Utila January 2017

January 7 – April 1, 2017

Wreck and Deep Specialties, Divemaster and IDC with Underwater Vision

A three month absence from posting.  Sorry about that, I really figured I would find the time to post periodic updates from the island, and well, that just didn’t happen.  I was a busy student for that time, and managed to actually accomplished quite a number of things in the first 3 months of 2017.   

For starters, I completed two specialties, the Wreck Diver and Deep Diver specialties.  I also took 7 weeks and devoted that time to doing my PADI Divemaster (DM) certification.  Proud to report, I completed my DM in February, and graduated March 1st.  And that was just the pre-requisite for the real reason I was there… To get my PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) certification.  Then I completed the Emergency Oxygen Provider course.  In addition to those certifications, I also added some additional instructor certifications such as AWARE Coral Reef Conservation Specialty Instructor, EFR Instructor, Emergency Oxygen Provider Instructor, Peak Performance Buoyancy Instructor and Project Aware Instructor.  Damn! That’s ALOT of certifications!

I have to say, it was an amazing time spent with some excellent instructors.  The dive center I chose, Underwater Vision, has been around for many years, and is focused on a family feel with an educational environment.  

 

My IDC Classmates and instructors: Angie, Diego, Victoria, Grace, Anthony and myself.
