Being a Divemaster-in-training has been more challenging than I anticipated, but I’m also learning a lot more about different types of diving, dive operations, and teaching divers than I thought I would.
Arriving in Bunaken was like coming home even without having been here before. The early morning landing in Manado made me arrive at the resort at 7am, perfect for having breakfast, getting familiar and doing the first dive at 11 that day. What a great way to start my 6 weeks here in Bunaken.
We are back for a second up-date on our DM adventure that started 2-3 weeks ago. Time is flying by as our days are filled and quite varied, from following guides, to practicing skills in 2 meters of water, to watching the good old Open Water videos (that has been a while…).
After spending three wonderful, still very, very busy weeks in Nusa Lembongan, I finally transfered over here to the beautiful island of Bunaken.
Ever thought of becoming a DM and dreaming of a dive-center in a location that has tropical beaches and waving palms? We have, actually we have many times… Thinking of places like Maldives, Fiji, Palau and other exotic destinations. You might ask: “how the hell did you end up in the harbor of Bitung”?
