Good morning from our team here in beautiful Bali. After the first ten days of the month I have taken a much needed day off and we’re now ready for the final phase of The Best Dive Job in the World 2012 competition. Today marks the announcement of our second place prize.
Some weeks ago, we sat down and had a chat about all the great feedback we were getting from the entrants and their supporters in this competition. We had planned to give only one prize this year, compared with last year, but make it much more special. However, we realized that there were too many great applicants to pick just one. We decided that all this great support meant that we should offer a second place internship prize as well this year.
Naturally, all of our fantastic Top Ten finalists are in it to win the seven months of instructor training, including equipment and materials with us here on the Island of the Gods. Well, only one person will win that prize, so please have a look at our announcement for the second place scuba diving internship being given away:
1 month BSB Eco Internship (starting from any level)
It is now a scientifically indisputable fact that human beings are having a profound effect on our environment. On an individual basis, we can all take small steps to start improving the situation, and ourselves in the process. Our Eco Internships can benefit you in a number of ways:
• Eco internships are increasingly important for divers looking to gain employ in the diving industry and looks impressive on your resume. As an Eco-Intern you’ll be involved in the day to day Eco Internship in Bali.
• Eco Internships are designed to help divers put their training into practice in a real-life environment and see how they can be part of the solution, not part of the problem.
• Learn more about coral, fishes and the marine environment.
• Show future employers that you are environmentally conscientious.
• Contribute to a global dataset on corals, marine debris and other marine environmental issues.
• Be a more well-rounded and traveled person.
• Plus… hey, it’s cool.
Our Eco Internships are run by our own marine biologist who will ensure that your Eco Experience is educational, effective and most of all, enjoyable.
For each of our Bali Eco Internships, we include all of the following:
Airport transfers (return).
Four (4) weeks’ single accommodation in a local Balinese losmen.
Five days of Eco Internship diving each week – total of twenty days research diving.
At least two (2) dives each day – location of dives depends on the projects ongoing at the time.
Lunch and soft drinks are included on every diving day.
PADI AWARE Shark Conservation Specialty course
PADI Project AWARE Specialty course
PADI Coral Reef Conservation Specialty course
One extra PADI Dive course – Open Water / Advanced / Rescue or PADI Specialty courses (depending on your current certification level)
This Eco Internship is completely free (normally (USD2900) and is a big “thank-you” from our team here at Blue Season Bali for your participation in the program.
If you’re one of the Top Ten, please post here or email us if you would like to be considered for the second place prize (of course, that is, if you don’t win The Best Dive Job in the World). Tom and I are still poring over the awesome entries from all of you, so everything is still up in the air. One thing is sure, we have committed to publishing our decision on the 15th, and we’ll let you know both winners on that date. In the meantime, thanks once again from all of our team here at Blue Season Bali for your outstanding support for The Best Dive Job in the World 2012.
