It’s been great to have Heneage “H”, Peter and Philip Mitchell with us this past. “H” is a long time friend of ours and we were thrilled that he was able to come here with the boys to get them certified. Both Peter and Philip worked hard and did really well on their PADI Open Water course with Maria. A big congratulations you guys! It was also great that Snake was here to be part of the fun!

Happy birthday Rene!

What’s been happening at Asia Divers & El Galleon Dive Resort?

Peter decided that he wanted to keep submerged and do his PADI Advanced course. Now he leaves here with another certification and quite chuffed that his ears are being cooperative!

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.
