A few days ago the current PADI IDC in Moalboal, Philippines was completed and tomorrow the PADI IE starts, what better way of making best use of time by conducting PADI Specialty Instructor Training March 2015 in Moalboal, Philippines for a couple of days in conjunction with PADI 5* IDC Center 'Neptune Diving Adventure'.

During the PADI Specialty Instructor Training March 2015 in Moalboal, Philippines, Christophe and Steve took a few courses together with Christophe taking full advantage of the MSDT prep course, which means 5 PADI Instructor specialties plus the free Enriched Air Instructor specialty that's included in our PADI IDC. His specialties of choice were Deep-, Digital Underwater Photography (DUP)-, Underwater Navigation-, Side mount- and Emergency Oxygen Provider (EOP) instructor specialties.
Steve participated in the Deep-, Underwater Videography- and Enriched Air Instructor specialties.

We dove on the Neptune House reef for most of the dives, exploring the deeper parts of the reef with the sardine ball accompanying us on each dive. We also visited Dolphin House which has excellent quality coral and no surprise here, this was for the Photography and Videography dive. We also went to Moalboal Bay for the Underwater Navigation dive, the same dive site which will be used during the PADI IE.
We enjoyed relaxed dives with lots of new things to learn and look out for with good visibility and hardly any current to speak of. Really enjoyable couple of days of diving, thank you guys!

Looking forward seeing you there.
