Meet a Dive Buddy on Our Shore Dives

When you're certified to dive, you'll be able to join the Free divemaster guided shore dives. If you don't have a buddy, we will arrange for you to find one and will then give you a detailed brief. You can then choose to follow the divemaster for the dive or if your buddy group feels confident, you can dive as a separate buddy pair, with the divemaster making sure you are safe at entry and exit.

One of the best ways to meet other divers is during a surface interval. We'll be serving a hot cup of soup before your next dive, so you'll have a chance to chat with fellow divers and may even make a connection with those looking for a dive buddy.

Meet a Dive Buddy on Our Boat Dives

Like our shore dives, our boat dives are a terrific way to meet a new buddy. On these dives, we will buddy you up with another diver of similar ability and after your detailed briefing, you can either be guided by our divemaster or explore your site as a buddy pair.
