Laughs and laughs with the pussy divers

Diving is a vacation for most people. I am mean, working in the dive industry is basically a vacation as well, am I right instructors?  Here in Costa Rica we are located in one of the favorite travel destinations which, lucky for us is growing into a dive destination as well.  Costa Rica has so much to offer tourists, with its beautiful nature and inland activities, that diving sometimes becomes a second option.  However, slowly divers are coming to our beautiful country just to dive!

This week we had a group of old-time college friends who booked a week of diving.  These guys were serious divers, 4 dives a day, but we enjoyed every little bit of it!  The whole week was full of jokes, teasing each other and loads of laughs.  One of the guys swam like crazy after he got too close to a turtle. Somehow turtles freak him out, can you believe it?  Needless to say, Eric became president of “the pussy divers” club.

Rickey, new president?

Rickey, new president?

This title changed fairly quickly during a pizza night when one of the guys put a little too much hot sauce on his pizza and we could almost see the steam coming from his ears!  New President: Craig.  Of course we googled pussydivers.com but the url has been taken 😦

They had a great dive to Bat islands and enjoyed the bull sharks (no, that did not scare Eric at all) and the numerous local dives and night dives.

We closed the week with some social time; the boys went spear fishing and Brenda created a wonderful fish curry for lunch. cleaning the fish

We had more laughs and everyone kinda relaxed.  We made new friends!  Diving is a social sport and every diver that comes into Rich Coast is a new friend.

relaxGreat thing about working as an instructor: You’ve got friends all over the world!
