Congratulations to Lee, our former PADI Divemaster trainee, who has finished his course and became a dive professional!

The training went very smooth and Lee was able to master impressive skills already at an early point. Now Lee has started to guide certified divers around our reefs already and we have been hoping to have him and Erin with us for a long time. Sadly both have plans to move back to Washington DC soon but we are sure to see this dream team in Cambodia again.

Of course the graduating screamed for a massive dinner in Happa restaurant and a tour through the local nightlife afterwards!

"I am a dive professional!!!"

The Dive Shop's Accountants doing the PADI Open Water Diver course!

Yesterday we have had massive fun when our accountants went for their first confined water training session with Dennis.

Srey Na and our GM Sothea have been doing a PADI Discover Scuba Diving program already, for our new girl Nary it was the very first time using scuba equipment.

All three accomplished their skills successfully and we have had a whole lot of fun!

Today again we will work a bit on the theory part of the course, another video to watch, a couple of knowlegde review questions to fill in and tomorrow again we will have fun in The Secret Garden's pool at Otres Beach.

A massive thanks goes to The Secret Garden at the wonderful end of Otres 2 who allowed us to use the pool! The Secret Garden offers delicious food as well as some of the best bungalows around Sihanoukville. For further information please have a look on

Hula Hoop with The Dive Shop

May is usually a not-so-busy month in Cambodia. Its warm and humid and generally the best thing to do is join us for a refreshing dive!

The girls in our office in Sihanoukville have started to hula hoop instead!

We will keep practicing and in the next weeks offer some free fundives on certain days. Check out our facebook page 'The Dive Shop Cambodia' for further informations.
