During today’s safety boat tour up to Cape Arnautis on the Akamas Peninsula, two of the Latchi Watersports team came across a very sorry sight. They found a rather large green turtle (Chelonia-Mydas) on the north side of the popular St. George’s Island dive site completely tangled in fishing line.
Our Dive Intern Ben is still enjoying his time here with us at Latchi Watersports. He is learning something new every day. He has made a deep diver specialty video. It shows you some of his experiences diving in the beautiful waters along the Akamas Peninsula. If you are interested in diving or becoming an intern in 2019 click here
My name is Callum O’Sullivan, I am 18 years old and have just finished the first month of my divemaster internship here at Latchi Dive Centre (Latchi Watersports)
The first time I ever tried diving was a try dive in Egypt in 2009. I went on to complete my Open Water Course in Cambodia in 2011.
The Dive Internship to which I signed-up turned out to be a lot more challenging than I bargained for. But, what an opportunity.
This first month at Latchi Watersports has not only been educational but also life-changing. This was my first time away from home by myself. I don't think I could have chosen a more welcoming and endearing atmosphere in which to start my dive internship.
A stunning photo was taken by John Duggan from the bottom of the west wall of St George's Island.
St George’s Island diving and removal a large fishing net.
Johnny H, Johnny A, and Nicola went out to St George’s Island to remove a large fishing net yesterday. After a tough 4 hours and some deep dives down to 45 Metres, they hauled the net back on to the boat; making quite a mess.
Assistant Instructor Evaluation - Johnny Ashwin
It had been a good few years (five to be exact) since I began my foray into the world of professional diving and after a winter spent diving around Asia and a second season at Latchi Watersports about to begin; I felt it was time to progress with the PADI Assistant Instructor Evaluation at Latchi Dive Centre.
We recently completed a PADI Assistant Instructor Course for our very own Johnny Ashwin.
Johnny, who returned for a second season as part of the Latchi Dive Team. Completed the 5-day course and we all found it a great deal of fun. The PADI Assistant Instructor Course consists of instructor-led classroom presentations along with practical teaching workshops. Johnny did a superb job on. Have a look at his own write-up of his course experience.
