PADI divemaster staff in Gorontalo can only be found at Miguel’s Diving.
Trained, Skilled & Certified
Miguel’s Diving is not only Gorontalo’s pioneer dive center. We are also the only dive operator in the area to have PADI divemaster staff. Actually, five of our full time staff are PADI divemasters. Our only international staff member has been a PADI divemaster for almost 20 years now. Our Gorontalo staff all recently completed their PADI training. As a result, guests of Miguel’s Diving feel safe with our trained, skilled and certified staff.
PADI Divemaster Training
Becoming a PADI divemaster requires successful course completion. Water skills are an important component of the course. Naturally, our four candidates loved this part of the course. They are all long time dive guides.
Classroom sessions require different skills. Included in this part of the course are important topics. These include supervising diving activities, assisting student divers and diver safety. A PADI divesmaster candidate will also study risk management and environmental awareness. Moreover, participants must pass both water skills and theory components of the course.
Our dive staff received an invitation from Mr. Frans Rattu to complete their PADI divemaster training. PADI Asia Pacific and Politeknik Negri Manado teamed up to offer a special opportunity. Only long time dive guides in the area received an invitation. Also, they must already be certified Rescue Divers. Additionally, candidates must have Emergency Response training or update within two years. All of our staff already had these PADI certifications.
They enjoyed the two weeks in Manado and the study time with friends in the dive industry there. Fortunately, one of their wives came along and helped keep everyone fed. During the required reef cleanup exercise, they found a sun hat accidentally discarded by a visitor. It had a decorative band around it. On the band was some writing in Chinese that said “blue ocean, beautiful day.” So, they decided it would be a great souvenir to bring back to Gorontalo for Miguel’s senior PADI divemaster. All it needed was a quick wash in fresh water!
