Imagine you are at the moment in life where you would be able to choose whatever you like to do, you do not have any responsibilities and could choose anything you want; what pops up in your mind? What would you love to do or experience? From land to sea In January this year, I…
Divemaster course is a really hard work to me as it deals with many tanks and equipment every day. Having a petite frame, these hard works can knock me out sometimes, nevertheless, it’s still a great experience. I have reviewed open-water skills in the pool with my instructor and learned some new techniques, such as filling cylinders, managing the boat, and doing my first briefing on the boat.
The environment here is good, the food was yummy, the staffs are friendly, and there are 3 lovely big dogs. Everything is simply just brilliant. Except if it could rain slightly less but we are in the raining season. Despite the rain, the visibility is good underwater.
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…
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!

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!
Maddi’s first divemaster trainee blog WOOHOO! I’ve started my Divemaster in the centre of the Indo-Australian archipelago- Bunaken Island, North Sulawesi. Arriving on day 1 to a bunch of friendly faces was a comforting feeling as a solo backpacker, and with a few welcome drinks at night I couldn’t wait for the next day to see the dive sites.
