Congratulations to Chris, our newest Divemaster!

Chris Stephenson has enjoyed his recent visit P.G. to complete his Divemaster course with Troy. He ticked off all the boxes and ended his time here with the usual celebration up in the Point. Ichi started his DM course together with Chris and it was very fitting that Ichi was back here at the same time to help with the celebrations! We’ll see Chris back here very soon to do the next IDC…

Family fun at El Galleon

The Scheuder family had a great vacation this week with them all deciding to take part in the PADI Scuba Diver Course. It was filled with ups and downs quite literally, as a storm passed through making the sea conditions quite challenging and adding to the adventure. Congratulations to Gilles Scheuder, Maarten Schreuder, Anniek Schreuder, Henrik Schreuder and Jolanta Klessens.

Divemaster training at Asia Divers

Chris has been happily working through his Dive Master Course with Troy. Having just completed the search and recovery dive, he can now effectivly seach for and find any lost items that may have been droped, a very important skill as a Dive master. Stay tuned for the dive master party coming up soon.  Asia Divers is a great place to move up the PADI ladder to the pro levels. We’ve got a great facility, some super instructors and some fine places to socialize in the evenings!
