
We have this habit of saying what we think even when we know that it might not be popular.... so here goes:

You can substitute "GOLF" or other pastimes in place of diving and get similar results. Of course this only applies to group travel. Divers who travel to SCUBA Locations with non-divers who do so on their own may not be subject to this syndrome. The first verse of the song usually goes like this; "as long as I can be in the sun with my book or ipod I don't care how much time you spend diving....dive your brains out!"  The second verse (after 3 or 4 days) often sounds like this; "hey this is my vacation too....when can we spend some time away from THOSE OTHER PEOPLE?"
The problem of course is: that on a group dive vacation, the divers dive and then relive their diving with other divers from their group. Over dinner, over breakfast  and , of course, over drinks. More often than not, being a non-diver on an organized dive travel trip is awkward, at best.
IF you still need a non diver rate....just use the single rate above....it will cover the cost of your non-diver room mate.

WHY NOT LOOK LIKE THE DIVER THAT SOMEONE ELSE WOULD LIKE TO BE?
