Eco Diving - Koh Tao, Thailand


What was your favourite part of your scuba diving internship and why?


Learning to dive while living in paradise.


What was your least favourite and why?

Beach Clean Up in Koh Tao, Thailand

It was all good!


Who was your favourite Instructor and why?


Liked them all, best ones push you and give you applicable feedback.


During your scuba diving internship which of the additional Marine Conservation 'ECO' program activities did you take part in and which did you enjoy the most?


I did dive site clean ups, coral wafting, junkyard dome care, and moved a shark thingy. I enjoyed eco more than many of my fun dives. It was fun to actually doing an activity underwater that wasn't just looking around at corals.


Do you think our additional Marine Conservation 'ECO' program was beneficial to your Professional level scuba diving training and if so why?


I do. It gave me a good idea of things that can be done underwater beyond working with customers and ways you can build a program to help the environment.


As a qualified PADI Divemaster what are your future plans with regards to scuba?


I want to continue on to Tec diving and try commercial diving, or become a PADI Instructor.


And what about Koh Tao....


Favourite Restaurant?


Anything with pizza as an option has become a huge hit for me since I started diving.


How did you spend your non-diving days?


Playing video games and exploring the island.


Where are you heading to next?


Burning Man Festival 2017.
