What PADI scuba diving Internship program did you complete?
What were you doing before you joined Crystal Dive?
I was working in Melbourne at a Mitsubishi dealership looking after their online advertising.
How long have you spent completing your scuba diving internship?
Too long. 10 or 11 weeks.
What was your favourite part of your scuba diving internship and why?
The whole experience has been pretty awesome, but the one thing that will stick with me the most I think is seeing two whalesharks at once. I feel like that is a once in a life time thing.
What was your least favourite and why?
Nothing really comes to mind. It took me a while to finally get the swim tests done, so I would have to say that.
Who was your favourite instructor and why?
I got along well with pretty much all the Instructors but I feel like I’ll get the hard word if don’t pick my brother, Rob.
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 tried to get involved in as many of the Eco programs as possible but my favourite would have been making and welding clam nurseries.
Do you think our additional Marine Conservation ‘ECO’ program was beneficial to your Professional level scuba diving training and if so why?
Yeah definitely, it’s shown me that with enough people caring about marine life and the environment, we can make a difference.
As a qualified PADI Divemaster what are your future plans with regards to scuba?
Next I’d quite like to do the Videography course, then hopefully try to get some work in the industry.
And what about Koh Tao….
Reef Bar. Always a good vibe there, awesome staff and do some of the best burgers on the island.
How did you spend your non-diving days?
If I wasn’t diving the following day, that would often mean there would be a few drinks involved that night, so my non diving days usually involved sleeping in and taking it easy.
Where are, you heading to next?
I’ll probably be heading back to New Zealand to make some more money and plan my next adventure.
