Diving Tenerife ~ Unexpected Divemaster Interns

Well Amarilla Divers was all prepared to start their summer Divemaster Intership program with Suzy & Jason and we was well on the way with their training.

All of a sudden we had a phone call from a rather crazy young lady called Lucy who was asking if we had any places available on our intern program, as she wanted to complete her Rescue Diver course & divemaster...

After a very strange chat on the phone and then bumping in to Lucy at the harbour whilst we was doing a Night diver Specialty, Lucy joined our Divemaster course the next day.

Lucy is a student at Plymouth University and is studying commercial Engineering. She has been diving for a while and has her HSE Commercial ticket as well as BSAC qualifications.

Lucy's first dive with Amarilla Divers was to El Puertito to see the turtles and she had a great dive there.

Since then Lucy has completed these courses.

Lucy has been a delight to have in the shop and has not stopped laughing or smiling since day one. She has even decided to stay on for another 5 weeks with Suzy to get more experience of working as a Divemaster.

Lucy has been to many different dive sites, has been on night dives, boat dives, shore dives, wreck dives and even Mermaid dives, yes we will add some pictures to our Facebook page.

Next we have Joe who arrived a couple of days after Lucy, but was recommended to us by Lucy herself.

Joe arrived as a Rescue Diver too and is also from Plymouth Uni and is studying Marine Biology.

He went straight out for his first couple of dives and again ended up at El Puertito with the gorgeous Turtles. He also decided whilst here to set up a Urchin Control project on our house reef and so the Divemaster interns have been carefully setting this up and monitoring it's progress over the past few weeks.

Joe did an excellent map of Tabaiba whilst here and managed to get lots of diving in with lots of different dive sites. He also went on to complete his Assistant Instructor Course with Neil. This is something we offer our Interns FREE if they have been certified for a minimum of 6 months already.

Joe had a visit from his parents whilst here in Tenerife and we took them for a Discover Scuba Diver course with Neil and also Lucy had a friend Tash here at the same time, so we all went down to El Puertito to see the Turtles.
