Hello!! Welcome to my blog from Paradise Divers Tenerife.
These past weeks I have finished my PADI Advance Open Water course, I choose: deep dive, buoyancy, navigation, wreck and photography. For the wreck dive we went to Tabaiba, I enjoy it a lot and we got to see little pink nudibranch, called flabelina, awesome! For the photography dive we went to Las Eras, I really liked an immersion, which we were looking for nice things to make picture to. However take pictures underwater is not that easy, because everything is moving all the time. Yet, after some editing I end up with some cool pictures.
At Paradise divers we had an 8 years old kid doing Discover Scuba Diver, I assisted Tara at the instruction. It is amazing how fast they understand and learn how to use the scuba diving equipment. For this kid it was his first time using even the fins, and it was incredible how confortable he was under the water. We had lots of fun playing with underwater toys –A rocket, Frisbee and even golf balls.
I also get to know some new dive sites (new for me) like “Cueva de los cerebros”, which is a very big cave with white sponges that look like brains. In side the cave we found 2 very big Atlantic stingrays and at least one medium one. It was amazing; we stay quite long time looking at them closely.
I am about to complete the emergency responder course, which I found extremely interesting and useful.
One friend of mine, Claudia, came to dive with us one day to celebrate her birthday. We did two pretty wonderful dives at Alcala and El Puertito. We spotted ayellow snake eel at Alcala and we play with the group of roncadores. Claudia got to meet the turtles at El Puertito, Jose came to see us couple of times. We had a very good time!
I am already studding for the rescue diver course. It is fascinating learning about the possible problems, which can occur while diving and how to solve them. I am looking forward do the practices.
Keep diving and see you next week!!!
