My name is Damien.
I'm an SDI Instructor, PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer, and Coxswain based in Brisbane, Australia. Wherever you are in South East Queensland or beyond, I'll teach you how to dive safely and confidently from the very beginning.
I've been lucky enough to dive in a range of conditions all around the world; experiencing a lot of different aspects of diving that I can pass on to my students.
I can also be hired on a contract basis for Coxswain, Divemaster, Guide, and Instructor activities.
Your path to becoming a safer, more confident diver...
So you want to learn to dive but it all looks a bit confusing. It's actually quite easy to understand once you know how the progression works. Start by learning to dive with the Open Water course, and then dive as much as you can to really build your confidence and skills.
If you're looking for opportunities to dive but don't have a buddy, try one of my trips. I'll match you with someone suitable.
If it's been a while since you last dived, a lot of dive charters won't take you out. Consider a private dive refresher to tune up your skills and get back in the water sooner.
When you're ready to progress, take the Advanced Open Water Diver course, or some Specialty courses such as Nitrox, Peak Performance Buoyancy, or more.
When you're even more comfortable, consider earning the Rescue Diver certification to learn more about keeping yourself and others out of trouble.
Go exploring in the training pool to get an idea of some classes that are available. That's just the most popular classes though - get in touch if you have some other ideas and I'll see what we can organise.
