Weekend Review

Hey there Deep Blue Questers!

This weekend we had a fantastic group of students take part in our Open Water Course Referral Program.  It is a great program for those individuals who plan on traveling for the winter and would like to dive while they are on vacation.  Here is how it works:

You  start your PADI Open Water Scuba Diver Course in Korea and finish it up where ever you are going on Vacation. The program will take two days to complete from start to finish.

What will be included in your referral program:
1. You will receive your own PADI Open Water Manual with a recreational dive planner slate and a PADI Diver Log Book.

  1. We will conduct all five knowledge development sections and quizzes and examinations with you.

  2. We will conduct all your confined water pool sessions with you.

  3. Upon successful completion we will sign your PADI Referral form and log book.

We will provide lunch on both training days.

When you go on vacation, you will only have to complete the four required open water dives to complete you PADI Open Water Scuba Diver Certification.

Starting December 1st, 2013 until February 31st, Deep Blue Quest will be offering the PADI Referral program for the PADI Open Water Scuba Diver Course for 300.000 Korean Won.

Great Weekend Review

Hey There Deep Blue Questers!

We got back Sunday night from a great trip out to the ocean.  Between Russ and the team we conducted an Open Water course and an Advanced Open water course.  The water was calm and clear and it was a load of fun.  As per usual, we used Aqua Gallery as our preferred dive resort.  They take such good care of us and really make our trips out there a success.  Thank you Aqua Gallery.

Take a look at some of the photos that we took!

This coming weekend we will be conducting an Open Water Course at our Dive Shop in Paju.  For more information, please contact Russ.

Safe Diving!

Weekend Review

Hey there Deep Blue Questers!

This weekend we had an amazing time at our dive shop and at Suwon pool.  We conducted an Open Water Course and a Dry Suit Course.  The weather was beautiful, the people were great, and everything went wonderfully.

Next weekend we will be heading off to the ocean to conduct an Open Water Course, Boat Diving Course, Dry Suit Course, and an Advanced Open Water course.  It should be a blast.  If you want to come, either to take a course or just fun dive, let us know and we can accommodate you.

Oh the great life being a PADI Diver

Deep Blue Questers,

It’s should be no surprise to any of you, diving is amazing!  Well, we here at Deep Blue Quest think it is, and if you give us enough time, we will make sure you agree.

Last weekend and early of this week, we spent an amazing time at our dive shop in Paju.  We taught and open water course, a Divemaster course, and started an IDC(Instructor Development Course).  Surrounded by such talented and enthusiastic students and friends, furthering our dive knowledge, and keeping the DBQ family growing has been wonderful.

We are off to the ocean tonight, to start a camp that should prove wonderful.  We have Divemaster training, Rescue Diver training, Instructor training, Open water training, and Advanced Open water training.  In 5 days, we do a lot of training!  We will update photos as we get them, but for now, take a look at the past few days we have had!

As always, but no less important than always,


Chuseok Camp Update

Hey There Deep Blue Questers!

We are a little bit late getting this blog up, but we wanted to share what an amazing time we had during our Chuseok camp.  The weather was perfect all 5 days, the water temp on the shallow dives was so warm that no hoods were required, and overall it was one of the best tours of the whole year.

As per usual, we used Aqua Gallery as our dive resort because of how well they take care of us, and generally how great they are.  Take a look at our photos and let us know what you think!

Our next camp will be October 2 through to October 6th. So if you want to join us, please let Russ know.  We will be conducting certifications and doing lots of fun dives.

Until next time,

Safe Diving!
