What PADI scuba diving Internship program did you complete?
What were you doing before you joined Crystal Dive?
I came to Koh Tao for 5 days to do my PADI Open Water course on a 2 year traveling trip.
How long have you spent completing your scuba diving internship?
I’ve been on Koh Tao for 4 Months
What was your favourite part of your scuba diving internship and why?
Made a lot of great friends which is pretty stellar. Also assisting courses was amazing and seeing the excitement of the people who are learning to dive is pretty cool.
What was your least favourite and why?
When all my friends who I did the Divemaster program with left.
Who was your favourite instructor and why?
I have two, one is grumpy Sue. She convinced me to do my Advanced and then to carry on to do the PADI Divemaster course. The other is the bearded twin of Stanley Tucci.
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?
Dive against debris, land and beach clean ups, my favourite was dive against debris.
Do you think our additional Marine Conservation ‘ECO’ program was beneficial to your Professional level scuba diving training and if so why?
Yes I loved it, during dive against debris our dive times were way longer so we really had to work on our air consumption. This helped me a lot because when I first started diving I was terrible on air and know I can beat Beard on air.
As a qualified PADI Divemaster what are your future plans with regards to scuba?
I only plan 3 days ahead so I can’t answer that, I plan on fun diving in a few days.
And what about Koh Tao?
Koh Tao was amazing. It’s truly a great island with so many people from all over the world who are here for a common interest in scuba diving
How did you spend your non-diving days?
Hanging out with friends, having some casual beverages with the crew.
Where are you heading to next?
I honestly have no idea where I’m going next or if I’m going to try and stick around Koh Tao.
