Sunday Update

Wow, was today a great day to be a diver or what? Deep Blue Quest spent the day at Jamsil Pool training our new dive interns, Chuck and Ken. We practiced basic skills in the morning, and Rescue Diver skills in the afternoon. It was a long day but very rewarding.

Hey Divers,

We here at Deep Blue Quest wanted to let you know about a great weekend we had. On Saturday we held an Open Water Course, a Nitrox(enriched air) course, AND an EFR course at the dive shop in Paju.

On Sunday, we headed to Suwon’s Kolon Sport Center for pool training. Russ conducted the training for the Open Water course while Patrick, aided by our new Dive Master Don, taught a Rescue Diving course. Dive Master Don did a great job of being a diver in need of assistance ☺.

We wanted to say how proud we were of both of our Open Water students Jos and Christina , Chuck who completed the Nitrox and EFR Courses, Jorge who completed the Nitrox Course, and Ken(our new intern) who completed the Nitrox, EFR, and Rescue Diver pool training.
