Diamond divers

venture out when the weather is calm, occuring a couple of times a month.

Using a small boat, those local divers set out during the day, they anchor less that a kilometer from the shore, and dive in wa water depth between 0-12 meters. They stay out a similar length of time as an inshore fisherman would and return home at the end of the day. The equipment on a boats is made by people of the local communities. Some teams don't use a boat at all and the divers swim into the water straight off the shore.
