Two weeks have passed since I arrived in Bunaken. I spent those weeks doing the EFR course, the PADI Rescue Diver course in Bunaken and lots of dives. I also did the PADI Nitrox course with Dion (one of the PADI Instructors). I had (and am still having) a lot of fun with the diveguides which like my name and renamed me “Elo”:-)
Woah! Only two more days before Andreas, Thano and I finish our PADI Divemaster Training here in Lembeh with Two Fish Divers. Tomorrow we are organizing the final part of our training – the AWARE Project. The purpose is to organize an activity promoting environmental awareness, so we are heading out to clean the reef in front of one of the local villages.
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.
