what is mentored diving?

Au Au CraterMentored diving is not formal instruction; rather, we do some dives and you learn tips, tricks, and methods to enhance your diving in a casual setting, all while enjoying some great dives. Among other tools, your coach typically will use video analysis to accelerate improvement. Dive briefing and de-briefings will focus on your goals, skill set, identifying strengths and weaknesses, and ways to improve. Mentored diving can range from a single half a day to a series of multiple dive days over a week or a year, depending on your needs and goals. Improve your skills and have more fun on your dives!

Mer also specializes in:

  • Unique challenges women and smaller divers face with fine-tuning their equipment
  • Team coaching
  • Trained cave divers wanting to improve their high-flow cave diving techniques and positioning

  • Goals
