Weekend Preview plus Announcements!

Hey there Deep Blue Questers!

We are gearing up for a great weekend.  At the Dive Shop in Paju, we will be conducting an Open Water Course, a Rescue Diver Course, an EFR Course, AND a Tune Up course. We are so excited to get into the classroom and pool with some great students.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with what these courses are, here is a brief overview.

Open Water: This is PADI’s course designed for beginner divers.  The course entails classroom learning, training in the pool, and ocean dives.  It is designed to take divers who have never done SCUBA before, and teach them all that they need to know to be safe and competent divers.

Rescue Diver: The Rescue diver course is one of the most challenging and rewarding courses that PADI offers.  The purpose of the course is to prepare divers to handle diving related emergencies through knowledge developments, pool training and ocean training.

EFR: This course is a first-aid and CPR course, with skills that are both important for diving and for life in general.  After taking this course, you will be well-prepared for any potential future accidents that you may encounter.

for more information about any of these courses,  contact us at the dive shop



Every year Deep Blue Quest runs a summer camp at the ocean for a week full of training, diving, and fun in the sun.  We will be running the summer camp from July 27th and  until August 4th.

We will post more details soon, but don’t forget to save the dates….It really is the best week of the year

Weekend Review

Hey there Deep Blue Questers!

We just finished a great weekend of ocean diving!  Completing both an Advanced Open Water Course and two Specialty courses was exciting for everybody.  We went to Aqua Gallery, which if you follow this blog you will know is one of our favorite diving resorts in Korea.  They always make sure that our diving experience is second to none.

Take a look at some of our photos from the trip:

As a reminder, We will be holding an Open Water course this coming weekend in Paju and there is still a few spots free.  Contact us if you are interested.

Great Weekend Review!

Deep Blue Questers!  We wanted to share our amazing last weekend out at the Ocean.  On Saturday we went to Munam resort for some very fine diving.  The tour was to certify two  open water students and the conditions could not have been better.  Warm water, great visibility and loads of underwater wildlife.

On Sunday, we took our students to the great Aqua Gallery to finish up their certifications dives and the conditions were even better!  Take a look at the photos and see for yourselves!

As always, if you are interested in any of the courses that Deep Blue Quest offers, please contact Russ at:

Okinawa Review!

Deep Blue Quest is Back! From Okinawa that is.

We had an amazing 5 days diving and exploring Okinawa this past week. The diving was perfect, the staff at Take Dive! was as amazing as always, and everybody had a blast.  A special thanks needs to go out to Take Dive! for showing us such amazing service and sharing some of their favorite dive sites with us.  Take a look at some of our photos:

Now that we are back in Korea, we are gearing up for an Ocean trip this weekend!  It really is great to be a diver.

Weekend Review

Hey there Deep Blue Questers!

We wanted to tell you about our recent great weekend.  Deep Blue Quest took advantage of an unexpected weekend in Seoul to do some heavy spring cleaning.

Russ attended the IDC Refresher course on Saturday and showed that his skills are still amazing, while learning some new standards that PADI is implementing.  Among them was a new way to teach ‘out-of-air’ scenarios, and two new ways to bring students down on their open water dives.

On Sunday, Russ, Ken, and Chuck the intern tackled the very large job of cleaning the dive shop inside and out.  The shop looks amazing, and we invite past students and prospective students to check it out.

While cleaning, some of our past and current students stopped by to chat, finalize paperwork, and in the case of two students, show us their motorcycles.  The long debate between cruisers and sport bikes shows no end in sight, but both were beautiful looking rides.

A reminder:  Deep Blue Quest is in Okinawa from the 5th through the 10th.

Have a great long weekend.  Safe Diving!
