New Trainings Aid for Rescue and EFR/MFA Course

As a Scuba Diving Instructor (or to be exact PADI-MSDT), I can teach up to Dive-Master or Master Scuba Diver at non professional Level.

They are known to throw things on the market which are pretty useless, for me even sometimes too hard, to remember the Acronym of that thingies. Be honest, who in the wide wide world of Scuba Diving needs a eMLRDP. If you don’t know what an eMLRDP is, just forget it right away and never ever think about it again, unless you want to become a Dive-Master, Scuba Diving instructor or higher. read more

Quality Dive-Shops in the Philippines

Coron, Palawan – Mega Resort on Diwaran

The small Island of Diwaran next to Coron, Palawan, is supposed to be transformed in a new Luxury-Beach-Resort until 2012. As this would support the local-tourism industry it's still a question how that will end.. The whole Island should compete or stand aside Phuket in Thailand.
