You may remember your PADI Instructor saying, “If you travel to a new location or visit an unfamiliar dive environment, get a local orientation.” It's good advice and easy to do. Here at Oceandivers we get many divers visiting us who have never dived in Irish style environments before and even though they may be very experienced in tropical diving, the challenges of colder water and more limited visibility can come as a big surprise!

What you will learn on the Orientation Dive

During the Orientation Dive, we will fit you out with one of our double thickness 7mm wet suits along with boots and gloves, all this neoprene will keep you comfortable but you will need a much heavier weight system due to the increased buoyancy. We will help you select and check your weights and trim then it's off for a shallow dive from the boat or shore during which we will show you the techniques we use for staying together and maintaining neutral buoyancy.
