A word from Bill about one of his students

I was teaching an open water student in the swimming pool a few years ago. Once we donned all the equipment I was checking to see if she had enough weight to stay on the bottom. In about 3 feet of water, she became very stressed and came to the surface saying she did not know if this sport was for her. I explained to her that what she experienced was purely psychological had nothing to do with scuba diving. She did not trust the regulator to provide her with enough air to breath. I cradled her in my arms and walked down slowly to the deep end of the pool, reassuring her by saying the water is coming up to your hips, now to your waist, now to your chest. This gave her that extra confidence and an hour later she was doing all the skills and turning back flips underwater. She ended her pool dive, saying “That was great, do we have to stop now?” I love teaching. Experiences like this are so rewarding.

A word from Bill

“My love for diving comes from my experience of the other divers. To watch them go from a fish out of the water to being a fish in the water excites me. Safety is the key. And having fun doing it is the best thing.”
