What Diver’s Say

Monique was my house mate during varsity and she was always off scuba diving. As volunteer for Sea Rescue I’m always around the ocean, but now it was time for me to get under the ocean. Ever since doing my scuba courses with Monique, we often go dive together and I just love every minute spent underwater.

My Advanced course was so much fun. As a group we made it a weekend away in Simonstown and did our 5 dives over the weekend. Luckily we even got to do a night dive, but my favourite dive was definitely the wreck dive. Suck a cool experience!
