Well done to Eric, who originally signed up for a Discover Scuba program, but then enjoyed it so much that he decided to go through the full PADI OW certification course. It is really incredible to see the progress in just 3 days, from never have breathed underwater on...

 Lately while "stuck" here in the beautiful Turks and Caicos, I have been teaching Candi how to scuba dive. Her lifelong dream has been to get up close to sharks and I am very happy to say, it has been realised! As a treat, after certification I took her to a special s...
