Fun Learning Experience

After doing my PADI Open Water and PADI Advanced Open water course with Sunshine Divers, I knew that this was the place I was going to complete my Divemaster Training. I've always really appreciated the family like atmosphere around the dive school and whoever passes through to complete any course here will always be introduced with such professionalism and positive feelings.

Sam PADI DIvemaster at Sunshine Divers

I started my PADI Divemaster Course straight after completing my PADI Rescue Diver program at the start of this year and overall it took around 8 weeks to complete. I had a steady balance of taking my time and really enjoying all the dive sites around Koh Tao and gaining the experience to make sure I was proactive and always assisting courses and helping out whenever I was needed.

My favourite part of the Divemaster Course was assisting the senior members of staff on their courses whether it was a PADI Discover Scuba Diving Program, PADI Open Water,  PADI Advanced or PADI Rescue Divers Course.  I also enjoyed the chance to help out in the PADI Instructor Development Course as a problem student where i really gained further assurance in my personal ability as a PADI Divemaster.

I will treasure the whole experience forever and I am very grateful for all the senior members of staff, the DMT's/ DM's around me at the time of my internship and all the friends I have made throughout my training that helped me in their individual ways! 

I am now currently working at Sunshine Divers as a PADI Divemaster and I'm loving every minute of it!

LEFEVRE YOAN  Instructor Development Course at Sunshine Divers

December 2011, with Natalie Hunt & Tim Hunt

"Hello, my name is Yoan and I just finished my IDC in Koh Tao with Sunshine Divers. Thanks to Natalie Hunt, I am a happy and proud instructor because she was very helpfull with everything, during the course and before the course helping in everything I needed for the Instructor Course. It was a successfull course and I enjoyed it because the staff was professional and the organisation was perfect. I was scared about the english because it's not my mother language, but I had some french and spanish support with the staff instructor and I could choose the language of the exam.

Thanks Sunshine and Natalie! I really recommend!"

IDC 2011

"In June 2010 I completed my Instructor Development Course with the enthusiastic Course Director and Manager of Sunshine Divers Natalie Hunt.
Starting with fun scenarios for the EFR Instructor, learning standards through to academic presentations all done in our gazebo on the beach.Sunshine offered me a relaxed atmosphere for this course and with only 4 candidates per group allowed us to ask Natalie or Staff Instructors all the questions we needed and get the constructive criticism we needed to be good instructors.I found my Instructor course to be the best PADI course I have taken, I learned so much and had confidence in my training and Instructors but more importantly I really enjoyed it."
