Intern Sam with a junior guest flanked by Instructor Wellson

Downbelow’s Instructor Wellson recently conducted a Junior Open Water Course for one of our younger guests.

Professional diving intern Sam got onboard to shadow the course and gain experience, which will be a valuable addition to her upcoming IDC.

THe Instructor Development Course, which takes place early next month, is Sam’s ticket to the professional world of scuba diving and will develop her skills to a level fit for a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor.

The PADI Instructor Exam that immediately follows the IDC will ultimately determine Sam’s fate, but with Downbelow’s resident Course Director Richard Swann and his Go Pro Team having a 100% success rate, the future looks bright.
