Everyone should do PADI Rescue Diver course - Here's why!

 

Diving with friends is lot of fun

 

From my first day I felt warmly welcome and after a month the feeling still lasts. - Petra, DMT / Living Colours Diving Resort

Diving is a sport that I got interested in years ago when I did a PADI Discover Scuba Diving -dive while being on holiday in Thailand. Three years ago I finally had the opportunity to take my PADI Open Water Diver course. All the way from the beginning my love for diving has grown bigger and bigger for every dive. Last spring I went for a one month dive holiday in Thailand. When I got back home I just couldn't stop thinking about diving. After a while I decided that I want to sign up for a PADI Divemaster course.

From the beginning I had in mind that I wan't to go somewhere I haven't been before. I chose South East Asia, because I'm interested in SE Asian cultures and I love the food. Also I feel safe when travelling here. After all there isn't many places in the world where you can travel alone safely as a woman. During last summer I was searching on Internet for places to go and where I could do my Divemaster training. I had heard about Living Colours earlier and many people (like my mom!) recommended North Sulawesi and Bunaken National Park for excellent diving.

So here I am now on Bunaken island doing my Divemaster course. Bunaken is a lovely small island with a friendly and laid-back atmosphere. From my first day I felt warmly welcome and after a month the feeling still lasts. I really have fallen in love with this remote small island and it's people!

Before I could start with the Divemaster training I had to take the Rescue Diver course. I can't compare the Rescue Diver course with the other dive courses I've taken before, because the content is totally different. There was a lot of training on and under the surface and I learnt a lot of good new skills during the course.

I improved my compass skills and safety thinking and learned how to help divers in distress. It was a really fun course and I absolutely recommend it for everybody who wants to improve their diveskills and learn how to prevent and manage problems and accidents. After all these are skills that all divers can benefit from in their everyday life.

So how my Divemaster course went? You'll hear from it soon enough!
