iDiveblue | Est. 2018
The Official House of Watersport
We - the brothers of iDiveBlue - have seen many of Poseidon’s awe-inspiring, oceanic blessings. Bill - the eldest - is your classic salty seadog. A Civil Engineer by trade, but a thalassophile at heart. He is a well-traveled diver that lived in Florida for two years. Dives have taken him from Mozambique to the Red Sea, from the Bahamas to Cape Town, to the Floridian Keys and beyond. His most organic state underwater is as a freediver, one gifted with an incredible breath-hold. His worldly, waterborne ways have also seen him become an experienced deckhand on superyachts and a well-qualified skipper aboard most vessels. The man has seen everything there is to see below the surface and is always ready to shoot it all... with a GoPro of course.
Then there's me: Nate. I am simply a University of Cape Town postgraduate, working as an independent investment strategist while ensuring iDiveblue stays ticking. Corporate doesn't do the trick for me: I will take a suit of rubber over an Armani one any day of the week. Same as good ole Bill, I got me some certifications, but diving is not the primary reason for my being here. I love our oceans, but I am not in love with the state they’re in. I am hoping to do something about that!
Last off, nature has long been my wisest teacher. The sea has taught me about uncertainty far better than my investment qualifications ever could. In a few brief moments, the oceans can transform from a picturesque mirror of cadence and wonder, to Calypso - the mercurial god of Hurricane Dorian, devastating tsunamis, and Jaws himself. Certainty is in short supply.
So, if you find yourself here, uncertain of what buoyancy compensator to buy, where to freedive in Belize, how to fish Crankbait, or what you can do to save our oceans – fret not. For while there is a science to these crafts, our writers and researchers are qualified experts; the marine elite. Let them, Bill, and myself equip you with not only the right gear but the right advice.
Because if you are going to dive, Dive Blue...
