Marvel star Hayley Atwell gets Open Water Diver certification at Coco Bodu Hithi in Maldives
Hollywood actress Hayley Atwell has completed Open Water Diver professional diving certification at Coco Bodu Hithi Resort in Maldives.
Hayley is popularly known for her portrayal of Peggy Carter in various films and television series set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including the lead role in the action-adventure series Agent Carter (2015–2016). Most recently she starred in Avengers: Endgame.
She shared her experience as a diver on Instagram: “Here with my fantastic diving instructor, Federica @fede_underthesea, just before the last dive of my @paditv Open Water Diver course. First I worked through the study materials and took the theory exam. Then the practical part consisted of five separate dives, each one practicing different exercises working towards 18 meters deep… learning how to set up my kit, descend into the water while equalising, emergency procedures for safe diving, monitoring the release of nitrogen from my body on an ascent… and many more techniques…Federica’s clear and calm instruction served to match the underwater environment. I am in awe of the ocean and it’s formidable power and beauty. Thank you Federica! #cocomoments #cocoboduhithi @coco_resorts” (sic).
At the the end of her stay, she thanked the team at Coco Bodu Hithi: “We have loved our time at @coco_resorts Thank you to the wonderful staff for making us feel so looked after. #cocomoments #cocoboduhithi.”
