Well after a busy week with Rescue Training last week, this week the Divemasters interns have been sitting in on Discover Scuba Diver Courses, guiding dives, completing skill circuits, try diving in the pool and completing their Emergency First Response practical.
SO what have we done? Wll the week started with Josh & Marcus from Brighton who joined us for some Discover Scuba Diving with Neil & Sam. The lads did a good job but Josh decided it was not for him! So Neil, Sam & Marcus went of down to El Puertito to see the Turtles, they were also joined by John who had been diving with us last week.
The visibility was not so great but that did not stop the turtles from wanting to play! We saw 4 turtles in total and everyone was over the moon :)
We have also been round the see the sting rays a lot this week, one time we had NONE, the next we had 4 large atlantic Rays! can't win them all...
We had Dannii doing her PADI Deep Diver Specialty with Iain, this was dive 2 and Dannii is doing really well and will have this certification soon to add to her Enriched Air Nitrox. Dannii is going for her Master Scuba Diver Certification alongside her Divemaster.
We had a young lady with us this week for a DSD in the pool, her name is Lucy and she was an absolute natural in the pool. Lucy has had swimming lessons at home in the UK and is an excellent swimmer and so diving was the next thing on her list of 'to do's' She had a great lesson in the pool with Neil and managed the skills really well. She was slightly worried about the sea as it would be deeper, so instead we cam back the next day and had another session in the pool with Mary and played some underwater games.
Lucy was a star and we hope to see her soon with her new gaind confidence and go to the sea :)
Sam has been getting used to using his PADI Instructor Manual with some 'lovely' homework regarding the PADI Standards & procedures in preparation for his Divemaster exams.
Sam has been a great student and is doing really well. He is enjoying his time with Amarilla Divers he is learning new things and diving loads, he now only has a few weeks left and we will keep you updated.
Next blog we will introduce our NEW Divemaster Intern to you all, so pop back soon
