Hola! Vanessa here, one of the two newest IDC candidates with Oceans Unlimited. Tune in to follow the journey. Today I’m enjoying a relaxing “day off” getting a head start on the diving knowledge workbook. I will post for you the positives, negatives and everything in between!

I arrived only a few days ago and was welcomed by the team with open hearts. I’ve had my first pool session since I started diving nearly 3 years ago, a different but good experience. I also enjoyed my first 2 dives in the pacific, and although the conditions are less favourable than I’m use to, I loved them both. They were learning experiences, a big thank you to instructors Brad and Patrick for helping orientate me with my new surroundings underwater. Also a massive thank you to everyone at Oceans Unlimited for making me feel welcome, and being eager to help me learn the ways of the shop and boat. I can’t wait to share this experience with everyone. Ciao for now!
