Additional Info

In my life I have been a passionate enthusiast and teacher of flying, sailing, and - today - the GUE method of diving.

GUE Fundamentals and DPV 1 classes are most often taught on Mactan island, a short drive from the Cebu airport ('CEB') and the second-largest city in the Philippines

Recreational and professional divers who are interested in learning more about the GUE method are invited to contact me - I am sure we can find a time to meet and dive soon.

'One-on-one' personal coaching and 'try before you buy' equipment purchases are also available in Cebu, and elsewhere in Asia.

Visiting GUE divers and instructors will find a warm welcome at Scotty's with technical equipment and mixed gases readily available - do contact me for recommendations or assistance in making your diving vacation a memorable one.

There is rarely a bad day to go diving in the Philippines :)
