Week 1 of Divemaster Internship in Bunaken
And so one gets to spend his 51st birthday diving, studying diving skills, getting underwater experience, new knowledge of marine life, new friends … and a school of dolphins frolicking on the surface after a dive! It overwhelms the emotions to think of the winter I left behind and the warmth I find myself in.
Week 4 of Eco Divemaster Internship now in Bunaken
What an eventful week this last week of my Eco Divemaster Internship has been!
The week began with assisting my instructor Dion on Eli’s Junior Open Water course. This was my first experience assisting on a whole Open Water course and it was very rewarding. I will never forget Eli’s first time under water. He was a bit stressed at the surface from salt water getting in his eyes but as soon as we pointed out a turtle swimming past he completely relaxed. For the rest of the dive every so often I could hear a muffled “wow” coming out of his regulator.
Big congratulations to Matthias for completing his Open Water Diver course in Bunaken with us yesterday. On this photo Matthias standing in between his Instructor Meska & John, our new Divemaster Intern.

THIS WEEK IN BUNAKEN… on our day trip to Mantehage we saw schools of giant travally & barracuda’s and a banded seasnake, and a big school of dolphin on the way. On other places around Bunaken we have been seeing the normal things like turles, eagle rays and seahorse hipocampus, plus a lovely chromodoris bullocki nudibranch.
