Well I’m into the final week of my PADI Divemaster internship. The assessment activities are over, but there is always time to learn more about diving. For the last couple of days I have been following some of the dive guides around on dives. The eye that these guys have for tiny critters is amazing!
I can’t believe it has been 10 days since I arrived in Northern Sulawesi! Echo, one of the drivers from Two fish, welcomed me with a big smile on his face at the airport. He brought me to the harbor, where I jumped on a speedboat to Bunaken.
Well after planning this trip for around half a year, I’m now roughly half way through my PADI Divemaster course here in Sulawesi.
Sometimes when people think of Divemaster Trainees, they get the impression that they are mostly backpacking twenty somethings. Well, I’m not quite in that age group anymore, but I have definitely been bitten by the scuba bug. Doing the Divemaster course isn’t really about looking for work in the dive industry, well at least not in the immediate future. It’s more about a personal challenge and improving my dive skills.
It’s been a fantastic past few weeks here in Bunaken. I did eventually conquer my ear infection, and since then we’ve been diving just about every day on my Divemaster course – heaps of diving!
