Recreational diving is one of the most fun and safest sports to practice. It also never gets boring and is even good for your health!
QUALITY INSTRUCTORS = QUALITY INSTRUCTION
All of the diving community remembers their first instructor. They were the beacon of relaxation in what is, at least at first, quite an exhilarating experience. Assuming they did their job well, they opened up a whole new world to us unsuspecting students. We, the instructors at Pure Diving Aruba, aim to be this person for you. We have dedicated our lives to teaching diving and won’t take an indifferent approach to your diving education, whether you are:
- A first time diver doing the Discover Scuba Diving experience.
- A first time diver doing the Open Water Diver course.
- A diver continuing their education with the Advanced Diver course or the Rescue Diver course.
- A diver specializing in a specific aspect of diving by doing a Specialty course.
THE PURE DIVING DIFFERENCE
At Pure Diving Aruba, we strictly follow the course guidelines and manual, no matter if you’re participating in a PADI or an SDI course. Whenever possible however, we add an extra layer of training. We call this our “Eco Signature”. What this entails is entirely dependent of the student.
While doing confined water skill training, your instructor might challenge you to re-do skills that you’ve already completed up to course standards, but this time in neutral buoyancy, hovering just above the bottom. This trains your buoyancy and breath control, hopefully resulting in you not crashing into coral while performing the skill in the future. It also prepares you for real life scenario’s where you most likely will not be sitting on your knees on a sandy bottom when you need to recover your regulator or clear your mask. Or perhaps your instructor feels you would benefit from a little practice in different finning techniques so you become less tired, have better air consumption and are more aware of your fins in relation to the coral.
The aim of these little add-ons is for you to become a better diver that is, and feels, in control underwater. Plus, you will be less likely to accidentally break the crucial structures that make up the reef, or hurt yourself!
