New army of the kind

Update posted by Vanela Grace Torres On Dec 05, 2017

December 4,2016 was our final dive. Each of the candidates have to guide and lead dive. Our course director Tim instructed us to give problems to fellow candidates. The craziest problems that we could ever give without hurting any marine life. From assisting lost fins, hiding divers, annoying banging of tanks because you want to show something interesting, controlling the group, spotting stuffs and staying close, like, waaaaaaay too close to the dive guides, it was fun and exciting! There were moments where no one is moving at all and you can not even tell if its part of the task, is someone needs a rescue or they are just observing and appreciating the frog fish and the blue spotted sting rays that we saw a long the way! HAHAHA

After our three dives today, we did our snorkeler test! Tim made the craziest mix i ever tasted! my stomach wanted to hurl! The incredible part was after 5 minutes, everyone was drunk! It was an unforgettable experience!

Our course Director was very professional and approachable. He's always open to sharing stories and you can feel that he's very passionate on teaching! Im looking forward that he'll still be my course director on our IDC!

Finally, Sea Explorers really helped me out to reach my goal this year!!! Hard work pays off! Thank you Universe! One more step to be an Instructor. Hopes are up!

Let me be your dive guide when you come visit Philippines especially with Sea Explorers!

Dive Master course is the introduction to become a dive professional. Most of the people I talked to wanted their IDC right after the dive master course. That is why I wanted to do it as soon as possible as the theories are fresh in the brain cells.

We are three in the class, Celine who's from Switzerland, Niel who's also my co employee and Tim Bradley, our course director. With Gopro with a smile, its rest assure that all the things that we need are being taught.

We will be able to finish the course on the first of the December and we are planning to do the snorkeler test right after the pageant of our Christmas Party. Im a candidate with for the pageant, the first representative of the dive shop, its part of the job. Wish me luck. Winning and graduating would be nice. ;)
