Action packed August
We have yet again finished of another month of the year 2015, time seems to be going faster and faster as we near towards the New Year. This month especially was packed with adventure seekers from all over the world. We began the month head strong and fully immersed into every second of the working day. Our lovely boat Loona was packed out with fun divers from all corners of the world and breaking through the waves all morning, afternoon and night. This was of course a perfect welcome for our new instructor Roman who had finally arrived on the island from Ukraine, as he got to experience a diving environment that was not below 20 degrees and 5 meter visibility which was what he was accustomed to.
It was a lovely surprise to see Dominique and his son Guillaume only just a few months after their last visit in March and even nicer to take them on double tank dives every morning for the two weeks that they were here. Joining them was also a lovely family from Japan, Yuji, Akiko, Moeka and Yukino who also fell in love with our ocean while diving with Instructor Hiro. There was also Benita and Po Lock from sunny England, Po Lock was truly an inspiration to all of us, at 76 years old he was still out in the deep blue sea and making the most of what Mother Nature has created. We hope that we still hold the same passion and energy when we have gone over the hill. New Advanced Open Water Diver, Ma Jun from China who had stopped by the Dive Center before even checking into his room also wanted to make the most of his four day stay on the island, and jumped on every dive boat possible. Lastly, we also had Sergey and Timofey Dubik from Moscow, Russia joining in on all the action. They decided to take a step further into the diving community and complete their Advanced Open Water course with instructor Iru. We had five incredible dives with them, not to mention the last dive at Sunset Faru where we cruised along the reef with underwater scooters and were embraced with five spinner dolphins curiously circling us. Needless to say, there was a lot of screaming with happiness from Instructor Iru.
To finish of this action packed month Instructor Dong Dong finally had a chance to practice his Espaņol with beautiful couple Juan and Patricia from Peru, after a Discover Scuba Diving lesson, seņor Juan decided to do a Scuba Diver course! We also had two lovely sisters Jana and Lily from Germany, both were very keen divers. Jana completed her Junior Open Water Course with Instructor Sandy and little Lily of 8 years old did bubble maker in our house reef with all the instructors here at the dive center before she was satisfied.
It has finally slowed down a little in the last few days, giving us time to catch up on some background office work and finally take a few days of for relaxation and rehabilitation. Until next month happy divers!
