Shannon PADI AOW

Well done to Shannon and Sabrina for their successful completion of the PADI Advanced Open Water Course.  Shannon was the first one to book the course, and Sabrina was just out for a fun dive and a refresher, but she decided to continue with her training!!  Both students did an outstanding job in her training!!

Both students decided to do the Buoyancy, Navigation, Deep, Night, Digital

Photography dives.  Both students demonstrated early on that they had no difficulties at all in their skills.  Their buoyancy was good but did improve over their series of dives, and when it was time to do the Digital Photography dives they had no problems setting up and taking some great pictures.

During the night dive, both students had indicated they were a little nervous, but they met the challenge with no problems, and we were able to get a full 60 minute dive in and we were lucky and saw some cool critters.  Well done to both students!!


SSI Open Water Diver

Mikko SSI Open Water

Mikko came and found UWE and EcoSea Dive and decided he was wanting to do his Open Water training.  So off he went on down the training road to becoming a certified diver.  Mikko rose to the the challenge made short work of the day of academics which challenged him in the ares of Physics, Physiology and Buoyancy.  Well done Mikko, did an excellent job mate!!

Day two and three had Mikko out in the water working on his confined water skills, with skills such as mask clearing, regulator recovery, out of air drills, and buoyancy control.  Mikko demonstrated from early on he was a natural, and he certainly did excel in all areas of his training!! Once we hit the Open Water dives, he was simply one of the fun divers, as he was able to demonstrate excellent skills all the way through.  Well done to you Mikko, I hope you are out there diving like crazy buddy!!


A New SSI Stress & Rescue Diver


UWE and EcoSea Dive are very excited to congratulate Jarred for completing his SSI Stress & Rescue Course with us.  Well Done to Jarred!!

Day o1 was in the class room going over the Stress & Rescue video and all of the various knowledge reviews.  Then we discussed how we were going to conduct the program!  Jarred was a natural, and had little trouble with any of the knowledge reviews, and as I suspected when he made it to the water he was a natural all the way around.

Day 02 had us head off into the confined water skills, and Jarred did an excellent job, having very little trouble on any of the things that he needed to do.  Though, there was a bit of an issue completing the  timing count….which is a bit of a mouth full for all students.

Day 3, had the open water scenarios going on and Jarred got the count working for him and did an amazing job with the in water rescues.

Well done to all who assisted and took part in his training!!

2 New Advanced Adventurers!!


UWE and EcoSea Dive are very excited to announce we have two new SSI Advanced Adventure Divers.  Ed and Ida came to us wanting to complete their course.  So into the classroom we went.  Unlike many, UWE shows all the movies and do all the knowledge reviews for the Advanced dives as if you were doing the full specialty.  We feel more information is better then less!!

Ida and Ed decided they wanted to do the Deep, Navigation, U/W Photography, Perfect Performance Buoyancy and the Night & Low Visibility dives.  It was

Ed SSI Advanced Adventure

nice seeing both students improving their diving technics as well as becoming more and more confident.

During the night dive, we were treated to a beautiful show from two different Octopi and one cuttle fish.  I have to saw their were big big smiles at the end of that dive.

Well done to both students!! Safe travels!

New SSI Open Water Divers

Katie SSI Open Water

UWE and EcoSea Dive are very excited to announce that we have a ned Open Water Diver.  Ms Katie came out and hit us with storm and she flew through her training with no troubles what-so-ever!!

Day 1, had Katie breezing through the book work.  She made easy work of the knowledge reviews, and was very fast to pick up on the Dive computers section.  When it came to exam time, she made short work of it, and put away a passing mark without even breaking a sweat!! Well done!

Day 2 and 3 had us out on the island.  We started off with the Confined Water skills which Katie showed she had no troubles completing so it was simple to get Open Water 1 and 2 completed.  On the third day, Katie volunteered to help out and be a casualty during the Rescue course that Jarred was working on.  She once again made easy work of the Open Water Divers skills, so she then once completed became a drowning casualty that Jarred had to react too.

Well done Katie and thank you so much for the assistances!!! Safe travels!!!!

We Have Three New Dive Masters


UWE and EcoSea Dive are very excited to announce that we have three new Dive Master.  Emilie, Andy, and Christina successfully completed their Dive Master Internship at the end of April, after three very hard working months with EcoSea Dive.

Andy and Emilie, joined up on Jan, which Emilie already being an Open Water diver, and Andy hold no certification at all, so for him he started and the very beginning.  Both Emilie and Andy did a fantastic job with their training.  Emilie, excelled in the booking office, and being a native French speaker she helped my on many many courses translating my English and very poor French into a usable and successful team training many students who were in their own


right French speakers.

Andy, not to be out done joined in on many of the Specialty courses as my Dive Master. He

learned quickly and had not problems adapting as the course went on.  He was called in to assist in many of the SSI courses I taught even though he was doing his training as a PADI Dive Master.

Christina, was a natural, she can certain organize and lead in order to get the job completed.  She joined in the training as an Open Water diver.  She successfully completed


all of the courses that were required to get her to the DM level.  She made short work of the academics, and put the time need to lead dives, and supervise certified divers.  Overall she did an excellent job!

Well done, and congratulations to all of the new Dive Master.  It was truly a joy to work and train with you.  I would like to wish you all the greatest success in the future!!
