Scuba Diving Family from Lancashire become PADI Master Scuba Divers
Congratulations to the Waring family on becoming PADI Master Scuba Divers. Nick, Wendy, Jake and Alex all from Trawden, Lancashire learnt to dive back in 2011 and since then have had their sights set on becoming PADI Master Scuba Divers.
Over the course of the next few years they gained experience by diving in different parts of the world from the Farne Islands in Northumberland, Eccleston Delph in Chorley, Capernwray in Lancaster all the way to the Beautiful Red Sea, Egypt.
In 2013 they enrolled on the PADI Rescue diver course with Reefers and Wreckers, Lancashire. This saw them complete 5 pool sessions to learn the basics of diver rescue and then spent a weekend at Capernwray Dive Centre in Lancaster. During the weekend they put into practice what they had learn`t in the pool. The scenarios ranged from learning how to assist a diver from the shore through to Surfacing an unresponsive diver and administering rescue breaths along with many more skill development exercises.
After completing the Rescue course the family, who now seem to be known collectively as the ‘The Warings’, then started to focus on their 5 PADI Specialities. For the first time since 2011 they chose different courses depending on what interested them the most.
Nick and Wendy chose to complete the Deep, Enriched Air, Sidemount, Navigation and SMB diver Specialities. Alex decided to opt for the Digital Under Water Photography Speciality instead of Sidemount and Jake went for the Boat Speciality.
The ‘Warings’ long term plan finally came together while they were on a Red Sea Liveaboard with us in July of this year. All but two specialities for Jake and one for the rest of the family were completed in the UK which left a few more Dives to be completed from the Liveaboard M/Y Blue Horizon which is part of the Blue O Two Fleet. The week saw them complete their Deep Diver Speciality together along with Jake completing his Boat diver Speciality.
During the Deep diver Speciality they managed to dive on some of the amazing Red Sea Wrecks. They saw how pressure affects objects by the Chrisola K, completed timed tasks by the side of the SS Thistlegorm, and then completed their final dive and achieved a max depth of 38 metres by the Prop of the Rosalie Moller.

Nick, Wendy, Jake and Alex have achieved a huge amount over the last few years and all thoroughly enjoy their diving. Jake has already Started his PADI Divemaster course and Nick has mentioned that he will start his in the not too distant future.
Congratulations to all four of them and we wish them a very long and happy diving future.
