First time in Mexico , first time in Yucatan first time in Mahahual. And also the first diving experience for all of us. We were with a group of 6 persons, with four minors ranging between 14 and 11. All appreciated the diving very much.

Personally I had been in Port Sudan - one of the worlds famous spots for diving. And everybody had tried to talk me into diving. But somehow after the first experiences with diving in the swimming pool,  I had decided that I stick to snorkeling in the Red Sea. Diving, I had decided I did not like very much.

Now, how different this was when we were in the capable hands of Selma. After a sound and short theoretical introduction, we went in the ocean and started doing exercises. It all went very natural and easy. Before we even realised it, we were diving, - up to 9 meters deep. The two girls in our company did not trust themsleves the first time and got a special treatment of Selma. Next day she took them into shallow water and exercised patiently with them until they felt comfortable to dive themselves. I had not thought my 11 year old daughter would dive like this. We are still speaking about it.

It goes without saying that we all had the time of our lives. Selma and co-instructor Tito: very many thanks!
