Congratulations, Hon!! Can't wait to hear all about your undersea adventures.

When do you leave for SP? If it's a couple of months from now, ask your instructor if you can have a pool refresher just before you leave.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!

My husband and I had about a 6 or 7-week break between completion of the course and our open water referral. One thing that helped me: we went snorkeling immediately after check in. We stayed at Ramon's, and after seeing the nurse shark and moray eel that seem to live under the dock there, I was SO excited to dive.

Also, Jim out instructor was wonderful. He said since it had been a while since course completion, our first dive would be sight seeing, relaxed and no skill assessment - just get ourselves acclimated.

You’re about to enter into a wonderful world of great sights, amazing experiences and great people. The people/divers in the cabin next to us applauded our certification when we came back in. Divers are a very friendly bunch!

Congratulations on your accomplishments this far, and best of luck with your open water cert. Be sure to keep us “posted.” :-)
