Zero to Hero with ScottHaving never dived before I decided to go “zero to hero”, from non-diver to Divemaster, with Two Fish and complete my Divemaster course in Bunaken. Why? Mainly because my dad had always loved diving and from his stories I knew I would too (I also wanted to get away from the miserable British weather), so I swapped England for sunny Sulawesi.

I arrived in Lembeh and did my Open Water Course in October, then it was off to Bunaken to do Advanced, EFR and Rescue, building up to Divemaster. A week ago, I had ticked all the boxes and officially started my Divemaster course.

I came prepared: family who had done their DM told me that I would have a lot of work to do, and they were right. There’s a lot of things to complete for the course as well as being a member of staff and helping out with loading the boat, doing dive site briefings and generally helping customers.

For the past week I have been following the guides to learn how they find critters in the water and how they look after their group. Although I still prefer seeing the larger animals (sorry, Team Lembeh), I’d say it’s more of a challenge to look for the smaller stuff. It also feels like a bigger achievement when you finally find something hidden away. Seeing larger marine life doesn’t require as much skill, it’s more a matter of luck.

So far, every day has been a lot of fun, but what I’ve enjoyed the most is finding out more about the reasons behind the rules of diving as well as developing my skills.
