Second dive was Discovery Scuba Diving for my girlfriend. She has watched my divings already long time, so it was time for her also to try how does it feels to breath under water.

Instructor and Lyn checking the gears.
Then it was time to go water and try some basic skills.
After some basic training I came to water also and we were ready for the dive. Let´s dive!

Lyn has everything ok in the end of the dive. 
Here is a short video clip from the second dive.
Relax diving day. On the second dive was great to see there was no problem on the DSD for Lyn. In practice it means the next step for her will be the Open Water Diver course. Let´s see when and where it will happen.
