Congratulations to new PADI Divemasters: Lachy, Jonny, Berting and Gery! With a record-breaking 4 graduates, of course we were in for an awesome party! The boys did a great job completing their snorkel tests, administered by Chris and Andrew, and were awarded with their Calypso Pro Graduate t-shirts. From everyone at Calypso, big congrats DMs and enjoy your diving!
“Yes i am living the scuba dream and my Instructor Development program in Calypso starts now! And I am as happy as a diver can be! But first things first… I’ll need to reacquaint myself with all the diving theory and skills before starting the IDC course – and one of the topics is PHYSICS (my favorite subject!) The sport of diving involves dealing with an environment that is not natural to us humans, much like an Astronaut in space. Underwater, everything is different… We know that water is much denser than air, and that the formula is ‘H-i-j-k-l-m-n-O’ Get it? H to O! As intimidating as it may sound, it is fun to study it in relation to diving, because our senses underwater work in ‘mysterious’ ways; we hear, feel and see things differently underwater. Studying these things is an integral part of scuba diving. I am thankful to my Course Director Sue and to Master Instructor Andrew for taking extra time to show me and teach me how physics can be fun! I’m having a blast so far. Until next time… remember ‘never hold your breath!’…”
CONGRATULATIONS to new PADI Instructor NICO! From Sue, Andrew, Rene, the Calypso staff and the pro trainees who helped out, well done. Looking forward to the Nitrox and O2 Instructor courses after a well-earned few days rest…
Well done to Chasper and Jo-Jo for completing their PADI Divemaster training!
After some great dives or a swim in the ocean, enjoy this cool game called Kubb. Introduced to us by Chasper, it is a game of knocking down wooden blocks using sticks. The rules are easy and it is such good fun! An ideal relaxing team game to play over a sunset beer.
Congrats to Lilian and Takenaka, PADI Divemasters who completed the DM Advancement program with EFR Instructor, PADI O2 Provider Instructor and PADI Digital Underwater Photography Instructor courses. Thanks for the fun taking the shark image for CITES, and for creating some lovely underwater photos – great dives!
Chasper – Live The Scuba Dream winner – has started his Divemaster training, assisted on courses (including his sister’s PADI Open Water), got some cool marine life photos, helped out with coral planting, and secured his first Shuffleboard tournament win! Wow, what a month!!! Here’s a few photos:
Well done to Kai who recently completed his PADI Divemaster program and snorkel test administered by mentor Andrew! From the whole Calypso Team, it’s been a lot of fun and congratulations DM!!
