Tobago- Day 2- SCUBA!

Tobago- Day 2- SCUBA!

Today we started the SCUBA course. A very intense day of watching videos, doing little tests on the videos, proving we can swim 200 yards and float for 10 minutes, and then finally into the pool to put all the theory to work!
I was SO impressed with Crispy and Josh- they kept their attention going really well and did all the exercises (including some pretty tough stuff like taking out your regulator and breathing off your “buddies”, and taking off your mask at the bottom of the pool and breathing without it for a full minute before putting it back on and clearing the water out). We have a day off tomorrow and then will do our 3rd confined water (pool) dive on Tuesday, together with our first open water (out in the sea) dive!
Jackie and the parents are having to find other stuff to do while we’re doing all this, so thanks to them for letting us do it- next week this will be done and we’ll rent a second car and do some serious sightseeing with them!
Here are some pictures of us in the pool today-
