Alderney visits Phuket.......Mike and Faith.
We are delighted that Mainbrayce owner, Mike Fitton and daughter Faith Ducat are with us and very actively involved in an intense PADI Scuba Diving programme....even now, as I write this Blog, they are studying for their Open Water programme which begins tomorrow.
This is offered free as part of your holiday here with me (if you want!!). Then, if your interest is aroused and you wish to continue, we call in the PADI Professionals and get you involved in a full blown course. It is MUCH CHEAPER here than in UK and of course you are training in warm water (30 degrees) and in usually much better visibility with up to 20 meters and more quite regularly experienced.
Anyhow...here we have Faith Ducat (L) with Mike (above) on yesterday's dive. We are concentrating on our Buoyancy Control and Diver Profile....and they are both doing very well indeed.
With limited visibility it is important to get close up to your subject and to be very aware of naughty little critters like the Ambon Scorpion fish shown above. They are very good at looking like a rock....and you will be pleased to know they hurt like F*$k if you land on them.
This shot was taken at about 10 metres depth with a slight current but terrible visibility....so the camera and then the Photoshop controls certainly come into their own...but nothing replaces buoyancy control....so you can see from this shot how well Faith is already doing!!
Scuba Diving....what a great thing to learn how to do.
