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.
