Though the first week of this month looked rather calm high season has picked up for us. We are busy busy busy, diving diving diving! All instructors make a minimum of 2 dives a day and have full groups. We start our day preparing the dive gear for the divers we already know, the students doing Open Water course or Advanced Open Water course and for our guided dives. For the new students arriving to do Discover Scuba Dives or for divers who want to rent gear to go diving on their own we fill out the paperwork and try on equipment to find the correct sizes.
At 9.00 am the first groups leave the dive center to do some diving. When the instructors return we quickly rince all gear that was used, only to pack it again for the next groups that are already waiting to go diving. And this pattern repeats itself another time later in the afternoon.
In the meantime we are filling tanks, selling equipment and scheduling more dives. And, oh, how we are enjoying ourselves!!! Busy busy busy, diving diving diving also means meeting great new people, teaching our passion and encountering beautiful creatures underwater. What better way to spend your day??
These past few weeks we had the honor to take our guests for a Discover Scuba Dive, showing them why diving is so much fun and why we love it. Some of them chose to do a repeat DSD, or even do the full Open Water course. So we certified quite some Open Water divers and Jr. Open Water divers also. And we did a lot guided dives, in which we always try to find something special. This week was dominated by turtles, seahorses and frogfish, so we are not complaining and neither are our divers!
For now I wish you all a lot of fun looking at all the pictures and movies we posted and are going to post and I go back to being busy busy busy, diving diving diving!
