Many people who learn to dive do so while on holiday because many vacation destinations offer warm water and fantastic tropical marine life.
However, while learning how to dive in an exotic place is definitely a fun experience, how can you do this without devoting your whole holiday to your scuba certification?
You actually have the choice of 3 ways to easily learn to dive, and two of them will help save some valuable vacation days.
Meet Singaporean Sing Yi. She came to Two Fish Tech in December to dip her toes into technical diving and had some concerns about being able to handle the amount of equipment involved. Whilst we do carry more on technical dives, we strongly believe that excellent skills and thorough planning make a good technical diver much more so than physical strength does.

January blues? Not in Bunaken!Statistically speaking, this week is when most people around the globe are hit by the so-called January blues – but not our team in Bunaken.
Granted, this is one of the quieter times of the year, but with guests completing three dives a day, our dive guides are still busy looking for creatures large and small. What’s even better is that with fewer divers around we have a good chance to have our chosen dive sites all to ourselves – plenty of time to hang out with Napoleon wrasse, watch our favourite sea turtles munch away in the morning and search for smaller critters.
As the New Year begins, you may be starting to prepare yourself for that dream career-change or gap-year with the New Year’s resolution of becoming a PADI Divemaster. If so, then you may find yourself overwhelmed with all the different options that you have.
Whilst working through all the different options, one big question may come to mind – should you pay or work off your DM internship?
