We originally started scuba diving with 2000, when Heather purchased David a PADI open water course for Christmas! Heather decided that she didn’t want to sit on the beach wondering if David would come back safe, so reluctantly joined the course.  After a shaky start in Portland harbour, where we conducted our open water dives (both of us struggled to get through the first day), in the cloudy and cold water of Portland harbour (9°C), Scuba diving has become something that we plan our holidays around and we try to get as much diving in during the year as we can! Unfortunately David’s medical condition is making this difficult, so Heather is learning how to handle the camera for those times when David is not allowed to dive, not as easy as it looks!
