New addition Liz on the left, with Sara behind, Leanne right and resident PADI Course Director Richard not looking worried at all

Girl Power currently rules the scuba diving roost at Downbelow’s PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre on Gaya island in Sabah, Borneo with no less than 3 professional lady scuba diving interns.

Resident PADI Course Director Richard Swann is taking charge of their diver education and is keeping a close watch on the lasses who he describes as “mischievous”.

Newest addition to the sisterhood is Liz Street, originally from Malaysia, but joining us from where she lives in the UK.

She’s in it for the long run here in Sabah, Borneo with a 3 month internship.

Liz starts off with the PADI Rescue Diver course and will go all the way to PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor during our next PADI IDC, staying on for 5 Speciality Instructor level courses to finish off as a PADI MSDT (Master Scuba Diver Trainer).
