Maisie’s Scuba Story
My name is Maisie, I am now eleven years old and earlier in the year I passed my
Junior PADI open water and dry suit diver qualification in February 2020 when I was
ten years old. I saved all my money I got from my family for Christmas to be able to
pay for the course. The course was tough and being in February very cold; but the
Ocean Turtle Team were incredibly supportive.
I got inspiration for diving when I went to Greece in 2019. I did a pool dive followed
by scuba diving in the sea. I started then to realise I loved scuba diving.
I love going scuba diving to see all the sea creatures and I would like to start helping
the underwater environment. I am planning to go diving in the Red Sea next year
(2021) and to hopefully get my photographer diver course, to examine the different
types of sea creatures from Egypt (Marsa Alam) and the UK (Cornwall or
Porthkerris). I have done multiple dives in different places, for example: Porthkerris,
Vobster, Wraysbury and Greece. I also practice and keep up to date with my diving
by practising my skills in the swimming pool.
In the future I hope to become more skilled and one day get my Master Qualification
and learn more about the underwater world.
