That’s right! This October 17th-24th Karina and I will be taking a small group of divers with us to the scuba paradise of Bonaire. But because this is a Divers Ready trip, we want to turn the luxury up to 11. I want you to picture:

• Unlimited diving on air or nitrox.
• A sleek, modern ocean front villa with a pool
• Your Private chef making your breakfast each morning.
• An amazing farewell BBQ at the end of the trip.
• Personalised snack boxes for the between dive munchies
• Your own private truck to explore all the island has to offer.

• A swag bag jam packed of gear from our favourite dive brands like Surf Fur, Dive Rite, Stream2Sea

And…. AND! One full day of scuba coaching with me as your personal dive guide and buddy. What would you want to brush up on? Want to work on reducing your gas consumption? Great! Want to work on your buoyancy and trim? Absolutely. A masterclass with me on any area of your diving you want to improve.

And then in the evenings we get to hang on the deck of our ocean front villa, enjoy a cold beverage and chat scuba as we watch the sun sink into the Caribbean.

If you want to join us on this epic scuba diving adventure, the link in the description of this video will take you straight to the trip brochure and booking form.

We can’t wait to see you and dive with you in paradise!

Dive safe, dive often.

James & Karina

Meet James Blackman

With a career in diving spanning twenty years, James has seen a thing or two in the dive industry. James grew up on the Southwest coast of Britain and learned to dive in the frigid waters of the English Channel. If your first dives were like being placed in a cocktail shaker full of cabbage soup and you come away with a love for the sport, then you know it’s going to be a life-long pursuit.

James spent his twenties in the British merchant marine which afforded him the opportunity to travel to and dive in far flung locales… 177 countries and counting. Between stints onboard a variety of vessels, James used his shore leaves to level up his scuba training… Rescue diver in Tanzania, DM in Indonesia, Instructor in Honduras, Tec Instructor in the French West Indies.

His last ship before moving to a shore-based life style was an expedition ship where he notched up some of his most impressive dives, including briefly holding the world record for most northerly scuba dive… 82 degrees north in the Russian arctic; diving the Amazon river; the Antarctic; and virgin reef systems in Papua New Guinea and Melanesia.

Moving ashore in his early thirties, James took on the role of General Manager for a luxury dive operator in St Martin and never had a dull moment! Hollywood visited the island and called upon James’ underwater skills for on-set safety. When Cat-3 hurricane Gonzalo devastated the area, James switched hats to salvage and public safety diver to help with the recovery.

Scuba Diving has given so much to James in his life… and first on that list is his brilliant wife Karina whom he met whilst teaching her AOW class! Yes, that old cliché! James and Karina are also business partners and co-owners of two power-house scuba brands. Miami Technical Diving has become the premiere scuba training facility in South Florida. Tired of seeing other dive shops compete in a ‘race to the bottom,’ James decided his model for teaching scuba would focus on keeping the quality as high as possible; using the best gear possible; teaching beyond the minimum standards on a 1-to-1 student-to-instructor ratio. The fullness of the MTD training calendar shows that people – student divers – prefer to receive premium, quality tuition, as opposed to cheap and fast.

James is the personality and knowledge broker behind ‘Divers Ready!’ a super influential Scuba Diving YouTube channelwebsite and brand. In just a year, Divers Ready! has become the fastest growing You Tube channel in the Scuba Diving niche, with 1000s of new divers joining every month. Their weekly videos range from Mouthpiece Mondays – where James shares his insider knowledge and opinions about controversial topics in the dive industry – to practical ‘hints & tutorial’ style videos, all with one simple goal in mind – to make you a better diver!

James and Karina started small group luxury dive trips for the Divers Ready! audience.

James and Karina live in Miami, FL with their rambunctious dogs; Ziggy The Husky and Bonham the Mutt, and their Maine Coon cat Foxy, who remains unimpressed.
