12th August 2014 Print

Indonesian-based diving company, Blue Season Bali, has launched the third edition of its incredible “Best Dive Job in the World” competition, giving one lucky winner the chance to train to become a PADI-certified dive instructor on the tropical island of Bali.

To be in with a chance of winning this amazing  prize, diving enthusiasts will need to submit a 90 second video highlighting “Why I want to be a professional PADI dive instructor and WIN the Best Dive Job in the World.” Candidates are encouraged to showcase their sense of adventure, dive and travel experience, as well as their expertise with social media, marketing, photography and videography.

The competition will run from 1st August until 31st October 2014. Blue Season Bali will then select eight finalists to join them in Indonesia for a six-week training programme to become certified PADI Divemasters as they compete for the grand prize. Ultimately one lucky candidate will win a package which includes all training to become a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer; free accommodation while in training; full set of Aqualung equipment; teaching materials; and a full-time work contract with Blue Season Bali. 

The “Best Dive Job in the World” offers an incredible opportunity to experience Indonesia’s world-class diving and magical underwater beauty on a long-term basis. Home to over a quarter of the world’s entire marine life, the Indonesian archipelago boasts more sea species than anywhere else on earth with over 3,000 different varieties of fish and 600 coral species. This is coupled with an endless choice of diving locations, from exhilarating drift diving and deep water trenches to extensive reef diving and wreck diving at many World War II relics, for divers of all ages and abilities.

Among the most stunning dive sites in Indonesia are Raja Ampat, a tropical aqaurium covering 9.8 million acres of land and sea that holds 75% of all known coral species in the world, as well as Bunaken Marine Park in North Sulawesi which boasts around 20 top dive spots for visitors to discover. Also not to be missed are Cenderawasih Bay National Park in Papua, the largest marine national park in Indonesia and famed as a playground for the world’s largest fish, the whale shark; and the island of Selayer in South Sulawesi, gateway to the spectacular Taka Bonerate National Park which is the third biggest atoll in the world. The 80 kilometre long tropical island of Selayer is swathed in rainforests and surrounded by many pristine white sand beaches. 

With over 17,000 tropical islands, an endless array of coral and some of the most biodiverse settings on the planet, Indonesia presents wonderful possibilities for diving.  Testament to its importance as a hot spot for marine life, the archipelago was recently declared the world’s largest sanctuary for manta rays in a move that further supports the destination’s ecotourism initiatives. So take the plunge and dive into a magical underworld on the ultimate dive holiday to Indonesia!
