Why Train with Us and Mission Statement

Why Train with Mer and Wet Rocks Diving

Skip to Mission Statement

  • Involved with GUE since 2003
  • Trained with the Founders of GUE
  • Been in your shoes
    • Mer (and others on the Wet Rocks Diving team) learned to be high-capacity divers via GUE Fundamentals and learned to Cave dive and Tech dive through GUE.
    • This makes us very familiar with the psychology of the process our students experience since we dealt with fixing our own real problems during these GUE classes.
  • 15+ years in education, 5+ years in SCUBA education
  • Heavily involved in projects and other volunteer efforts in diving
    • Cave exploration
    • Project Baseline major missions & R/V Baseline Explorer
  • Believe in fair and balanced feedback
    • We identify what worked and WHY
    • We identify what could be improved and SPECIFIC solutions to YOUR focus areas
    • We establish priorities for how YOU should train
    • We put you on a trajectory of improvement with specifics on how to continue that trend even once class is over
  • Empathy without compromising high standards
  • Judgement-free zone for Fundamentals
      • Come with an open mind and listen to the story of GUE’s holistic system and the reasons behind it
      • If at the end, this holistic way of diving is not for you, that’s OKAY! Feel free to take away skills improvements and add them to your system of choice.
