Bei makes PADI Open Water Course after trying scuba diving!

Posted February 18th in Diving Courses

PADI Instructor Jenn has been busy taking Bei through the PADI Open Water Diver course.

Initially unsure about whether she’d enjoy scuba diving, Bei started out by making a shallow water try dive. Under close instructor supervision this gives people the chance to experience what scuba diving is like before committing to a longer course.

Bei had a great time and was keen to continue, so we credited her try dive towards the full PADI Open Water Course. Over the following three days, Bei has been trained to dive to 18M anywhere worldwide, qualifying as a PADI Open Water Diver.

Was a great few days and a lot of fun. Here are a few photos from out on the dive boat:
