Buddy system just that

We are avid divers and love diving in Cayman where we have found the guides to be among the most attentive and professional than other places we have been.

Time and time again we see certified divers who do not follow the basic rules or just chose to ignore them.

A buddy team is a buddy team.

Although the outcome of the Scuba diver who died because of an enlarged heart may have been the same, had the two divers remained together, the injured man may have had a chance.

I have reached a stage where I will not dive with someone whose skills and outlook I don’t know.

It might mean missing out on a dive, but it is better to be safe than sorry.

I am sorry for the wife and those at Don Foster’s who worked on the victim.
