The role of a diving instructor.

In my opinion, being a diving instructor is one of the best jobs in the world! I get to live on a beautiful tropical island, get to meet hundreds of great people and get to introduce them to the amazing underwater world. This is particularly true here in Koh Tao where we are lucky enough to see some truly amazing sights. Recently there have been several whale shark sightings, there are always plenty of turtles around and thousands of other species of aquatic life. There are, however, many other roles a dive instructor has to fill in order for a dive shop to run as smoothly as DJL. People may not know this but instructors at times, are required to fill tanks, repair equipment, drive the taxi, sort out accommodation, organize rentals, work in the shop along with many other duties that go hand in hand with the tourist industry. This means that at any one time, any of the instructors here can fulfill any required role so that our divers have an enjoyable experience during their time at DJL and any concerns they may have can be addressed by any members of the team.

Being a diving instructor is one of the most enjoyable and rewarding jobs in the world, especially if you work at a school like Davy Jones Locker where you have a great team around you.
