I moved to Curacao in September 2016 and wanted to expand my diving skills and get opportunities for diving more. A friend recommended The Dive Bus, and they suggested that I take their divemaster training. This turned out to be an eye-opening experience. Over a period of almost three months and close to 50 dives, I was exposed to every facet of running a dive shop, from organizing the diving and equipment, to giving informative and fun briefings, explaining the basics of diving to often nervous first-timers, demonstrating skills to students, finding interesting critters to show divers, guiding groups safely during "fun" dives, and on and on. I went from being an experienced diver to being able to help others enjoy the sport just as much as I do, and treating them as valued customers and not just dive buddies. With a combination of tough love, patience, humor, dedication, and unstinting professionalism, Ivana and the other Dive Bus instructors guided me on this journey. To anyone contemplating becoming a divemaster, or just honing their diving skills, I would recommend them without any hesitation. Whichever certification you get from them will be truly earned.
