Mark Stone Best Dive Job in the World

Hi everyone at blueseason bali. My name is Mark stone or stoney to my mates and i’m ready for a career change. I’ve been working in the glass industrysince leaving school at age 16. the jobs been great but i know it inside out & back to front. I’m bored & it’s not my passion. I own a small glass business one hour nth of sydney. It’s a one man operation so things can get tough sometimes & i’ve missed working in a crew of mates.

I’ve wanted to change careers for a couple of years now and have thought about moving to the islands on the great barrier reef to get involved in diving but people keep telling me i have a great little business and why don’t i just go snorkelling on weekends and holidays. They also said it would cost to much & take to long to do all the courses. So your competition is perfect for me. It’s not a prize, it’s a gift from the underwater gods themselves. My mates don’t get it, i don’t just love the underwater world, i’m in love with it. At present I work on a gym station, treadmill & strider for one hour every weekday morning to keep fit. A few days ago i spoke to a coach who said he’d never stepped foot inside a gym because life was a gym. He’s spot on.I went snorkelling at norah head yesterday & the waves coming over the top of the drop off gave my legs a great workout and I know with scuba diving you have to carry,wash & mantain gear. Better than being at the gym doing a workout.

My love for the underwater world started when i brought my father two goldfish for his birthday,then more tanks,aquarium clubs,my parents opened a aquarium shop,snorkelling & then an open water dive course.Then i started work ,bought a car & a found girls.diving was put on hold for a couple of years.Now i live 10 min from the ocean and love to snorkell, swim & do my paperworkwhile watching the ocean.I see whales, dolphines & perfect beach days.Iv’e snorkelled in vanuatu,samoa & the islands of new caledonia and it’s a perfect wonderland.sometimes i get a tear in my eye as i lay amongst the coral & watch as life goes on around me, It’s perfect but i’ve only been to the edge of the drop off. I’m ready to take the next kick of my fins & go over the edge with my mate padi & blue season bali.

THANKS,I CAN’T WAIT.your mate Stoney
