Scotts PADI Divemaster course

My last week in Bunaken has been a real rollercoaster of activities, involving a Project Aware beach clean up, lots of fun dives, a hair cut (!) and my snorkel test to celebrate finishing my course.

Dugong sighting in BunakenAdmittedly, there’s no Dugong in this picture, but we did see Dugongs from the surface this week in Bunaken!

Heading out for our first dive a few mornings ago at high tide, our boat was crossing the shallow reef plate when when our dive guides spotted what looked like a large grey ‘mass’ moving across the reef. Slowing down and drifting closer, all of our divers spotted the so-called ‘sea cow’ playing in about two meters of water. We stayed and watched for a few minutes more.

PADI divemaster course with Two Fish DiversIt’s been a week since I arrived at Two Fish Divers in Bunaken, where I plan to complete my PADI Divemaster course. Here are first impressions: the course sure keeps me busy, but I still managed to read a business magazine (old habits die hard!) in the evening to fall asleep. I have opted for a condensed three-week programme which has been off to a full-on start.

One of my favourite things to do so far has been practising the 24 basic dive skills and learning more about teaching other divers. Personally, I have been diving for four years already, which turns out to be long enough to pick up a few bad habits. If my first week is anything to go by, this course will definitely help me get back on track.
