5:40am Saturday 13th July 2019, 14 Perth Scuba Trukkers gathered at the Air Niugini counters at Sydney International Airport for their first group check in. For many, the two & half year wait was finally over. Truk Odyssey, here we come. Whilst the first 14 checked in and had their group photo, it was a nervous past 15 hours for the 15th PS Trukker. Qantas cancelled his flight, the last plane departing Perth the night before. Thanks to Virgin Airlines and Air Niugini, Damien rejoined successfully following an overnight flight and terminal transfer dash with his luggage.
Perth Scuba are proud to have 2 very competent sidemount instructors in house, who have gotten together and come up with a brand new format for the Padi recreational Sm course
Whilst the PADI sidemount course may not be a ‘tech’ sidemount course, both of our instructors are experienced technical divers, who live and breathe sidemount diving, and the Padi SM course is flexible in that they are able to add skills and drills above and beyond the minimum standards, depending upon an individual diver’s skillset.
The Padi SM course is run over 2 and a half days.
