Gili Air’s PADI IDC for June 2011 with Oceans 5 is under way!
Yesterday the red tape and some exams were taken care off and an afternoon PADI skill circuit completed the first day. Fanny from the Netherlands and Joeri from Belgium are taking part with Jmal from the last IDC here in April on Gili Air is giving the theory exams another go and he will sit in on all Knowledge Development, confined and open water water presentations as a refresher.
Joeri is enjoying the exams
Today we completed the remainder of the exams and more skill circuit practice was enjoyed in the fantastic Oceans 5 pool. We also have already completed two presentations by me.
The conditions are good around Gili Air, sunny days with cooler evenings and a strong wind. I enjoy being back again on this lovely island where there are no cars and no dogs!
