PADI Deep Instructor Specialty on Phuket, May 2016

PADI Deep Instructor Specialty on Phuket, May 2016


Directly after the May 2016 IDC on Phuket, we conducted the PADI Deep Instructor Specialty on Phuket, May 2016 with Fabienne. Just like the actual PADI IDC, this specialty instructor training was conducted in conjunction with PADI CDC Center 'Dive Asia' on Phuket.

Both candiates, Tate and Fabienne participated in the Nitrox or Enriched Air Instructor Specialty but Tate had to leave immediately after the IDC and thus it was only Fabienne who participated in some specialty training.

At instructor level the Instructor deep Specialty consists of two dve with a PADI Course Director, so we chose a days diving at the Raya islands, with three scheduled dives for the dy, which left us with one dive just to enjoy ourselves.

During the first dive we went just short of 40 meters and had fabulous conditions, some 25 to 30 meters vizibility, very clear water indeed and a lovely dive.

The second training dive of the day went to almost thirty meters and during this dive we confucted various skills form the deep dive specialty course, like a timed skill, check color changes underwater, a navigations skill and some more.
On land Fabienne received a thorough briefing and we discussed things to keep in mind when ascending from a deep dive.
All in all a great and enjoyable days diving and it was nice to Rouz back on the boat who completed his PADI IDCS Instructor course in May during Fabienne's IDC.
