Shane Elder – Adventure Diver

Congratulations to Shane Elder for passing his PADI Adventure Diver course in December.

First of all, well done for managing to complete the whole course (including the theory) in just one day. Secondly, well done for persuading his wife, Nicole to let him do it – they were on their second honeymoon and he had to start by getting permission, then he had to try and fit in the diving around all the fishing, kayaking and waterfall trips they were doing. Good work Shane.

It was a really fun course, the highlight probably being on his naturalist dive when a manta ray nearly flew into his head. Shane was trying to work out what I was pointing at/looking at/screaming about, when he turned and saw a 4m manta about 2 feet in front of him. His expression was priceless.

Shane was hoping to go to New Zealand and do his Deep and Navigation dives to upgrade to PADI Advanced Open Water.

Good luck mate.
