He received his PADI Divemaster pack and is on the final leg of his Internship….
….but only the start of his new diving life!
Is that Benicio Del Toro?…
…Even better it’s our PADI Regional Manager, Gorka!
We would like to thank Gorka for taking time out to come and chat with our Divemaster Trainees about becoming PADI Pro’s.
At the end there was a short Q&A session, and then it was time for Pete and Kim to discuss mutually beneficial opportunities in the Canary Islands with the #PADI #RM.
A big group leave us today as PADI Divemasters!
Congratulations to Gledis, Janos, Mat, Stjepan, Emir, Seven and Eamonn! #Albania #Hungary #Poland #Croatia #Turkey #Ireland

Eamonn joined an elite group this week and became a PADI Master Scuba Diver the highest elite recreational level you can reach!
Here he is on his Diver Propulsion Vehicle Specialty with PADI MSDT, Jess. You need a total of five specialty’s to attain this coveted level.

Sunset walk down to the beach for some PADI Night Speciality and Adventure dives.
Just a regular evening as a Divemaster Intern!

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 #Baby #CommonRay at the end is always a #Bonus
Best wishes to our amazing MSDT Jess who turned 20 today!!!
Some little pressies and cake in the Dive Centre today!
She’s come on leaps and bounds and achieved a great deal for someone so young. A brilliant Instructor and important part of the team.
Have you ever wanted to feel completely free and at peace in the ocean…
…to push your limits and go beyond what you thought was possible…
…to swim naturally with turtles and rays, unhindered by equipment.
Another 3kg of #debris collected from the bay.
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. #SafetyFirst
Ever wondered what it would be like to become a PADI Scuba Instructor?
Sit back, turn the sound up, and find out how our Candidates, on one of our PADI IDC’s, felt about their experience on the journey to becoming a PADI Pro.

A few weeks after the PADI Instructor Examination and our candidates are enjoying the fruits of their labours.
Sad to see them go but super happy for all who took the brave decision to change their life and #GoPro, you won’t regret it!
Charlotte and Mads have coupled up and are off to find work in the Med…

Another two Emergency First Responders in the world!!
What an amazing thing to develop skills and knowledge that could, one day, save someone’s life.
Well done to Harry and Ellie for passing the Primary and Secondary Care course on their journey to PADI Pro.
A beautiful young Angel Shark spotted by Rich and Michelle in the bay!!! 😁😁😁We surmise from it’s behaviour that it was playing hide and seek with friends.
A rare and special sighting this time of year for this critically endangered species. 🦈
