Family Dive

Tyrii is a certified open water scuba diver! He passed his exams – both practical and theory – with flying colours and is now allowed to dive down to 18 metres. I am so proud of our twelve year old!

You can read what he thought of the scuba course on Dive Munda’s blog: http://www.mundadive.com/bottom-time-blog/2017/4/10/tyrii-kids-blog

We all joined Tyrii on his final couple of training dives with Belinda and her crew from Dive Munda. It was a fab family day out with lots of underwater magic: stunning corals, crazy fish and beautiful underwater landscapes.

Aeneas, who at seven is too young to scuba dive, went snorkelling with one of Belinda’s crew while we were diving.

After that stunning dive we clambered back onboard for some snacks and water and set off to the next dive site called “Eagle’s Nest” where one can usually find plenty of eagle rays.
