Master qualified with NAUI & Go Dive November 2019

“As an intern at Go Dive Mossel Bay, I was exposed to
opportunities far beyond my expectations.

With Dive Master training being the main focus, the
regular baited, boat and night dives gave me more than enough time and
experience exploring Mossel Bay’s unique underwater landscape. The instructors
made my learning enjoyable, giving me any help I needed along the way, and
ensuring that I was ready to be the best Dive Master possible.

I was lucky enough to be given a number of opportunities
to assist with community, recreational and environmental activities. The
highlight of this, being the close partnership with Keep Fin Alive and their
Clean Oceans initiatives.

A plethora of tools and knowledge became available for
me, which empowered me to make an active change and difference through
education and community involvement.

I have been inspired and empowered to take the Clean
Oceans initiative to my home in Australia, where the fight for marine
conservation can become international.

SAPREC was one of the most fun and rewarding experiences
of the internship. Weekly visits to the centre equipped me with skills to take
care of injured seabirds, as well as raise awareness for their conservation.

The team were organised, friendly and professional, and
they were constantly arranging activities and ensuring they did their very best
to create a family atmosphere with Go Dive.”

What are you waiting for?

sight of the shore.”
