DIR Explorers - the next step in DIR Diving!

Welcome back Unregistered

DIR diving is a fast growing approach to diving. Be it technical or recreational, wreck, cave or reef, DIR diving can be relevant to the diving that you do. Jump in on our DIR forums, find out more about who we are, what we do, and how we do it.

DIRX is a DIR diving forum run by DIR divers for both DIR divers and those who are interested in learning more about our approach to diving. There is a lot of information around on the internet about DIR, we hope to bring it together here, at DIRX, into one resource which each of us can use.

So look around, tell us who you are, what you would like to see from DIRX, ask some questions, post reports of diving that you have done, or would like to do.

Safe Diving all from Graham Blackmore, Brian Allen and all of us in the DIRX Team.

Now, my name is Jose, I am a Portuguese guy living in Bracknell, but with a lot of travelling in my agenda! So, I get to dive all around! ... [Read More]

Sep 10, 2014 - 2:41 PM - by vadiver
Some of my buddies invited me to Scappa Flow next year and I was wondering if there is a GUE/DIR dive shop in the area? I'd like to chat with them about logistics, conditions, the availability of tanks, etc... Any info would be greatly appreciated.


» Li-ion or LiPo battery in Halcyon HDV-R14 DPV?

Sep 08, 2014 - 7:53 PM - by henrik242

Would it be possible to replace the NiMH cells in a HDV-R14 with a Li-ion or LiPo battery pack? I'm considering asking a local battery business make one for me, but is it advisable at all? Is the existing water seal good enough protection for the batteries?

» Sardinia in February?

Aug 30, 2014 - 1:26 PM - by Niels Doorduijn
A buddy of mine and I are considering a week of deep wreck diving in Sardinia in February next year. Is that realistic as far as weather is concerned? Or is it better to wait a bit longer?

Best wishes,

» Great White Shark encounter off Catalina island

Aug 29, 2014 - 5:58 PM - by Karim
During one of our ghost nets clean-up dive off Catalina island, the Los Angeles Underwater Explorers (LAUE) came face to face with a pregnant female great white. The encounter was amazing and lasted about 4 minutes. The shark was circling around the documentation team (Cyrille Rio and Landyn Froehlich) from 150 ft upward, while the net cutting team came down and met the two divers and shark at 110ft.

The daily assignment for the documentation team was to
