Alicia’s Open Water Course Experience

ImageMeet Alicia, an actress, originally from Perth now living in Melbourne, Australia who recently completed her Open Water Diver Course here at Blue Marlin Dive on Gili Trawangan.

So Alicia, why did you learn to Scuba Dive?

I have always wanted to scuba dive since I was little.  I come from a boating family so I started snorkelling at a young age and always wanted to go deeper and see more things. It’s very exciting.

This is your first time to Gili Trawangan, why did you choose Blue Marlin Dive?

I did quite a lot of research before arriving on Gili and had selected a few potential places but after into Blue Marlin and sitting down with Edwin i decided right there and then that this was the place for me. Friendly staff, great facility and location.Image

Tell me about your dives, what kind of things did you see and what was your favourite?

On my first dive at shallow Turbo I saw a black tip reef shark, hawksbill turtles, green turtles and of course lots of nemo’s, all within the first 10 minutes! My favourite would have to be the green turtles, they’re just so beautiful.

What’s your plans for diving in the future?

I would love to do my Advanced Open Water ticket and further my knowledge of fish and of course so I can deep dive. But first I plan on being able to join my family on their dives on the west coast of Australia from our family boat.
