And so the end of another fantastic #PADI #IDC here in #Tenerife
Our 6 #candidiates have performed incredibly well and with many highs and a couple of lows, they have grown into very accomplished PADI ##Pros
We are proud to have been part of their journey so far and wish them the best of success in the #IE tomorrow and Sunday.
PADI Instructor Development Course Day 9
The final presentations today for our candidates. They have worked hard and are ready for the PADI Instructor Exam this Saturday and Sunday.
Let’s have another look at some of the moments over the past two weeks.
PADI Instructor Development Course Day 8
Some great scores today as we finish the Open Water Teaching segment of the IDC.
The last few presentations now as the last day approaches before one last study day and then the #IE!
Time to turn up the heat and let the new (almost) #PADI #Instructors meet the new main man in town….. !
Our #IDC Candidates had the pleasure of being introduced to the new PADI Territory Director for our region Sascha.
Sascha has just been promoted to the position and we look forward to working with him for many years.
The IDC Team had the opportunity to hear a presentation prepared by our #TD discussing the merits of Continued Education ( #ConEd ) at #Instructor level and about the other aspects of being an Instructor some of them may not have thought of!
Sascha finished off with wishing them the best of success at the forth coming #IE
Thank you for taking time out and chatting to the next Generation of PADI Pros and we will see you soon Mr TD 😎

We had the pleasure of having Mike join us to do his PADI Open Water certification with PADI Instructor Jess!
Pictured here with his brother Geoff who over the past year has reached PADI Rescue Diver with us.
Amazingly Jess assisted as a Divemaster Trainee on Geoff’s Open Water Course and a year later has certified his brother Mike. #YouGoGirl #TheCircleIsComplete #Padawan
Anyone know the species?
Frankie spotted this fella swimming past us at El Poris.
Loggerhead? Flatback? Kemps Ridley?
Well done to Frankie for completing her PADI Divemaster this week. She now is one of the many awesome PADI Pro’s around the world.
And congratulations to Richard for completing his PADI Scuba Diver course. Welcome to the underwater world!!!

Congratulations to Aaron, Isa, Cliff and Celestine for continuing their PADI journey. They now have experience in a variety of underwater disciplines #Wreck #Deep #Navigation #PPB #Shark #Night #FishID
A lot of fun and marine life along the way!
Another great PADI Digital Underwater Photography Course with Oli our in house camera man.
Alicia and Marius were a little freaked out holding his camera #YouBreakItYouBuyIt hahaha
Good fun and some excellent tips and tricks for better photo’s with a few really nice shots from both… and Oli took a few good ones too.
It’s like Charlie’s Angels but underwater!

Interns out cleaning up our local bay on their #ProjectAware Dive Against Debris Speciality…
…They are constantly keeping the bay clean anyway so why not get a #Specialty to acknowledge it!
Some more summer farewells!
Congrats to Sam, Finn, Marius and Tiarnan for becoming PADI Divemasters and starting their professional diving journey!
Sam and Finn return to their dive club in Ireland full of PADI knowledge, Tiarnan also leaves for Ireland and Marius to the UK. We are hoping to see all four back for an Instructor Course soon.
Some shots from our recent specialty dives including PADI Digital Underwater Photography with Alicia and Marius.
This means they are now also Master Scuba Divers along with Tiarnan, Finn and Sam!
Some lovely sunlight, Octopus, Hermit crabs, Pearly Razorfish, Bandtail Puffers, Streaked Gurnards, Flounders, Turtles, Statues and more!
Awesome dive with the Interns at El Poris.
Gorgeous light, Octopus, Turtle, swimthrough …
We had it all whilst conducting PADI Naturalist, Fish ID, Deep and Photography Specialties with Marius, Frankie, Tiarnan, Alicia and Sam.
The Interns out doing their AWARE Shark Conservation Specialty
… getting in the mood and channeling their inner shark with everyone’s favourite song!
We are blessed to have our home reef frequented as a safe haven and breeding spot for Angel Sharks; a beautiful and critically endangered species.
Goodbye or Farewell…
Let’s say ‘see you later’ to Toni! Off back to #France for a few months before joining us again to become a PADI Open Water #Scuba #Instructor.
I think it’s safe to say we have him #hooked (pun intended).
Alicia and Tiarnan on the way up. Rescue done…. Divemaster begun! Let’s go!!!
Looking proud with their new PADI Divemaster packs. A bag full of knowledge and possibilities!

After a PADI Basic Freediver course they guys strapped on some mono fins and mermaid tails for some underwater fun on the Distinctive PADI Mermaid Diver Specialty.
A popular course here for Freediving enthusiasts and Scuba Divers alike. Written by our very own Platinum Course Director Kim!
Where else can you become a mermaid or merman?!
He received his PADI Divemaster pack and is on the final leg of his Internship….
….but only the start of his new diving life!
9 amazing young Germans joined us to try #Scuba #Diving yesterday!
They have given up a week of their summer holiday to fly over from #Germany and volunteer at our local #dog #shelter Aktion Tier Acción Del Sol
They had a morning cooling off with us under the water before we all went back to walk some dogs in the afternoon.
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.
Congratulations to Finn and April for becoming PADI Search and Recovery Specialty Divers today!
Lots of search patterns and lifting objects in some wavy conditions. Good going!
