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 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).
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.
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!
