The French (SSI Open Water Training) Connection

Some pictures of Romain and Rachael (the latter originally from America) who came all the way from Paris to finish the second half of their SSI Open Water Diver course with the infamous Captain Paul. Having completed their SSI Open Water Referral training with Plongequilibre in Paris. The intrepid explorers and newly initiated Pirate Brethren, took sail to Bali for a taste of undersea adventures with the Pirates who Dive.

Which is a good option for some, as it allows you to not only complete the online theory and final exam in your own language. But also to to do all the confined water training/skills prior to your trip. Which then leaves you free of any classroom or pool sessions during your holidays. All you need to do is the remaining 4 dives with, shall we say US? Yes, lets say us  😉 And you’re done, SSI Open Water Diver is complete.

So a shout out to their previous instructors Erwan Rowarch and Luc Galtier at Plongequilibre in Paris (https://www.plongequilibre.com). Who did a good job teaching Romain and Rachael their in water skill. Don’t worry they didn’t embarrass you guys 😉

One of the fears of every good instructor is that your student will leave with your name on their badge….. Me I have no fear, I’m a Pirate and both Romain and Rachael did a good job on demonstrating the skills they had previously learned, and buoyancy was also good. Just don’t stop, keep diving, practice in a pool if you don’t get a chance to dive for a while.

And finally we hope to see you again some time in the future.

Winter Special–Free Try Dive

Every day, instructors Cap’n Paul and/or Wayan are standing by to share the wonders of diving with passers-by here in Pemuteran. There’s a brief orientation, some paperwork and then you can experience diving in the waters at Mucky Pirates Bay. If you’re enjoying yourself, you can immediately continue on to do an Introductory Course. This would allow you to dive to a maximum of 12 metres on any of our regular trips with an instructor or divemaster for up to 14 days. Or, if you really catch the diving bug, you can sign up for a scuba or open water diver course–which is what happened with Cornelia.

Emma from London came to Sea Rovers to dive Temple Garden, and decided to go ahead and get her Advanced Open Water certification. Today she worked with Captain Paul starting with the deep dive, and later was slated to do her Navigation and Night dives at Mucky Pirates Bay. Tomorrow she will finish up at Menjangan.

Today the Cap’n got out of the office and into the water with Wout from the Netherlands. The site he wanted to visit was Temple Garden, which is an advanced dive at 30 metres. Wout didn’t have experience with deep diving, so he took a step towards Advanced Adventurer and learned all about it from our knowledgeable and fearless leader. Both thoroughly enjoyed the dive and spotted a turtle as they headed up to their safety site–lucky buggers!
