Scandi Goes Tech!
Ethei & Andy
As our followers know, over the last year we have all been working very hard to improve both the resorts & the dive shop. As part of this advancement we are extremely proud to have conducted our 1st Technical Dive course.
Our Tech instructor Ethei coached Andy through his PADI Deep Specialty & IART’s Extensive Range program before taking Stephen & Andy (both part of the I Love Diving Club) through the PADI Trimix course.
