Why This Blog?

As a scuba instructor, I get a lot of students asking questions, prefaced with a “Can I ask a stupid question?” First up, there’s no such thing as a stupid question! There’s only information that you haven’t yet discovered!

In order to help new divers and experienced divers alike, we’ve created a place where any diver can ask any question they want, and also find answers that they are looking for.

We try to answer all questions in an organization- and brand-neutral, logical and unbiased manner, but please forgive us if we don’t manage to do so because of our diving context and experiences. Our answers are carefully thought through and we hope they provide a balanced perspective. Please comment and contribute to make this resource even more useful to others!


Leon Boey is a GUE, HSA and PADI instructor based in Singapore and Bali. He runs the dive education centre Living Seas in Singapore and Bali. Diving since 2005, he first fell in love with wrecks. He enjoys all sorts of diving, and loves being surrounded by fish.

When Leon is not busy diving the lengthy coastline of Bali and the volcano lakes inland, blogging or teaching, he can be found exploring the numerous nice restaurants around Bali!
