Lance came down with his family to visit and get certified by his sister, Lauren, who is part of the Roatan Divers team. By completing his PADI eLearning ahead of time, he cut down on his classroom time and was able to get started in the water right away.
Lance was comfortable and confident in the water from the start. He was full of excitement and enthusiasm at getting to explore Roatan's amazing underwater world. On his dives he saw several turtles, lionfish, a Queen triggerfish and his favorite sighting, a nurse shark! Even though he is currently 14 years old, Lance was able to go down to a depth of 60ft/18m as part of his PADI Junior Open Water Diver certification. He had a great time on his course and his sister Lauren was so very proud of him.
Lance hopes to come back to Roatan in the future and is eager to get his license to officially hunt lionfish. Way to help us protect the reef!
Good work Lance!
