Lots of work and totally worth it

I recently completely my IDC with dive careers via Deep Blue Dive Seafari. Our instructor was Marie-- she was fantastic! It was great to connect with someone in the classroom who has a wealth of knowledge of teaching and the underwater world! Before I began the IDC, I thought it was going to be easy-breezy... a walk in the park. Well, it wasn't. It was a lot of work, and I'm so grateful that it was-- as I feel more confident than ever to start my career in the dive industry. I would recommend this course, the company, and our course director to anyone who is looking to complete an IDC

Q. When did you complete your instructor training?
A. October 2016
Q. What is your nationality?
A. USA
Q. In which language did you do your IDC?
A. English
Q. Who was your Course Director?
A. Marie-Lise Roux
Q. What was the best part about your instructor training?
A. Repetition of underwater skill performances
Q. Would you recommend us to friends and why?
A. Yes! Before I signed up for the course, I had contact with Mark. He responded quickly and to the point. Throughout the course, I felt comfortable and my course director (Marie) went out of her way to help in any time of need.
Q. What convinced you to do your instructor training with us?
A. Originally, it was the dates. They fit my schedule perfectly. Some friends also recommended Dive-careers and put me in touch with Mark.
Q. What was the weakest part of your IDC and why? Also please suggest how we can improve.
A. I would say the theory was most difficult, but also a bit of organizational skills on my (and the other students') part. I brought all of my gear with me to the IDC, however, I was unaware of some of the additional gear/materials we would need (ie. pocket mask, compass, whistle, etc). Many of us have those things, but just didn't think to bring them. It would have been beneficial to know in advance in order to avoid the cost of buying these supplies again (at the island rate).

Great IDC

I really enjoyed doing the IDC with Marie. She had a great personality and was very patient teaching. She really made sure you went into the IE ready for anything. Thanks again Marie.

Great IDC, amazing people and beautiful place

Scenery that cant be beaten and staff that were amazingly helpful and friendly made for a great experience during my IDC. The guys at Deep Blue Seafari made me feel like a part of their shop family and did everything they could to make my time there as easy as possible. The shop, their boats, the staff, everything was 5 stars. Mark the course director wasn't bad either. :) All in all a fantastic place to do an IDC.

deep blue seafari idc

What a great experience! The owners and staff could not do enough to make our stay and learning experience there as great as possible. The diving was awesome with deep blue seafaris many dive trips and saw many critters and flambouyant cuttlefish on night dives but now need to return for some more caves after a taster!
