As we have talked about it before, starting diving can seem like a scary challenge sometimes. During September we had two guests who faced this challenge full on.
Since many years these two guys had a special relationship with diving, independently from each other. Bernd was dreaming of becoming a diver ever since he made a discovery dive a decade ago. He is quite an adventurous guy – he loves paragliding, motorbiking and skiing. Axel on the other hand is passionate about water sports – snorkeling, sailing and swimming… you name it. But diving, he was curious but doubtful if he would be able to dive.
The charm of Camiguin diving
Last year Michele told Axel about a student who pushed through with the Open Water Diver course with us, in spite of the initial fears. This made Axel more comfortable, so he went to see a physician for his medical check up. Approved! Next step, to book a ticket to Camiguin and reserve a course with Arno.
In their two weeks with us, both of them could simply not get enough of the underwater magic of Camiguin Island. Axel logged 14 dives and Bernd even did his Advanced Open Water Diver with us and made 18 dives in total. Impressive!
And guess who is visiting us next May for some further dives…. Exactly. It was a big pleasure to have you with us and we look forward to seeing you both next year.
