It’s been a few days since we’ve had a chance to provide you with an update on our diving. The course is spread over 4 days, four confined dives learning all the basic skills and 2 open water dives and an exam at the end.
It’s a bit difficult to concentrate in 38 degrees, having to read a book, complete chapter revisions and mini quizzes. Although so far, it’s going really well and we’re thoroughly enjoying it – but we are bush whacked come 9pm.
We’ve been up for breakfast most morning at 7am, all kitted out at 8/8:30 and in the water for 9. The afternoon is scheduled for further dives, study and revision etc. We normally finish at 6/7pm, then off to the bar for a beer with all the other divers.
Some pictures of us grasping the basic skills such as neutral buoyancy. Visibility is poor, as the confined shore dives are completed in an area where boats are whizzing by constantly. No doubt there will be many more photos to follow.
