Who will be my dive buddy
Are you travelling on your own or your partner doesn’t dive, then you will probably be wondering who will be my dive buddy?
Will he or she use more air and will I have to come up from my dive early?
Will I use more air and cut his or her dive short?
Am I the more experienced diver and have to look after a beginner?
Are you a beginner and are worried to dive with a stranger?
Are you diving with a camera or a GoPro? You probably want to take it slow to look out for marine life and take your time with your camera. Will your buddy enjoy being your spotter or will he / she swim too fast for you?
If you are diving with Nitrox and would like to use the advantage of the extended bottom time, will you have a buddy who also dives on Nitrox?
Is my dive buddy a bit of a rascal and wants to go deep and check out all the overhangs or will he or she want to take it easy and stay shallow.
Maybe you like to see sharks and have no problem diving in current then you are wondering if your buddy will be able to handle the current.
All this is of course no problem if you know your dive buddy but what happens if you are a single diver?
To answer all these questions and have solutions we talk to you and find out your preferences. Once we know, we can buddy you up with the right partner. A check dive comes in handy to find out the skill level of each of our divers. If we have an uneven number of divers on the boat, you might even become the buddy of the guide. On the dive boat we split our divers in different groups each with a separate guide. This ensures that you will enjoy your experience and have a safe dive. Actually on the dive boat quickly everybody becomes friends while talking about diving and marine life. And once you have made new friends finding a dive buddy is even easier.
