I have always known about scuba diving but I never had a chance to learn about it. Until finally one day I had been invited to have a DSD session with a few other friends conducted by Mr Sanjay Vaghasia. After that 1st session, I got addicted and so I sign up for the course Open Water.
getting ready for my 1st dive
Finally after all the training at pool, it was time for the real Open Water experience at sea at Payar Island Langkawi, I was so excited about it. This was because not only it would be my 1st open water scuba but also it was my 1st time arrived to Langkawi.
As part of the 2014 DDI material updates, we are effective today releasing a new non-professional free when registered scuba diving program to all DDI Assistant Instructors and higher.
The "DDI Adaptive Diver", is an entry level DDI course building on top of regular diving training, designed for disabled diver students and/or their buddies who are learning to scuba dive or recently completed their scuba diving course.
For the student the course teaches him/her how to adapt their own abilities and equipment, before, during or after a scuba/open water diving course from any EUF/ISO certified scuba diving training organization (i.e. DDI, PADI, SSI, NAUI, CMAS, PDA).
An experience from 2009 which I will share with you ...
A little while ago, I was contacted by a father who wanted to start a swimming club for children with muscular atrophy. He has a 10 year old son who has this disability. He contacted me because he was interested in the possibility of setting up a try-dive for these children.
