Maurice and Colin’s AIDA 2* Course

Saturday, September 10th, 2011

First dive in the Red Sea

We did theory and pool work as usual on the first day of a 2* AIDA course but the boys were so excited and they could see the sea… so had to give them some time to explore and see some fish!  They were like school kids let out on a break.  There first experience of the Red Sea, fish and corals on a small scale from the beach, some soft corals around the marina and flying fish too.

When they came out of the water you can just see the smiles on their faces, this was the beginning of an exciting few days discovering the Red Sea and her many wonders.



They completed the 2* course after just 3 days and were wonderful students who listened and excelled themselves both reaching over 20 metres in depth and looking good in the water!  Even the turtle was impressed by their finning at the end of the course!  Then it was time to relax before a trip to Cairo today.

Day off on Sunday and then we start with the 3* course on Monday!  Still one place left if you would like to join mail me today :-)

Just Breathe

This is the beginning of a freediving day with Freedive Egypt!  Sitting around breathing and focusing on the day ahead.  We start with stretching followed by deep breathing and relaxation.  Visualisation to get into the right ‘head space’ and to discover any stresses or worries that might be on your mind.  We then discuss the plan and help to eliviate worries or concerns.

Easy to see just from the stance that the guy to Michaels left is going to be using more air on his dive!  Shoulders forward, chest compressed, no room to breathe!


Have you ever seen a nicer setting for an exam?The return journey gave us time for the exam!

Have you ever taken an exam in a nicer setting?  He was a superstar and did really well :-) finishing with 97% pass!

We are looking forward to Michael coming back later in the year to work on more head down equalisation which was much better by the end of his stay but a cold meant unable to complete this time.  I think it’s just an excuse to come back again myself :-)

“Thanks for your help and training
You changed my way to freedive 😉
