Hello from Ecuador

Wow! What a first week. Projects going really well. All groups have now completed their first open water dive, 1 more to go each and the final test and we will be PADI certificated. They have seen turtles, puffer fish, angel fish and rays. Some real fears have been conquered over the last few days and the team are working really well together. A bit more of a chilled project today collecting rubbish from the beach - made all the more amazing with whales breaching on the horizon. We have a whale watching trip booked so standby for many pictures of the humpbacks in very close proximity fingers crossed.
