  • Just a poll to see what different aspirations people may have in their diving 'career', ;D and to understand the expectations which might be helpful for operators to cater their courses/offerings/trip organising. :D
    Some people like to take courses to learn, however others prefer to spend money on new experiences. Pls vote! 8)

  • At the moment i will definitely wanna do AOW. Thinking that i will stop after that and just do leisure diving. However till then who knows?
    I do agree that the Mola-Molas are a MYTH!

  • Same mostly, never going to do it as a professional. In any case EANx is useful as well.

    Mostly all I expect is safety facilities and attitude (o2 on boat, sensible briefing and pairing etc). Don't care about much else and don't want people trying to sell me stuff.

    Oh yeah, small groups.

    For a resort, hot water and decent food.

  • Top of the List = Nitrox (you missed out Rescue Diver)
    Then later on Tech Diving (Cave & Wreck Diving).

  • I think I stop at AOW because I don't intend to make diving a career.
