August visited Roatan with his parents, Karen and Eric, who were also keen to do some diving. Eric is already a certified diver, so he did some fun diving, while Karen got to experience Roatan's reefs with the PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience.
August completed his PADI eLearning ahead of time, allowing him to cut down on his classroom time and get started in the water right away. He was a very quick learner, and after practicing skills in shallow, confined water he was soon ready to go on his open water dives.
August was a joy to have around and an amazing diver from the beginning. While diving, they saw big schools of blue tang, lobsters, and tons of sergeant majors! Even though he is currently 14 years old, August was able to go down to a depth of 60ft/18m as part of his PADI Junior Open Water Diver certification, and will automatically upgrade to Open Water Diver when he turns 15. He had a great time on his course, and we can't wait to follow this family's future diving adventures.
Great work, August!
