San Juan Wreck Dive, Cebu, Philippines 2014

Diving San Juan Ferry wreck is always cool! Only 45min boat trip to Liloan which is at the north of Mactan Island. Sea conditions were quiet good.

Tec Sidemount Diver Course

PADI Tec Sidemount Diver Course is perfect for technical divers who like to use sidemount configuration while diving in overhead environment.

Sidemount configuration […]

SAC Rate

SAC Rate

Every diver should know the surface air consumption rate in order to properly plan the dive. Knowing how much air we consume during the dive is at most important and I am not talking just about monitoring the gauge.
