Divemaster Internship in Gili Air
Jenny and Komang are the greatest. They are kind, supportive, and give me amazing feedback that truly makes me feel like I am improving and growing. I can tell that they really do want to help me learn and become a better diver and person.
Compared to Nusa Lembongan the water here is nice and warm, around 30 degrees. I very much enjoy just wearing a rash guard than a 5m, or even a 7m like I wear in California.
Gili Air is even smaller than Lembongan, but it’s really much more my vibe. No cars, not even motorbikes, just good old pushbikes and walking. Gili Air is supposed to be the most quiet and calm of the Gili islands, but there are actually quite a few things to do at night. There’s little movie theaters on the beach, live music in front of a bonfire, as well as bars and clubs if that’s your thing. I often like to steal good wifi and do work on my computer by the live music.
Yesterday, we had an awesome beach cleanup that was loads of fun. I was able to convince a lot of people passing by to come to join us to help clean the beach. Overall I think we had about 80 people help out. Many could only stay for a little bit before catching boats off the island, but it was great to have the support and it’s crazy how much trash you can pick up in even 5 minutes.
We all really need to work on reducing our plastic consumption and showing companies and governments that consumers want more reusable and environmentally friendly products. We don’t want plastic. We don’t want something that is choking the ocean, the life source and lungs of our blue planet.
It is sad to know that soon this amazing experience in Indonesia will come to an end. For now, I will enjoy this remaining time I have and soak in all the knowledge, experience, and wonderfulness I can get through my Divemaster Internship in Gili Air!
