Ex Scuba Diving Intern Matt shares diving internship experiences from Koh Tao
What were you doing before you joining the PADI Divemaster Scuba Diving Internship on Koh Tao?
Working in Bristol as a sales consultant
What is your overall opinion of your scuba diving internship with DJL Diving?
I started my diving course with another dive school in Chalok at the other end of Koh Tao, so I have something to measure my experience against. Although I really enjoyed myself with the first dive school, at DJL I really felt like I fitted in. Everyone there was really friendly and I met some great friends that I still keep in touch with today. My overall opinion is that if you’re looking for a dive school to, not just complete your dive master internship, but have a really good time, then DJL is the place to go!
What bits of the Diving Internship did you find trickiest?
Getting up and being on time for the morning boat.
Do you think taking a scuba diving internship was a productive gap year experience?
Absolutely! I am now at university studying in my first year, and I would recommend an internship to anyone who is travelling or thinking about it.
Now qualified as a PADI Divemaster, do you think you'll continue your diving education? Are you interested in joining future wreck hunting expeditions?
Having recently returned to Koh Tao for a holiday, I am definitely considering investing in an intro to tech course and possibly a power boat handling course this summer.
How was your accommodation on Koh Tao ?
When I first arrived on Koh Tao I was put up in Pedangs (I think that’s how you spell it). It is where a lot of professional divers, both dive masters and instructors, live and is clean quiet and very comfortable.
What aspect of the internship did you enjoy most?
Meeting everyone and hanging about in one big DMT (Dive master trainee) Group. I miss everyone that I met there.
What will be your next diving adventure?
As mentioned before, I plan to try out some tech diving with the Tims and Frankie
What are you future plans?
Finishing my degree is obviously my number 1 priority but in my summers I intend to return to Koh Tao and maybe do some Dive Master work.
