After a week of paperwork and lectures and just being INSIDE the classroom, the divemaster candidates finally made it to the water to tackle the mapping project. The group split up into two teams of three people. They practiced skin diving techniques, measuring distances with fin kicks, navigating around Awas and the House Reef with a compass and using natural features, and learning how to plan and work together as a team. Take a look at the photos below.
Daniel, Shantha, and Sara drew a map complete with very colorful pictures of each of the structures. Peter, Moa, and Katrine produced a PIRATE’s treasure map. Both groups displayed such creativity in their efforts. It’s been really amazing to see them grow as divers and as friends!
