Nicole’s diving dream came true!

My diving dream!

My name is Nicole Dergosits and I came to Gili Air from America in May 2017 to get my open water scuba certificate. I have never scuba dived before and I was so excited but also a little nervous.

As I am deaf, I needed to get clearance from my doctor at home to be able to scuba dive. Hearing impairments can sometimes mean that you are not able to dive due to complications within the ear or cochlear implant surgery for example. However, as I don’t have an implant I was cleared to dive! Hupla!

When I started at Oceans 5 Dive, I immediately felt welcomed by everyone. I also had an amazing instructor who was more than willing to accommodate to my needs and made sure I understood everything. My nervousness quickly faded and I enjoyed every minute at Oceans 5 and in the ocean diving with different instructors. I am very impressed with Oceans 5 and all of the employees. They welcome everyone from all different backgrounds and abilities and they really did  make my dream come true.
