"I decided to jump out of my comfort zone and went onto complete my Open Water Diver course in Bali and Tenerife with two fantastic PADI training schools… I now love being able to leave the world behind and escape to somewhere relaxing and stress-free."
Nia Walker, Facebook
"I pushed aside the inner voice that held me back, sinking into the water and letting myself embrace the deep blue horizon, appreciating the nature, wildlife, and peacefulness embedded within the ocean."
PH WK Lim, Facebook
“Getting certified PADI Open Water Diver is the perfect example of that. Letting the kids try something new and challenge themselves is the best gift I believe we, as parents, can give to them!!!”
