How To Find A Dive Buddy – Let’s keep people in the sport of scuba diving!
‘I love diving but I’ve got no one to go with.’
‘I don’t want to dive with strangers, so I don’t dive often.’
‘Nobody I know wants to get scuba certified. I’m buddy-less.’
All three of those statements were put to me in emails and video comments in the last three months. One of the biggest reasons people stop scuba diving is the lack of a regular buddy to dive with.
But finding a buddy can be super easy! I’ve got five tips to help!
Here are the resources mentioned in this video:

The Watch giveaway:
OK, so here’s the thing. Writing, shooting, editing, color grading, rendering and uploading videos takes time and has to be done in advance. Aquinus had told me months ago that they were going to do a giveaway and the dates would be: 7th September to 18th September for entries. Aquinus emailed me on Friday to say they didn’t want to run the competition anymore. Two days before this video was to go live! This video was already finished and queued up on YouTube by then and I didn’t have time to re-edit and re-upload it.
So here’s what we’re going to do…
Instead of Aquinus running a giveaway, Divers Ready! is going to run the giveaway! I’m going to giveaway the 007 serial number Aquinus MCP2019 limited edition watch that they sent to me, that’s featured in this video.
If you want a chance to win this watch, three simple things you have to do:
1. Subscribe to Divers Ready! on YouTube (if you haven’t done so already! If you have, good for you… you’re entered!)
2. Comment on this video, telling the world who your favorite dive buddy is and why.
3. Formally enter the contest through gleam so we can randomly pick a winner: https://gleam.io/xkKsN/aquinus-mcp2019-giveaway
This contest will run from 7th September 2020 to the 7th October 2020. The winner will be announced on October 8th 2020 and they will have one week to claim their prize. If no claimant comes forward, a redrawing will take place. The randomly selected winner from Gleam will be cross referenced against the comment section of this video and our subscriber list. There is no cash alternative. YouTube is not a sponsor and entrants are required to release YouTube from all liability related to this giveaway.
Thanks for watching and good luck!
