How long have you spent completing your scuba diving internship?
What was your favourite part of your scuba diving internship and why?
Learn how you can lead a dive and assisting the instructors during courses.
What was your least favourite and why?
I am always scared to get lost during the dive.
Who was your favourite instructor and why?
It was Dirk, because I’ve done my advanced open water with him and he was my mentor during the dmc.
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’ve done the beach-clean up, cigarettes-butt-challenge, and the reef check was the one I enjoyed the most, it was very interesting.
Do you think our additional Marine Conservation ‘ECO’ program was beneficial to your Professional level scuba diving training and if so why?
Yes It was very helpful for me, but on the other side it was also very shocking how much trash is on the beach and in the ocean. Since I’ve done that I realise that I have to do more for the environment.
As a qualified PADI Divemaster what are your future plans with regards to scuba?
I want to work as a divemaster and get some more experience, maybe later go on to do the IDC.
And what about Koh Tao: Favourite Restaurant?
I don’t have one favourite Restaurant but I really like Coconut Monkey, Famoso and Zest.
How did you spend your non-diving days?
Learning to write and read thai, go for a massage and spend time with the people here.
Where are you heading to next?
I’m going to stay here till March and then I’m going back home to start a hospitality management school.
