Last night I arrived as the others were filling their tanks for today’s diving – G-size cylinders of helium and oxygen lined the wall, dive gear arranged around its owners’ tubs. I finally met Rubens Monaco, our instructor for this course. Based in Victoria, Rubens makes the trip to Tasmania to instruct, saving participants the expense of a trip to Melbourne.
Tanks filled and analysed we adjourned to the divers’ accommodation at Go Dive’s Taranna facility where Rubens ran through the course outline. Then it was off to bed before Dive 1. Trimix, here I come.
