This was their first "real" dive. No skills, just swim around like real divers. We worked our way down into the spring. I checked regularly to ensure that everyone was comfortable, staying with their buddies and communicating with their buddies. We got down to the sign. I signalled for everyone to stop while I backed my way into the darkness (out of sight) while facing them to make sure no one followed. On the way up, we played around, swimming into the backs of the ledges and through the swim throughs. Bishop Johnson did not get to do the swim through since he went up with Tom so I took him back down while the class waited on the surface. He thought it was really cool! As it turned out, the group was very happy that we could not get into DeLeon Springs and had to come here. Aside from the pancake breakfast, this was a much better dive!
