Meet our newest PADI Dive master

The PADI Dive master course at Sail Rock Divers.

Nikki our latest PADI Dive master said to us during her Rescue Course.  “Im going to the mainland to teach English”  She enjoyed her time here with us so much that she entertained the idea of becoming a dive professional and working in the industry.  However plans had already been arranged so she waved goodbye to us amongst good wishes and good lucks and headed off to the mainland.  A few weeks later….Nikki was back, being so bitten by the dive bug that she began the PADI Dive master Course here with us at Sail Rock Divers.  She worked hard, played hard and completed her course with flying colours.  We had a great party to celebrate!  Congratulations Nikki on becoming a PADI Dive master.  Im sure there will be many more underwater adventures to come.
