The IE – Day 2

JUles' Underwater Lodge - The location of our Open Water evaluations

Jules’ Underwater Lodge – The location of our Open Water evaluations

The Open Water part of the IE took place at Jules’ Undersea Lodge. It’s an interesting location as the lodge is an underwater “hotel” and you have to be a certified scuba diver if you want to stay in it.

Anyway back to the topic in hand, the last day of the IE.

07:30 – Arrived at Jules’ Undersea Lodge. Set up equipment and got ready to enter the water.

08:00 – Gave Briefing of the skills that we would do on the dive.

09:00 – Started Rescue Demonstration PASS (they only give a pass or fail no score on this one)

10:30 – Into the water and it’s time to do the lesson portion of the dive.

10:55 – Out of the water and it’s time to prepare the debrief.

12:00 – Debriefs start.

12:30 –  I finished my debrief and was given my score for both my skills –

  1. Tying a Bowline 5/5
  2. CESA 5/5

13:30 – Presentation of certificates.

I am so pleased that I have finally passed. I can’t believe that I have finally made it. This has been a dream of mine for over a year now and I have finally made it.  Everyone on the IE passed. Apparently that is unheard of but it’s a great result.

Thanks to everyone who helped me along the way I really appreciate it.

Now, who wants to learn to dive?
