We continuously educate our staff and send them also to external courses to enable them to serve our guests diving in Bunaken with the highest standard. Please see below some examples of the current staff education.
Rolly, our senior dive guide is currently doing a gas blender course and he passed the theory exam with flying colours. More practice fills with blending a few tanks and he will be a qualified gas blender. He will be able to serve our technical divers the requested mixes for their deco dives.
Yady, our equipment and compressor technician has years of experience with servicing our equipment and provides our guests with full tanks of air or nitrox. To keep up with the latest compressor technology he attended a Bauer compressor course in Bali last week.
Rocky, one of our experienced boat crew members is getting trained to work as a dive guide. So we send him on dives to shadow the experienced dive guides and learn the ropes how to find the camouflaged critters on the Bunaken coral walls and how to bring our guests safely through the currents on drift dives. Our senior dive guides, dive manager and instructors will then get guided by Rocky and put him through some tough tests to get him ready for high season. Only then he will be ready and allowed to guide his first guests. We continuously monitor and give our dive guide feedback.
We do all this to make your dive holiday a fun and safe experience! In developing our employees we also want to provide a great place to work and to provide a future for the local community.
Hopefully, we will see you soon diving in Bunaken and you can give us feedback how we do!
