Our two candidates, James and Jin have just finished their IDC. After 10 days of hard work they finally finished!!First IDC of the year in Bunaken!!
Brendond and Tina organized a proper graduation party!!With few games and lots of drinking!!
Jin didn’t have time for DM party when he finished because he join the IDC straight away so we make all in one!!
First of all, just to warm up, Jin and James did their snorkel test with minor spitting. Great job!! After Jin demonstrated how to remove and replace a BCD. He is going to be a instructor so the standards are high!! Of course as a penalty for any mistake he had to drink.
To finish Jin sang a song which is part of Brendon’s Shark Guardian presentation.
He did have lots of fun, we hope that Jin and James also….
Jin left yesterday after almost one month with us, we wish the best of the luck on his diving career!!
In Lembeh our guests enjoyed a roasted pig dinner – BABI PUTAR. Our staff prepared and cooked the pig. It was slowly spit-roasted over a fire made from coconut husks and wood for around 4 hours until cooked to perfection (cheers Enggi)! It was enjoyed by all – Delicious!
We have currently running our first IDC of the year.
