Madelein Wolfaardt (SealifeMadeleinwolf) I am a photographer living in Cape Town, South Africa. We have beautiful colorful reefs here and of course the magnificent kelp forests. I love to travel. I have a deep love and appreciation for the ocean and all the creatures there in. I am a Nudibranch fan and my favorite marine mammal is the dolphin (cliche I know). I love to explore with my dive buddy who is also my husband an ex navy diver. We love to raise awareness with my underwater images, getting more people to fall in love with the ocean. You protect what you love. SSI Navigation

2) Poorly maintained equipment. My secondary was filled with sand and he would not give me a new one. When we got into the water, I found that my primary had a leak which allowed water to get into my mouth with every breath. I had to leave the group to change it out.
3) Did not meet certification requirements. The maximum depth that the class went was only 12 f...
