Congratulations to Jacques Collins for coming “home” to do his PADI Open Water and Advanced Open Water courses with Ruben at Asia Divers this past week.
jul16b1Jacques dad, Terry Collins did his Divemaster course with us along with another DM candidate Chris Viers back in 1997 and they haven’t seen each other since, but after connecting on FB they agreed to meet up ASAP. So when Jacques decided to visit the Philippines to visit the province with his Mum, Terry and Chris set a date to meet up in PG. Jacques was named after Jacques Cousteau who sadly died a few months after Jacques born.jul16b2

He was destined to become an Asia Diver from birth! The last visit to PG was when he was only 2 years old. Check out these photos of us from 1997 and the other one which was recreated this trip after he passed his Advanced Open Water course. Same location, same pose! It was wonderful to see you all back here again and hope it won’t be another 18 years…
