Can you send me a link to more info on the suits used in the nbl?
I understand the requirements to becoming a diver at the NBL but I do not quite understand the hiring process nor where to apply for these postions. If anyone may enlighten my way please I will take all oppurtunities to learn as much as I can.
If you have anyone in the Frisco TX area the idiotic Flat Earth Intl CONvention (ie: robbing the ignorant) 😁is going on. I hate those guys... Please - go point and laugh if you have the time!
Will the NBL ever be streamed live? Coz that would be sooo amazing to watch!!!!
Please let me know if you will attend our visit to the NBL tomorrow! 🙂
Is there a way I can get a guided dive at this place :)~ maybe a invite.🤩
how do you apply for a diver or dive supervisor ? please forward info thank you
How do you maintain the water in such a large pool, I take care of a 370,000 gallon pool. Which is work. But I'm sure it's nothing compared to that.
So, any chance I can bring open water scuba students here for their pool training session? Y’all don’t have to do anything & I just need a small section of the pool. You won’t even notice we’re there! What do ya say?!?!
Thankyou to all the wonderful people at the NBL. Our students enjoyed their visit and they learned so much. It was a very special opportunity.
