I admire how passionate they are in teaching. Cheers guys.

Great course.

Bas and Jason both made the course very fun and extremely informative. I felt fully prepared for the IE and I would (and will) recommend them to anyone looking to do their IDC.

Feedback

Had a good time in general. However, would be better if I had a formally structured orientation for my course that was over a week. Felt a bit lost during first few days.

Going the extra distance!

Wow.. I was thoroughly impressed by Marco and all of the course directors for their patience is appreciated beyond what words could describe. They helped me get to the point of grasping the concept, applying the "rules", and then allowing me to explain it back to them to ensure that i had correctly understood what and why I was (specifically in physics). I had heard that they were great, but I didn't realize the extra effort that they put in in order to ensure I was confident in the subject matter. Thank you all!!!

IDC COURSE

Hi Mark

If any Divemaster will come to do the IDC, please ask him, if he ever assisted 2-3 OW Course and a Rescue Course. If not, he should do this before starting the course. Otherwise he will have the same problem as me. My DM Course was about 2 1/2 year ago and then you don't remember all the skills and steps. Anyhow it was a very good experience and i will come back to finish it.

Congrats on the exam. I am sure all of those extra fees seem worthwhile now. Enjoy life as a dive instructor.

Would do it again if I had too!

A very friendly, relaxed, professional enviroment, eases divers through their courses effectively and efficiently. Buddha view on Koh Tao is well worth the time and money. Many instructors and divemasters around to answer questions about diving and travelling around Thailand and the world. Many happy people to befriend here. A great place to meet people while transforming your life with an exciting, wondrous career choice. I highly recommend hanging out on koh Tao with the likes of Buddha view people. Not only do you meet new friends, you are well connected in the dive industry with experienced, well travelled people as your course directors, Marco Gervasi, Chris Freestone, and of course Mark Soworka. You would be hard presses to find better teachers.

I look forward to the next time I meet up with the dive careers crew for the IDC.

Cheers all

Bruce Cameron.

DMT in Koh Tao,

It's litterally swimming and breathing under the water with fishes.



If THIS seems interesting for YOU ? HERE YOU ARE:



*Think about all the submarine life you could see.

*What about WHERE you could do this ?

*Are you still reading this ?



Life is short, get a life.

Best choice!

I took part in the IDC on Malapascua from 26th February until 11th March 2014. I enjoyed every single minute of it. I especially liked the whole structure of the course, i.e. the balance of classroom sessions and practical exercises, the preparations for the IE, the patience and the overall positive atmosphere. In retrospect I must say the IDC there was the best choice.

Fun DM course!

Chris Freestone as a Dive Master trainer actually made this course and stay at Buddha View remarkable. He`s excellent in what he`s doing, always gives constructive feedback and makes studying and diving lots more fun! No: it was just fun and great! Thanks Chris!

best decision of my life

I made the journey to Koh Tao with one goal in mind. To become a PADI Instructor. After the Instructor Development Course with the guidance and support of Marco and the Team at Buddha View, I was well prepared by the time the examinations rolled round. I walked away not only as a dive instructor, but as a dive instructor ready to and confident enough to step into the world and begin to teach. I can't recommend Buddha View and Dive-Careers enough! I would do it all again in a heart beat if they would let me :)

Great experience

Doing the dive master training with Dive Careers was and it is a great experience. So much, that I decided to finish the future courses with them.

The instructors were pretty attentive and professional, but friendly at the same time and other students very helpful and relaxed, so in the end of my 2 month training I felt like I left part of my family on Ko Tao.
