Lauren and Chris are here visiting Roatan for the very first time from Houston, Texas. Lauren's brother and father are both certified divers, and they decided this was the perfect opportunity for Lauren and Chris to give diving a try! They were so excited and attentive while they learned many of the basics of scuba diving. After briefing them on how all of their equipment worked, they went into shallow water to get comfortable. Even when just in the shallows they saw a scorpion fish and a barracuda! Lauren and Chris did a great job at practicing some key skills like mask clearing before it was time to head out into open water.
For their dive, John and David joined them underwater so it was a fun family activity! Lauren and Chris were so thrilled to get to experience the reef and all of its underwater inhabitants up close. Lauren was a little nervous in the beginning, but she conquered her nerves and we all had a great dive together! On the dive saw schools of horse eyed jacks, sand diver and Chris had an encounter with a very curious remora.
They were such naturals in the water we hope to have them back one day to complete their full Open Water course! Great job Chris and Lauren!
