What 'Diving Lifestyle' Internship program did you complete?
What where you doing before you joined Crystal Dive's team to complete your scuba diving internship (Diving Lifestyle Program) on Koh Tao?
Before I came
to Crystal I was travelling Asia and Australia. My first time
travelling in Thailand I completed a DSD (Discover
Scuba Dive) at Crystal and fell in love with diving so I knew
I would have to return.
I spent around
3 months to complete my internship. I loved that you could complete
it at your own pace and if you wanted days off you could. I visited
Koh Phangnan for the famous full
moon party and another DMT and myself completed a visa run
to Malaysia for a few days and returned to complete our internship.
My favourite part of the internship was of course being able to dive every day. I met the most amazing people at the same time, from students completing their courses to other DMT's/Instructors on the Crystal Dive team, some of which will mostly definitely remain friends for life.
I had the
best time completing my internship with everyone I met!
My least favourite
part was when the visibility wasn't as good as I had hoped (especially
when you have customers/students and want to show them how good
diving is on Koh Tao)
There are too many to choose from! They are all great! But I chose Vic as my mentor throughout my internship as he was my advanced instructor and the first instructor I got to know. My first time assisting a course was with Vic and he made it lots of fun; my favourite assist was also with Vic, when I assisted a rescue course along with some of the other DMT's.
Steve!! He was the reason I came to Crystal in the first place
as he knows my cousin from back home so I have him to thank for
this great experience and I am so glad I completed my internship
I love diving
and when I am working in a boring job (like now) I just remember
how much I love diving and it's the best job so who knows maybe
I will have to return to Crystal and complete my Instructor
Koh Tao is
Thailand's best island! It honestly has a very homely feel to
it. The beaches are lovely and the people are so friendly. It's
the right mix for me, great nightlife and quiet enough to chill
on the beaches to cure your hangovers!!
Zest would have to be the best restaurant on the island for breakfast! Pranee's restaurant right near crystal has great Thai food and it's so cheap!
where I often went for the best pizza/pasta, even when I felt
lazy they would deliver to my bungalow-great service!
When I wasn't
diving the other DMTs and myself would normally get up to something.
Renting bikes and riding to other places on the island, quads
to the many viewpoints or just chilling on the beach.
Right now I am in Australia again, and hopefully will return to Koh Tao soon!
