Oh and the bell was ringing! This lot decided to celebrate the New Year for a second time… for most of the evening on the 1st. Many bottles, many rings and a few very sheepish looking ladies the next day. All good fun.

Something new for us at Asia Divers: We’re very excited to announce that we’ll now be teaching the PADI Basic Freediver and the PADI Freediver courses.

Freediving is about inward power, discipline and control. If you’ve always wanted to enter the underwater world quietly, on your own terms, staying as long as your breath allows, then freediving is for you.

Plus it’s a whole new beginning of really cool gear! For more information contact us at instructors@asiadivers.com and see course details on our Freediver Courses page

We’re very excited to welcome three new mermaids into scuba diving. Sarah Fenwick and two sisters, 13 year old Katie and 14 year old Ella Callahan completed their PADI Open Water course with Elly. They worked really hard to achieve this goal and even went through a bit of a tough logistics day because of some bad weather…but they did it, and should all be very proud! Congratulations ladies!

Congratulations Jobert Tapia (Cody) on your Rescue Diver Certification (with EFR Primary and Secondary care with AED! Now, on to your Divemaster! It was a fun course with Arthur Nash who is almost done as well.

This was a great example of team teaching here as Matt did the EFR courses for both Arthur and Cody and Pete and Matt both got involved with the Rescue course. Matt is now an Assistant instructor and very soon will be an Instructor, so he got some great experience in team teaching with Pete.
