Two of the candidates of the recent PADI IDC on Gili Air in Indonesia continued after the IDC with Specialty Instructor training.
Scorpion fish at Halik
Tom an Fareez took the challenge and we had some real cool, interesting, relaxing, exciting and fascinating dives during which lots of new things were taught and learned.
Ornate Ghost Pipefish at Mentigi
The specialties taken up by them included Sidemount-, Wreck-, Nitrox-, Deep-, Underwater Navigation-, Underwater Naturalist-, Multilevel- and DUP diving.

We had lots of fun and over 14 dives in total, we got it all sorted. Lots of diving and lots of things to see, the pictures here are just a small sample of all the cool things we saw.

Octopus, nudibranches, turtles, white tip and black tip reef sharks, cuttle fish, ribbon eels, seahorses, sting rays and a devil scorpion fish were among the creatures and fish we spotted and these are just the ones that stood out!
