Congrats to new Full Cave Instructor Garry Dallas!

So after 7 days of intense training and evaluation we at Sirius Diving would like to congratulate Garry Dallas from Simply Sidemount & Simply Tec for successfully completing his TDI Full Cave Instructor Course and lots of thanks to Tom Steiner from Gozo Technical Diving for doing a great job in preparing him for it. Well done Sir and well earned.

His comment after the course: ” I’ve passed my full cave instructor course with TDI !!! 🙂
It’s been an intensive but amazing few weeks.
I would like to thank Kris Harrison from Sirius Diving for putting his heart and soul into the course from start to finish. His meticulous attention to every aspect of technical detail is reassuringly satisfying. This is what every instructor should do no matter what level, peoples’ lives depend on you. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed your training. Thank you 🙂
Tom Steiner you have been there all the way for me. Your teaching and guidance has been very influential above and beyond the standard course. I thank you for that too 🙂
I have been privileged to be taught by some of the best instructors to date and I intend to pass their knowledge and experience on to others to make diving as safe as possible.
Feeling humbled, relieved but yet marginally ecstatic to have attained this goal, although not quite sunk in yet.

A great dive with Nick in Cenote ‘El Toh’

Here is a few minute clip of Nick and Tamara diving in Cenote ‘El Toh’. This under water cave system is located in between Playa del Carmen and Tulum, Yucatan, Mexico.
