Announcing a new eBook designed for recreational scuba divers of any experience level. The book was created to share lessons learned over many years and thousands of diving experiences from two renowned experts in the field of SCUBA, Dan Orr and Betty Orr.
The eBook is compilation of 101 stand-alone tips designed to guide readers toward their own safe and enjoyable diving practices and help them make informed decisions.
The past 2 weeks, we saw the awesome launch of Phase 2 of our Youth Sponsorship Program.
We want to thank our fabulous sponsors below for creating these awesome opportunities for our youth!

Nowadays, more and more recreational divers are coming into contact with technical rebreather divers, perhaps even being buddied up with one on a dive. What follows are some good things for open circuit divers to know about closed circuit rebreathers. Michael Rothschild gives us a quick glimpse into rebreather diving and what one can expect when diving in a mixed team.
Scubanomics is conducting research into the 'economics' of being a dive instructor. They are therefore asking active and non-active dive instructors - scuba diving and freediving instructors, instructor trainers, and course directors - to take part in a survey.
This should take approximately ten minutes to complete, and it is believed it is the first of its kind.
The resulting data will be published, in order that the dive industry benefits from it.
One of the most influential texts in diving is entirely rewritten, detailing a new vision for scuba diving with a clearer picture of the theory and practices behind performance diving strategies that support safe, efficient, and fun scuba diving. The new edition is available in English, German, Italian, Spanish, Korean, and Chinese.
Because DCS isn’t the most straightforward diving injury, myths and misconceptions about it tend to arise. DAN is committed to continually educating divers about it, and we’ve decided to clarify a few of the most common misconceptions about it to ensure that all divers are better able to recognize DCS, respond to it and get the treatment they need in time.
Interest among researchers has existed for a few decades, but it has increased in recent years as studies by such organizations as Duke University the University of South Florida have yielded intriguing results.
A recent big-data study performed by a DAN Europe research team used modern statistical analysis techniques to dig into a sample of nearly 40,000 open-circuit recreation dives and look for patterns and clues about DCS risk factors in real-world cases. Some of what they’ve found confirms our previous knowledge and opens entirely new avenues for research into the factors that contribute to DCS risk. Here’s what we’ve learned.
