This week on Bunaken, Two Fish Diver guests were out night diving to discover the wonders of the fish life that likes to stay out late. One of the most fascinating things we watched were sponges ‘breathing’ with the use of a special bright yellow, non-toxic dye that was injected near the base of the sponge. Within a few seconds the sponge would absorb the dye and pump it up through its complex vein system and push it out in a jet stream from the top. The photo for this week was taken by instructor Sandy’s Advanced Open Water students, Roger and Berdine, who were so addicted to night diving that after their course they went out with assistant instructor Ken and watched this crazy sponge phenomena.
After 2 weeks of my Divemaster Internship at Two Fish in Nusa Lembongan I have already experienced a lot. Time flies! It’s very interesting to see what’s going on in a Dive center. Who is in charge of what and what needs to be done, so everything works without problems and – most importing thing -pleases the guest. As a tourist you wouldn’t think how much work and effort there is behind the scene, so diving is safe and fun.
Our previous PADI IDC Course (Instructor Course) in July 2014 was a great success (see Recent IDC on Bunaken has successful conclusion) and our next one starts on 23 Sept 2014. We thought that we would run a few articles to give prospective students an insight into our PADI IDC Course, and this first blog is all about our PADI IDC Course Director, Marlies Lang.
Last week we saw the successful conclusion to our IDC on Bunaken (IDC is the PADI Instructor Development Course. We had two candidates studying hard to become the next PADI Open Water Instructors. It was great success and both candidates completed the IDC with flying colours! Well done to Quinne and Kenedy!
