It’s show time again and directly after the recent October Koh Samui IDC I hopped on a plane to Indonesia and for the first time ever I missed a PADI IE on Koh Samui! There’s no time for the wicked though and I immediately started to teach a new IDC on Gili Air! That was not before I did a dive straight off the plane! PADI 5* IDC Center Oceans 5 had arranged for a dive trip at the North Eastern point of Lombok, which allowed to hop on their boat, straight out of the airport taxi and dive, before I even set foot on the island this time! I could get used to that!

We did a combination of presentations and a couple of dives and today we hit the full on IDC button, although, since we started a few days early, we’re already ahead of schedule and it looks like we will have a very relaxed IDC.

More updates on this current IDC will follow and if you’re interested in participating in one of my IDC programs, the next IDC is scheduled on Malapascua in the Philippines for 20th November with 5* IDC Center Sea Explorers followed by the last IDC of this year, scheduled to start 4th December in Khao Lak, Thailand with 5* IDC center Seadragon.
Early in 2013 we start again with programs in Koh Lanta and Koh Phangan, check the 2013 schedule here.
