DRYSUIT DIVER COURSE OVERVIEW

After completing my orientation in the pool during the week, I started with a dive in Andark lake on a sunny Saturday to start Dive 1 of my Dry Suit Diver course. The visibility was low, but much better than it had been, and we were diving right to the bottom at 6.5 meters…

ANDARK SCHOLAR DIVE CENTRE DUTIES

Having officially started the Divemaster Scholarship a few weeks ago, the main priority has been on learning the roles and responsibilities expected of us over the summer. The generic tasks are quite simple but keep us relatively busy; filling cylinders, maintaining…

PADI DEEP DIVER COURSE

The Deep Diver specialty had been on my radar for a while, as the extension to the maximum limit of recreational diving opens a range of opportunities. While many will say the best of diving can be seen in shallower waters, the skills required to be certified to deeper depths ensures a…

JACK MAYNARD – Andark Divemaster Scholarship 2023

I am mostly interested in gaining experience from the scholarship as working with Andark means we are learning about the day to day running of a dive centre so in future we will be ready to work and know what we are expecting…

A REAL LIFE MERMAID

My athletic prowess consists of being able to float and sink. And that’s it really! Even when I was a little kid I could dive in the deep end for pennies. My dad taught me to snorkel in the 70’s but it wasn’t until I was 28 (1994) that I learnt to dive

TWENTY YEARS A DIVEMASTER

2022, is my 20th year as a working PADI Divemaster with Andark. Although my love of diving started well over 40 years ago with a try dive in the South of France, like many, life got in the way;
