We all remember our first dive, that first breath underwater and the excitement of discovering this new underwater planet.
Vinaka to Samantha for sharing her first experience.
HI Everyone at Subsurface,
I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone that assisted me in getting my Open Water certification. I had never dived before I did the course. I just knew I would love it, as I had been on many snorkelling trips and was always wanting to try to dive but my fear would always get the best of me. I turned 40 in July and knowing that I was coming to Fiji – this was the time to face my fears and take the plunge and I am so glad I did with your team.
I had completed the PADI elearning before I came and I finished it off with you guys at Plantation Island last week. Dan was an amazing Instructor, he was encouraging & very professional but also made it fun. He was also very patient with me. To be honest at times I was so nervous and his calm (and funny) manner & with his encouragement aloud me to push through. I was so lucky to have one on one training which I know is very rare.
It was the best experience of my life and I am so grateful to Dan and the team assisting me in reaching one of my most challenging dreams. I am now certified!!
I can’t wait to come back and dive Mamanuca Islands again see you 2 years time. You still can’t wipe the smile of my face -
