PADI certifications as 03/18

Finally in March 2017 I began my PADI SCUBA training. I’d given learning to dive a go in 2012, but due to an existing back injury I didn’t feel comfortable when it came to the confined dive component. Fast forward five years and I was determined to conquer my concerns and became a qualified Open Water Diver (It wasn’t smooth sailing, a bung ear on day 2 of my open water dives meant postponing the final two dives, but all of that story will be covered in the Crete blog).

UPDATE: As 10/06/2018 I have now completed my Dry Suit, and Advanced Open Water certifications. The AOW dives included Deep/Navigation/Peak Performance Buoyancy/Wreck/Digital Underwater Photography Adventure dives. I’m hoping to complete PPB, Wreck, DUP, and perhaps Navigation certifications this year.
