Photos from Dive Master trainee Maria

Maria came to us  to complete  her Dive Master e learning  course . Working in London she only had a few week of holiday time  but she worked very hard    and completed all required water skills, scenarios and did lots of dives with certified divers and assisting our Instructors with many courses .
 We feel that in just a few weeks she managed to get a great deal of practical experience  and has become  an excellent Dive Master .
  During her  stay she had a friend fly in from Japan  for just a few days amazing friend in deed to travel so far fro just a few days visit!

 See below some of her photos and memories of her stay with us ¬!

Bye Bye to Anne and Thomas

Once again we have been happy to do many dives with Anne and Thomas ...a total of 46 dives during their short stay with us . Amazing  love of diving !!!

Hope to see you again  soon.

Dive Mater trainees hard at work

We offer morning  dive trips with 2 different dive sites  from 9am check into 1pm return .
 This means putting the second dive tanks onto the boat before departure .
 Today I manged to photo Dylan hard at work !!

Calm conditions allow divers to  access the boats easily 

Thank you from BUBBLE MAKER student

Evening Glynis,
Rhys had a great time today with Ruby, thank you. In his words, she was calm and easy going and that it felt more like play than work (learning). He had a fun and positive experience which is exactly what we had hoped for. Glad we picked your dive shop.
kind regards, Steve

Alternative use of equipment wash basins

 Instructor Sabrina has 2 boys, Kelvin and Cleven  at primary School  which gets out at around 3pm.

Their love of water is quite obvious and they have found alternative uses for the equipment washing bins after a day of diving !

Ongoing maintenance

I want to thank Kevin for doing all the little not so nice  jobs that no one really wants to do !
Wash basin cleaning

Water and humidity can cause unpleasant stains!   Lots of scrubbing  works well

When divers take photos I always ask if they can send me a few for the blog .........and Karin and Olaf have done just that .
