The new PADI IDC format requires that candidates now have to undertake an “Intro to Diving” workshop. This event coincided with the last day of our IDC so we had our IDC candidates as well as instructors and course director helping out!
The purpose of this event was to increase awareness to the locals of Manado by showing them just a little part of what kind of life and wonderful things we can find underwater. Hopefully this will bring more interest from the communities to protect their natural resources, making a profit out of the wonders they already have, instead of over developing the area.
We also had the pleasure of taking a group from Indonesian television networks on their first ever underwater experience. These were just a few people out of over 200 who came to join us on our day of fun and protection.
HOPE WE HAVE HELPED TO MAKE A CHANGE!
