Sarah and Tyler were here on Roatan for the first time with other members of their family who are already certified divers, so the Discover Scuba Dive was the perfect opportunity for the family to share in a group activity! Sarah had gone snorkeling off our boat the day before which gave her a great sneak peek at the reef and all of its activity! To start things off, we began by briefing them both on essential diving knowledge and teaching them about their equipment and how it works. After a full briefing it was time for Tyler and Sarah to get in the shallow waters of Half Moon Bay so they start by practicing breathing underwater and a few essential skills.
They did great in confined water and before you know it, it was time for them to go diving! The whole family went out to the same dive site and while some of our staff took out the certified divers for a "fun dive", we also took Sarah and Tyler around to a lovely dive site with so much to see! They both did a fantastic job on their very first dive! There were big schools of blue tang, parrotfish, and loads of healthy coral. After the dive Tyler and Sarah could see why the rest of their family enjoyed diving so much!
Since they had such a fun time trying out diving, Sarah and Tyler went out for one more additional dive along with Megan. We really enjoyed having them here and getting to know them both in and out of the water. Hopefully one day in the future Tyler and Sarah might pursue their full Open Water certifications and join the rest of the family in their love of blowing bubbles!
Well done Sarah and Tyler!
