PADI Divemaster Internship

What were you doing before you joined Crystal Dive?

Studying Physiotherapy at university.

How long have you spent completing your scuba diving internship?

5 weeks

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

The Christmas dive where the visibility was amazing, my 100th naked dive and of course fun diving for 60 plus minutes with Diamond!

What was your least favourite and why?

Confined sessions in the pool. Not even wearing 3 wetsuits kept me warm!

Who was your favourite instructor and why?

Jennie – provider of milo on my birthday and we had multiple coral transplant dives which I really enjoyed.

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 heaps of Eco dives as I liked the long dive times and doing something worthwhile. I did coral transplants, adopt a coral, reef clean-up and Drupella snail collection.

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

Absolutely – apart from the knowledge you gain regarding the environment its great for improving your buoyancy.


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

Unfortunately, I’m currently typing up this review whilst in a lecture at Uni for the next 6 months. After that Im planning on doing my Instructor course in Honduras later this year!


And what about Koh Tao….

Favourite Restaurant?

Yangs! $3.50 mojitos, $2 curries and $1 veggie burgers!

How did you spend your non-diving days?

Snorkelling at shark bay, walking up to two view look out, Full Moon Party on Koh Phangan, fire limbo at rock bar, pub crawls, and recovering at Yangs.

Where are, you heading to next?

Back to Canberra for 6 months then travelling through Central America for 5 months.
