Monica and her father Antonio are here visiting Roatan from Spain, while Odryn lives here on Roatan, but has also never been diving. Together the three of them embarked on the adventure to explore Roatan's beautiful reef and for an experience of a lifetime! We started off by introducing all of them so the fundamentals of diving before teaching them how to use their scuba equipment. After that, they spent time in the shallow waters of Half Moon Bay to get comfortable with breathing underwater and practice some essential skills one needs to know how to do before they go diving.
We loved getting to see each of them build their confidence up in the shallow water before heading out on their Open Water dive. On their dive Odryn, Monica, and Antonio got to see so many fish and activity out on the reef. They started their dive in a sandy shallow area before exploring more. They all had such a good time! Odryn had so much fun he couldn't stop smiling the rest of the boat ride back to the shop! Odryn is anxious to continue learning about diving by completing his PADI Junior Open Water Certification. Even at the age of 11 years old, he meets the minimum age requirements to start learning how to dive!
Great work Monica, Antonio & Odryn on your very first scuba dive!
