Open Water Diver courses finished

A part of the master course is to use the intermediate deacclimatization between study legs on Mauna Kea for earning the Padi OWD with instructor Dr. Netzer (PADI OWI 955155). Physiology and medicine of scuba diving are also part of the course program titled “ understanding hypoxia from bottom to top“. Regular scuba diving theory will be extended by special medical, technical and psychology knowledge in an extra weekend in Innsbruck end of Jan 2015. Famous scuba diving journalist and long term „Tauchen“ EDIC Heinz Käsinger will be teaching on this weekend. The OWD course started already together with the normobaric simulation leg of the Mauna Kea hike in Bad Aibling. There, also between study legs, the pool sessions took place and the theory lessons together with the written test. Now, here on Big Island the free water dives took place at Mahukona and Honaunau. Two days ago every student had sucessfully finished its OWD. Now at Puako house nr 40 and at mile marker 4 in Kona the first free dives made a lot of fun with a close by swiming Manta and many turtles under water. Fun Scuba!
