Starting SCUBA!

As part of our extracurricular activities this year the children will be completing their SCUBA certification and participating in a monthly dive.  We are well on our way.

We started with lessons in a classroom:

Then suited up and left for the pool:

Marco  and I completed all of our confined water skills, and we all passed our written exam.  We were back again the following day to complete two open water dives.

Madison, meanwhile, practiced her snorkeling and received instruction on driving the boat - a 42 ft dive boat - from the Captain.  She took us from the harbour to the dive site and from the dive site into the harbour and right up to the bridge!

  1. Nice work all with the SCUBA lessons and passing the exams. When I am next there I look forward to heading out for another dive.
