Scuba Diving Intern Mitch shares his gap year Divemaster experiences from Koh Tao

Name: Mitch Lawson



What were you doing before you joining the PADI Divemaster Scuba Diving Internship on Koh Tao?

I was studying at Lboro University whilst at the same time a member of Typhoon Squadron preparing me for Sandhurst .

What is your overall opinion of your scuba diving internship with DJL Diving?

I could not have asked for more from the diving at DJL. I was given the chance to explore a site outside of Koh Tao which was amazing. All the instructors at the shop have tonnes of experience each in their own speciality of diving. I did my intro to tech diving down to 45 meteres very early on and onto a wreck found by DJL.

Just graduated from University of Melbourne, trained to save the many lives of companies in which our society depends - Accountant.

Age:21 Nationality:UK

What were you doing before you joined the PADI Divemaster internship in Koh Tao?

Before going to Koh Tao i was working at Currys [electrical appliance store] generally wishing i was dead. After hearing about the course from a friend i started 2 weeks later.

What's your opinion of Koh Tao? Do you think it's a good place to take a Divemaster internship?

Koh Tao island itself is like paradise on earth. If you dont like cheap alcohol, cheap food and beautiful surroundings dont bother going. Everyone was very friendly and i felt i made some friends for life in my time out there.
