Summer Slump & Olympic Games

Kata Beach 080819_blog.JPGSummer slump!  Perfect weather, a flat sea, and unfortunately no Whale Sharks or Manta Rays in sight. So we have time to watch the Olympic Games in Beijing, cheer our national teams and watch Michael Phelps to become the most successful athlete of all times winning eight gold medals. Awesome!

Of course,  it is not completely quiet and we still spend many hours every day at the shipyard. One year has passed already since the keel-laying and in the mean while our MV Dive Asia I looks very impressive. She is getting her exterior color done and building up charisma. It's a good feeling watching her grow. Some of you have been visiting her already and your positive comments have been recognized with great pride by the team around Benno, Oiy and Bang. Every endeavor has been made to build the boat you deserve.

PADI IE Aug08_blog.JPGLast Sunday eight participants of August's IDC earned the PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor rating after successfully completing the PADI Instructor examination. Our new friends from France, England, Dubai, Austria, Switzerland and Iran worked very intensely throughout the last few weeks to archive their ultimate goal – to become a good Diving Instructor. The Instructor Development Course became another success story  because of the hard work and dedication of Course Directors Bjorn and Heinrich as well with the help of IDC Staff Instructor Nicki. Congratulations to the freshly certified PADI Instructors from all of the Dive Asia Team.
