“As a divemaster, you focus on overseeing and helping in individual cases when a student is having trouble with a skill. The first time I was called to help a student practice a skill I was nervous and very excited, however my anxiety was quickly replaced by pride as my student succeeded in the skill like he had never had a problem. This excitement at teaching one of my favorite activities only grew as I was assigned to a Broadreach boat. I like to think I had the best boat of kids on the water. Between helping in the water and onboard I began to see the other side of Broadreach, which I was not shown on my previous trip as a student.” Patrick, college alumnus
