Joanne and Tony Flack from the UK celebrated their qualifying dive for their Divemaster course in style, buzzed by a turtle on the Waterworld House Reef. Their busy schedule managed to fit the Divemaster Course, a couple of specialties, the Master Scuba Diver Rating, and (of course) a bunch of pleasure dives into a fun packed month in Taba. Thanks go to Kirby, Ashraf, Tracey, Hegazy, and Jack who all committed time and effort into giving the couple an in-depth and entertaining course.
