What PADI scuba diving Internship program did you complete?

PADI Divemaster


What were you doing before you joined Crystal Dive?

Studying in Germany and traveling Thailand for 2 weeks.

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 most fun thing was the Christmas fun dive with everyone in the morning, wearing Christmas hats. Besides that, assisting rescue courses and fun diving with the other DMTs.


What was your least favourite and why?

Unfortunately, I did my Internship during the monsoon so it was raining so much and the Koh Tao Regal swimming pool was pretty cold.

Who was your favourite instructor and why?

Nina, because everything with her was so much fun! She’s teaching in a good mix of professionalism and having fun and cares about everyone of her students. Hanging out with her is like hanging out with a friend.


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?

Beach clean-upseco dives collecting trash and reef check intro. The last one was the one I enjoyed the most because it’s something I have never done before and it was interesting.

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

Yes, because you get to know the importance of conserving the marine life even more than before and because of that you watch out / pay attention that other divers / students do the same.

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

At first I wanna do the Working Internship Program at Crystal to gain more experience and later on I wanna do the IDC and become a PADI instructor.


And what about Koh Tao….

Favourite Restaurant?

Definitely Da’s Sandwich, but also safari because of the 2 for 1 offer and famoso, godfather and zest because of their delivery service even so it’s raining and all roads are closed.


How did you spend your non-diving days?

Hanging out with other people who aren’t diving, either on my balcony or at the Crystal Bar.

Where are, you heading to next?

At first I have to go back to Germany for a month, but after that I go to Australia, to work and fill up my bank account again and after that I want to drive through south America with a van and dive / surf all around the globe.
