Time is running fast when you are having a great time and that has been unfortunately so true for me. After the first three weeks of my Divemaster training on Bunaken, I really was not ready to leave for Nusa Lembongan. It was not easy all the time, I have learned a lot from my instructors Markus and Dion. Neither of them given up with me, even when I gave them hard time. Like during my first attempt to guide the night dive I kicked Markus on the head so many times he spent the next morning searching the internet for a suitable helmet. When I finally got on the boat to Manado there might have been some tears of sadness (or relief from Markus and Dion). But joking aside I loved diving and living on Bunaken, it was an amazing stay and I will always remember the amazing people I met. Thanks again guys.
PADI Divemaster training is about to commence for our two Staff Mr. Munahir (or Moon as most know him) and Mr. Ipan, and we wish them every success!
They are both ready but also a little nervous as it is going to test some of their weaker areas such as physics, physiology and their general English skills, but we have every confidence that they will succeed.
So Here I am in Bunaken Island and after a little over a week and I can tell you I have survived! You can say I have thrown myself into the deep end with this my first days of diving were straight to learning a rescue course then starting on my Divemaster training with Instructor Markus and the other DMT Romana (who is at a similar level of experience to myself).
I have spent this week of my Dive Master Training in Lembeh, and it has been a wonderful experience! I haven’t worn shoes since I’d arrived and I had 4 dives every day, so full of amazing creatures and spotting a hairy octopus and seeing a blue ring has made it the even better!
