A reminder to those on the West Coast, this event starts tomorrow at 10 AM.!


The Doing It Right (DIR) approach to diving is a complete system
integrating equipment, techniques, training, and attitude into a
holistic approach designed to maximize safety and comfort. The Monterey Bay Dive Center is pleased to present a demonstration of this philosophy which will be hosted by Mr. Michael Kane, a long-time and outspoken proponent of the system. Mr. Kane and his team will be speaking on effective gear configurations, appropriate dive planning and execution techniques, and sources of further training and information.
