What sets Depth Wish apart from the rest is that we take it a step further by teaching each student advanced breathing and mindfulness techniques that you will not find in any other course. Additionally, Depth Wish teaches more than just the standard education; students will also leave with comprehensive dry training knowledge that they can apply to their everyday training in order to build their diving skills outside of the water.
