Week 1 of Divemaster Internship in Bunaken

Another week done as a divemaster intern. Halfway there. Wow .. how much I’ve learned! I spent time with instructor Dion in a Rescue Diver course, and was happy to both observe the skills and get some practice and refresher myself. We worked in both the confined environment of the swimming pool and then took it all to the open water and performed the skills there. There were instructional deep dives, drift dives, navigation dives, and even managed a little fun diving :-)

Sarah Divemaster internshipWeek 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.
