Awaiting the North Sea diving season our divers spend their time well on diving and safety training, practicing procedures and designing new ones but also they hardly needed maintenance of their diving gear. For dive and procedure training they visit mainly local Dutch lakes but of course they are also at the North Sea as to practice!

Saturday May 13, Divers of Ghost Fishing In collaboration with Royal Netherlands Sea Rescue Institution (KNRM) from Katwijk aan Zee, Ter Heijde, Noordwijk aan Zee and Leiden University Medical Center organized a medical rescue scenario aimed at technical divers. It was a very successful day that will bring a lot of added value to maritime safety.

We cannot wait to see them in action again!
