4th November 2017 - End of another great HSE Scuba Course 

That was a very pleasant two weeks completing the HSE SCUBA course for author Will Appleyard, a well known O'Three Ltd ambassador, regular Diver magazine contributor, and the author of Dorset Dives, and, in the not too distant future, I feel the probability of a “And two go SCUBA” in the style of Enid Blyton!


Adrian, Ian and I almost wet myself laughing when we were diving in Portland harbour from Skindeep Diving Charters Portland on Wednesday, and on the through water comms Will was mistaken by the SBS as one of their divers !


Accompanying Will was Ian France, a very accomplished IANTD instructor trainer, all round good egg and cool cat. Those of you that know Ian will be pleased to know that the dreadful salt water has been washed off him now.


I love my job when I get people on courses who are passionate about their work and diving and just soak soak it all up, Ian is like a ballerina in the water, it was like watching mercury flow, all he needs to do now is learn to speak proper English and he is made.

It was a real pleasure guys.

2nd October 2017 - A great day at the DDRC

The guys on the HSE Scuba course had a great day at the DDRC in Plymouth learning all about the chamber operations and procedures. This is one small element within our HSE Scuba course, and was followed by a days diving off Portland with Skin Deeper.
