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.

Hey guys!

Just wanted to say that if there is anyone interested in doing a Tech1 dive in Malta and is looking for a teammate, please feel free to contact me. I have recently completed the T1 in Croatia with K. Egorov and it would be great if I could dive the Maltese wrecks with some fellow GUE divers.

» Looking for teammates for C1 dives in Mexico

Apr 12, 2015 - 5:58 AM - by zulu

I will be in Mexico from May 11t to 19th, and I am looking to connect with divers wanting to do C1 dives.

I graduated in 2013 and now looking to build some experience. Safety is my top priority, but otherwise I am rather chilled out.

Please let me know if you are interested.
