What was your least favourite and why?

I was a bit worried about things like getting lost underwater with students, because I want to give them the best experience possible, but the courses set me at easy and I am now confident in leading dives.

It’s really hard to choose, everyone is very helpful and knowledgeable. But team teaching with Nina was definitely a highlight, the way she organises and conducts the scuba diving courses I thought was fantastic.
