We have had some great presentations both in the pool, class and the ocean with the open water presentations. This was the first PADI IDC where everyone has taken part in the PADI e-learning. Because of that we were able to spend more time focusing on practical exercises and most importantly diving. Here at Go Pro Costa Rica we used our extra time to work on more inwater ...
