Helen, Gizmo and everyone at Two Fish Divers would like to congratulate Marta, David & Santiago on passing their PADI Open Water Course!
Helen & Gizmo travelled from the dark side to Bunaken to teach an Open Water Course in Spanish, Gizmo’s home language. The course got off to a great start with them seeing a turtle at The Lagoon, which is very rare as most of the dive guides in Bunaken have not seen one there before! The course continued without the guys having any problems and ended on a high with another Turtle sighting at Lekuan 1! Gizmo worked extra hard translating Helen’s briefings into Spanish but it was clear from looking at the huge smiles on their faces that all 3 thoroughly enjoyed the course!
The price is great value at only €2,150.
The next IDC is 8 Feb 2010 and we only have 2 places left, please contact us for more info.
Our IDC started at the beginning of this week. We have three candidates – Rod and Gina, and one of our local dive guides Dion – and they are being very spoilt with the services of both Course Director Brendon and Staff Instructor Tina!
Following on from the first ever IDC on Bunaken, PADI held the first ever PADI Instructor Exam (IE) 18-20 September 2007 in Gran Puri, a hotel in Manado City.
There were 6 candidates – 4 from Two Fish Divers and 2 from Eco Divers – and we would like to say thanks to PADI and examiner Rob Scammell for supporting the area by holding the IE.
Two Fish Divers held the very first IDC (Instructor Development Course) on Bunaken 9-17 September 2007. We had 4 candidates – Marco, Pim Sammy and Raphael – and they all passed with flying colours. We wish them all luck in their future careers as PADI instructors.
In the photo there is also Brendon our CD (on left) who ran the course, and Tina (on right) who helped with the course.
We hope that Bunaken will become popular with people wanting to learn to become instructors, and we are going to hold IDC’s every June and September.
