The Adventure Club of SEZ Colombo successfully organized Learn How To Scuba Dive – A one day course on how to scuba dive on Sunday the 16th of February, 2020.
A total of 18 excited participants left for Unawatuna at 7.30 am in the morning from Burhani Park. The participants were divided into 2 groups of 9 each.
The Training took place in 2 stages:
-A theory session was held at the dive site that thoroughly explained how to use the diving equipment, safety features and communications underwater.
-A practical session then took place in the shallow waters on how to decompress, what to do when water gets into your gears & equipment and etc.
Participants were then confident to dive into the world underneath!
For a duration of 45 minutes, they explored shipwreck sites and came across lionfish, pufferfish and many more!
Lunch was served after and the group headed back to Colombo with some amazing memories.
This project was initiated for the first time and with Aqa Moula’s Raza Mubarak for the project it received tremendous feedback.
We thank all the participants and look forward to planning our next adventure, Insha Allah.
