The dives will be done on a ‘buddy system’ basis. The dive guide will not necessarily be in the water to accompany and lead the divers. The guides will stay on the surface for the divers’ safety. The divers are expected to be experienced enough to read their compass, depth gauges and look after each other in order to have a safe dive. Buddy team setup is always a critical issue: we do let our divers match themselves as much as possible and feasible. In cases where divers have not paired up themselves or where we are in doubt, dive guides sit down with divers and discuss their expectations and level of experience. We try to pair people so that similar interest, experience and dive duration matches. If there is an uneven number of diving customers at some dives and no three-person group is feasible, the guides will come along.
