Doing It Right (DIR) is a holistic approach to SCUBA diving,
encompasses several essential elements, including fundamental diving
skills, teamwork, physical fitness, & the use of streamlined,
minimalistic & standardised equipment configurations, to maximise safety, efficiency & enjoyment of the underwater
environment. The DIR approach was originally confined to cave diving but
soon extended to both technical & recreational
Club, team & staff members
at In Deep have
adopted & supported DIR disciplines &
philosophies in diving for many years. As such DIR is reflected in
