I went for my scuba refresher in May as I haven't dived in 5 years!
The staff were excellent and instantly made you feel welcome and part of a great group.
They started with the health check and double checked I was ok after suffering from pneumonia for the previous 5 weeks - very caring and attentive.
Once that was out of the way, a quick quiz to check on my knowledge... (God knows how I remember some of this stuff from 5 years ago!) - they explain each answer in layman terms.
Then we got to the fun part.... the practical! I forgot how much I missed diving (even just swanning around in a swimming pool) and the instructor checked to see how much I could remember rather than tell me what to do in terms of putting the scuba kit together and where I made a mistake he would point it out and double checked I understood what he told me.
Then once we were in the pool the instructor would give me 2 or 3 tasks to do underwater and then come up for the next 3 tasks.
At all times I felt completely safe as the instructor was so reassuring and his air of confidence rubbed off on me.
Once we finished, the instructor updated my scuba log book and now I'm ready to rock and roll in South Africa with Broadnose 7 Gill sharks and Great White sharks and Egypt - the Red Sea!
Bring it on!
Thank you Scuba Scene! :-)
Once I get back into the UK, I will look at doing some more trips to the Red Sea.
