Take the Master Scuba Diver Challenge!

A few weeks ago, we released a new page, encouraging you to “Take the Master Scuba Diver Challenge!” We recently had a diver complete his challenge successfully, and we’d like to congratulate him! Brian Wright, a diver friend from Edmonton Alberta, has visited Blue Angel on his winter vacation for the past three years (just like many of you). From the beginning, he had a goal: Master Scuba Diver. During his first visit in 2011, he completed his Advanced Open Water course; you can read about that adventure here. From there, he completed his Enriched Air Diver training at his home dive shop (friend to Blue Angel; Ocean Sports in Edmonton), and then on his next visit to Blue Angel in 2012, he spent two weeks completing his specialty requirements* and his Rescue Diver course. Brian wrote a review on Trip Advisor outlining his 2012 experience; we’re excited to see him say this:

“The biggest success is the huge boost in confidence in my abilities and a new passion for diving.”

That’s what we want for all of you. Each and every one of you. Increased confidence in your abilities, renewed passion for diving. That is what the Master Scuba Diver Challenge is all about! During his 2013 visit, Brian gained some more experience by just diving. Diving, diving, diving. We’re so proud of his accomplishment! Congratulations, Brian!

Master Scuba Diver, Brian Wright!

*The Master Scuba Diver rating requires certification in 5 PADI specialties. Brian accomplished this by completing his Enriched Air Diver, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Drift Diver, Night Diver and Digital Underwater Photographer courses. You can choose others if you prefer!
