This week we say farewell and congratulations to Tom and David.
Both now PADI Divemasters, David is off to work in Lanzarote for a few months before joining us again next year to complete an Instructor Development Course and become a PADI Open Water Scuba Instrucor!
Tom is staying a few more days on the island before returning to Germany and also looking to do his IDC in the future.
3 New PADI Advanced Open Water Divers on their way to becoming Divemasters, next stop PADI Rescue Diver!
Janos, Eamonn and Gled completed adventure dives in Night, Deep, Navigation, Peak Performance Buoyancy and Fish Identification on the course! Well done guys.
Volunteer dog walking, good for the body and soul.
Another happy troop that will sleep well tonight after some exercise.
Oh, and more puppy photos too.
DIVER DIVER, ARE YOU OK?!!
The gang off to do day 1 of their PADI Rescue Diver Course.
Whether assisting, teaching or taking part in the course, it’s always a very rewarding challenge.
And they’re off….. for a night dive!
Sunset walk down to the beach for some PADI Night Speciality and Adventure dives.
Just a regular evening as a Divemaster Intern!
It’s always sad when someone awesome leaves us…
This time we say goodbye to Ellie who in a short few weeks became a PADI Pro and won our
award for an outstanding attitude and spirit. # BestOfTheBest
She now returns to the
and her job as a Marine Researcher after a short stop seeing family in the # Maldives . # UK
A gorgeous day in the south learning the basics of freediving with our PADI Freediving Instructor and Platinum Course Director Kim.
Static and Dynamic Apnea, rescue skills and a thorough introduction into the amazing world of freediving.
…and a surprise visit from some mermaids!
Another successful outing with the pups.
Some new faces and some old (human and kanine) some of these old boys have been there a long time…if only we could take them all home.

An eclectic mix joined us this week from all over the globe.
Good to have a smiley bunch on board.
They’ll all be working towards PADI Divemaster over the coming weeks… and Maddy joins us as a current Divemaster to get some experience over the summer!
An increadible PADI Self Reliant Diver course taught by our in house Platinum Course Director Kim.
Really good fun, and a new challenge for our PADI Instructors who signed up.
And a very cute

Another 3kg of
collected from the bay. # debris
It’s still shocking to find as much debris as we do in our Marine Protected Area. It’s about time that humans started to realise the consequences of their actions, and make the necessary change.
This week was the first of our new monthly ‘Tuesday Challenge’…
…every 3rd Tuesday of the month will have a different challenge or event for our Interns.
To kick things off we held the first ever Underwater Olympics!
Another successful doggy walk this Thursday.
The shelter has around 200 lovelies that need a home. With two van loads of interns at least 30 of them got some love attention and a nice walk.
Amazing effort on the PADI Rescue Diver Course by Harry and Ellie taught by PADI Instructor Cydney.
Congrats on becoming PADI Rescue Divers both!
A lot of new skills and in water practice means they are one step closer to Pro status, and have some great new safety skills and knowledge.
Take a look at some of the photos from the PADI Diver Propulsion Vehicle Instructor Specialty, with Rich and Jess, taught by our very own PADI Platinum Course Director, Alice.
Some favourite moments from this weeks dive briefings.
It’s good to laugh as well as work hard!!!
“I can just get lost in your eyes David”
“German effeciency in concentration mode.”
“It’s all about visulaizing the dive guys.”
“…and this line here means you will have a long and prosperous life.”
“Why is that guy taking pictures of us?”
Harry briefing last nights football scores by mistake.

It’s a hard life…

The first sighting of a new born Common Ray in the bay, with Mum keeping a watchful eye over her baby – even though they are born with full capability to fend for themselves after 9 months developing inside its mother! Abades Bay, a Marine Protected Area, is perfect for these sightings.
Captured by one of the Instructors out teaching skills to the Interns!

Congratulations to Tommy on becoming a PADI Open Water Diver!
He has taken to diving like a fish to water!
Here he is on a
Speciality, moving towards Advanced Open Water whilst making a difference by cleaning up the bay! # DiveAgainstDebris
Occasionally one of the interns at the dive centre does something very special, or goes above and beyond… or just has an amazing attitude.
On such occasions we present them with a ‘Best of the Best’ award as acknowledgement!
Congratulations to Tom! Your amazing helpfulness and attitude over the past few weeks has been awesome.
Today we welcome Tom and David (also known as Tommy) into the fold.
