The last few days went really quick and before we knew it the day of the exam was here. After the Theory exams we had to change the original plan as the south wind started to blow. The Lighthouse was definitely not “confined water” anymore so we actually went to the Red C Villas. The candidates were all of a sudden really well organized, as the temperature of the pool was 5 degrees less than the sea!!

Then we went back to the classroom for more presentations and finished quite early for the day. A big thank you to Examiner Nicole for her great organisation.

The next morning the Lighthouse was almost back to normal – well at least the weather was. So the Open Water and Rescue presentations could be done as planned.

So congratulations to all the new PADI Instructors in Dahab!!!! Well done everyone – specially Noora, Eddie, Urchin and Ortega from Sea Dancer Dive Center!! You guys made me proud!!!!

Also a huge congrats to Sami and Andrew for becoming a PADI Staff Instructor!!! It was fun having you in the course!! Looking forward to many more!!!

Check out the photos Sami took over the last couple of days!!! Thank you so much Sami for taking them!!!

The last few days went really really fast!!! We had some great presentations in the classroom and also brilliant scores in the water. But of course it was not easy all the way thru!!! There were a few scores of 1 – but as I always say – I rather have the one in the IDC…

So in two days time we will be in the middle of the IE!! Don’t worry guys! You are ready for it!!

The hard work over the last couple of weeks paid off!!

Now the only thing I can say is:

The best of success to all IE candidates for the last IE of the year in Dahab from all of us at Sea Dancer Dive Center!!!!

Ah and of course: Congratulations to the new PADI Staff Instructors Sami & Andrew!! Well done guys! It was great to have you on the IDC!!

Hard to believe that this year is almost finsihed again!!! The years seem to go faster and faster!! Good that we don’t get any older :-)

So two more days until we start the last IDC of 2016!! Preperations have been going well – all candidates are getting high marks in their Theory Exams!!!

On Saturday we will start with the EFR Instructor Course – a fun day out of the water, before we start with the IDC on Sunday!!

The water temperature is still at a nice 25 degrees Celsius this year, so we might be OK in our 5mm wetsuits!!

There are plenty of juveniles out in the bay at the moment so I’m looking forward to check them out soon!!

Check our webpage for the latest updates and photos!!!!

Greetings from sunny Dahab!!!
