Dives included a visit to SHARK BANK, BRISSAIRE ROCKS, L'ILOT Island, Grouper Point, and the ENNERDALE wreck, a Royal Auxulliary Fleet tanker that hit uncharted rocks in1970 .
The boys could not resist flying the WHITE Ensign flag on this dive!!!!. Several crew members completed PADI OPENWATER and ADVANCED OPENWATER courses during a very short visit by using the new PADI e- learning system. This on-line course allows each student to complete all course theory and exams using their ''home'' computer so only requiring time to learn all water skills and complete 4 certification dives whilst in the Seychelles.We wish them safe and enjoyable diving at future destinations as they petrol the Indian Ocean.
From 19th to 23rd April 2 full day excursions were done with picnic lunch stops taken on ''SECRET BEACH'' of Anse Duree. This ideal spot offers a beautiful sandy beach, very welcome shaded areas and a fresh water stream and small pond. Although many elected to snooze on the beach for most of the afternoon some also went for a third dive of the day.
