Our Mission Statement....more or less?

ABOUT US:

"LOOK .... NO HANDS!"
( IS OUR MOTTO )
BECAUSE....SCULLING IS THE HALMARK OF A SUBSTANDARD DIVER


     WE SHARE A COMBINED 33 YEARS AS INSTRUCTORS WITH "ALMOST" 700 DIVERS CERTIFIED.
BUT
We ask that you judge us by how we look underwater .... not by how we look in print!

      We believe that Buoyancy Specialist C-Cards represent an opportunity for instructors and agencies to reward students with a plastic card rather than providing any really proficient examples of exceptional buoyancy control talent. Most buoyancy clinics are simply selling expensive plastic cards. A card that nobody will ever ask to see. Why not explore a buoyancy workshop that includes  visual examples and a "world class" dive travel experience? We'll show you what good buoyancy looks like through the faceplate of your mask. We offer 6X as many dives as most  buoyancy certification courses.

Buoyancy & Trim
  MAUREEN MILLER      

Maureen didn't even want to be a diver prior to 1998. Since 2003 she has been an instructor. She is a dive professional who can really look the part. Maureen is one of a small group of students and colleagues who saw wisdom in the "NO HANDS" Philosophy that John promotes. She embraced these methods and is an outstanding example of what a diver can and should look like. Her frog kick is remarkable. She is a patient instructor who has made a world of difference for more than one apprehensive student. Although not known for being bold and pushing the so called envelope, she has , on numerous occasions, handled "the unexpected" with composure. Her impressive buoyancy skills serve her well as an amateur underwater photographer. Many of her humble efforts grace our web pages and galleries.
You need not look any further than Maureen in order to see what
BuoyancyQuest is all about. It is not about "machismo" but about "finesse" not about "tech talk" but about "tech diver worthy".............ULTIMATE BUOYANCY SKILLS !

JOHN NOFTALL CAVE DIVING IN MEXICO
 JOHN NOFTALL

John  is the founder of BuoyancyQuest. He is considered , by some, to be a Buoyancy Control Guru. Buoyancy skills are what have always distinguished him from his peers as an instructor or a cave diver and they continue to be the focus of the mentoring that he provides. He believes in keeping the skills that he offers within the scope of what he does best.  John worked at a local dive center for 9 years and certified almost 600 divers.
John has been an NACD "full cave" certified diver since 1995 and began adapting some of the Hogarthian concepts to open water diving at once. He is most proud of the mentoring that he has provided while leading group travel to Mexico. His emphasis on fundamentals including frog kick and exceptional buoyancy skills has resulted in more than a few divers who signed up for a trip with the hope of having "FUN" returning home with a bonus they had never expected. Now he tries to make that bonus into the promise to and expectation of all who attend the workshops.

"SCULLING is the signature of poor buoyancy skills!"
( In SCUBA Diving .... SCULLING is not a technique .... Sculling is a FLAW! )

"SCULLING IS FOR OARS .... NOT ARMS!"
