Harvey Mills – PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI)
I was originally set to take my IDC in Koh Tao Thailand and decided to visit a friend who happened to be working at Blue Marlin, in Gili Trawangan where I decided to take some fun dives. Whilst diving with Blue Marlin I got talking to Holly, and further into the conversation realized that she was the Course Director and conducted their IDC program. I knew straight away after the first conversation I had with Holly that I would rather do my IDC Course with her, here in Gili Trawangan. She was very easy to speak to and explained the whole program to me, so I guess it was an easy decision.
Even before the IDC course had started Holly gave up some of her free time and conducted some theory sessions with the group to get us off to a good start.
I feel that I have learnt a great deal from my IDC Course and it has given me a lot of confidence in both diving and in life as a whole. Holly can be very serious at times, but also knows how to have a laugh which in my opinion provides a great mix.
I feel that the IDC at Trawangan Dive provided a great learning environment, alongside some great people with a fantastic course Director. I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.
