#Octopus #Rays #BabyRays #CoolFins #Sunshine
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!

Some more Instructor Specialities completed for Mads, Charlotte, Maria and Ryan too! Congratulations to them all.
Some awesome PADI #goodies for the winners of the IDC group showdown. They picked up points during the Instructor Development Course for all manner of achievements and coolness!
‘Shrimply The Best’ pipped it at the end and got the first choice of PADI #prizes whilst ‘Your Worst Anemones’ came a close second.
Well done to all.
This week is Instructor #SpecialityWeek!
Our new and excited PADI Instructors are upping their game, becoming Instructors in a multitude of PADI Specialities.
For starters this week we have already had #Deep #Wreck #DSMB #EmergencyO2 #Navigation #Nitrox #SharkAware and #CompressorOperator (a PADI Distinctive Specialty written by our very own Platinum Course Director Kim). Bring on the rest of the week!
Take 10 new #PADI #Instructors , add 2 more Instructors from a previous #IDC , a dash of #night time and you have the makings of an #awesome PADI Night #Diver Instructor #Specialty
After a busy day full of #training and #learning just enough time to squeeze in one more Specialty.
It was great to catch up with Ryan and Maria… and wishing them success on their new #adventure
After the excitement of the #PADI #IE here in #Tenerife it is time for our 10 new PADI #Instructors to make a start on some #Instructor #Specialty training with our resident PADI Platinum Course Director Kim.
Just time for a quick visual message from the latest generation of PADI Pro’s of where they would recommend to do your PADI #IDC
