Thailand Gap Internships- Koh Tao IDC Perfection!

As the September IDC finished up last week, the crew again did us proud by doing exceptionally well on the PADI Instructor Exam. As it was only a small group of only 5 Instructor Candidates who were extremely well-prepared and had a lot of Divemaster experience, Mark and I were expecting them to breeze through. They didn’t fail to disappoint. PADI Examiner George Wegmann had a quiet word on the boat with me after their Open Water presentations and praised the team for their fantastic skills both in the water and in the classroom. He told me what I already knew- that they were destined to be “very good instructors” and were “obviously having a lot of fun”… Thanks George!

The evening of the party brought a tremendous tropical downpour which stranded us in Johnny Specs’ Reef Bar for a few hours where the drinks flowed freely and some odd bets were made around the pool table before the group headed down to Choppers and Sairee Beach for the real IE party.
