Congratulations to
Kyarah Lawrence
'PADI Open Water Diver'

My name is Kyarah Lawrence, I am 19 years old, curious about everything and love the outdoors, especially the water.

People say that the residents of Bexon are natural born swimmers or... and I quote "they like a water" ... Because the area is flood prone, so I guess it is true about me (LOL). I go to the beach at least six times a month, that's how much I love the water. 

I found out about the program through my mother, she usually sends me stuff about youth development, courses, and so on. She knows that I am obsessed with the water so she told me that I should apply. Which I did, obviously.

My very first dive, I will admit, I was extremely paranoid, afraid and thinking to myself "why can't I breathe, I can't hold my breath for so long, am I going to die?"
It gotten so bad that I needed help from two instructors to help calm me down ,and when I got the hang of it, I did not want to get out of water. 

Right now, I'm more in love with the water than I was before because of this new experience. I am really glad that I applied, got accepted, and have completed the open water course and I am very excited for the next step.

I am so grateful for PADI for providing me and my fellow colleagues with this opportunity.

Several Cruise lines require COVID-19 vaccination for guests and crew members

Several cruise lines have started announcing vaccination requirements for guests and crew members as the industry looks to restart after the COVID-19 pandemic.

Last year, cruise ships that were mid-trip began facing COVID-19 related turmoils as the virus began trickling around the world, leaving passengers stuck, infected, or dead. Shortly after, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a no-sail order, which was later replaced by its “Framework for Conditional Sailing Order,” a compilation of protocols needed for cruising to resume again by November 1...READ MORE
