New Bunaken Trainee Divemaster
Our new Bunaken Trainee Divemaster, Bastien, has just spent his first week on the wonderwalls of Bunaken with us. Thrown in at the deep end with skill circuits, buoyancy practice and some stronger current than he is used to, he is developing fast into a PADI pro. This is Bastien’s adventures at Two Fish Divers Bunaken….
Hello! I am Bastien, a young guy coming from Belgium and doing my DMT with Two Fish Divers in Indonesia. Let me talk a bit about my week with them here as a Bunaken Trainee Divemaster!!
Bunaken is a small island in North Sulawesi and believe me, you will be amazed by the beauty of Two Fish Divers Bunaken. This resort is so beautiful with all those open areas, the pool with its shade part, the cafe/bar next to the beach. You also will be impressed by the food you are going to eat here: it’s so tasty with plenty of choices every day!
The resort and dive staff really are gentle and are always ready to help you or to teach you something. The PADI dive instructors, Colin and Maia are so professional that it is a pleasure to learn by their side as a Bunaken Trainee Divemaster. You can be sure if you succeed to do the skills they showed you, the way they do it, you will definitely be a better diver and you will do those skills near perfection. It is a real pleasure to learn from them because they will congratulate you on the things you do well and for your good actions, and they will also let you know how to improve yourself and your skills with well thought out advice. But they always remind you what you did well after that. It is the PADI ‘sandwich’ teaching technique perfectly applied.
Then let me talk a bit about the amazing dive sites in Bunaken Marine Park. Diving Bunaken you will not believe the beauty of the walls here, there is something interesting to see at every corner, every meter, even every few centimeters for the macro lovers! It is mind-blowing to see the diversity of fish you will find here without forgetting all the healthy corals that cover the dive sites. It probably is one of the last few pristine underwater places on earth so you need to come as quickly as possible to discover it.
That is my best advice for you and that is how I am going to say you goodbye until my next blog next week. Be there to read more of my adventures as a Bunaken Trainee Divemaster, and meanwhile, I wish you a lot of safe bubbles within the PADI standards’ limits. Cheers for now!
