BALI, Indonesia -- Indonesia-based dive outfit Blue Season Bali today launched a recruitment campaign to train someone for the best dive job in the world – that of a PADI-certified dive instructor on the island of Bali: For free.
Blue Season Bali Director Jonathan Cross said: "It's a great life. The successful candidate will go scuba diving every day, get a suntan, spend seven months on the paradise island of Bali and get up close and personal with the world's most diverse marine ecosystem. And we'll pay for it."
The winning applicant will be chosen from the best one-minute video blog submitted to Blue Season Bali on the theme of 'Why I Deserve the Best Dive Job in the World.' The competition opens on October 30th 2010 and closes on February 28, 2011. Anyone with a sense of adventure may apply. No diving experience is necessary.
Said Cross: "Our lifestyle is too good to be kept a secret. We will pick one person from all applicants who we think is most deserving of this training: to learn, from scratch if necessary, how to become a certified PADI scuba instructor."
The package is worth nearly $16,000 and includes all training necessary to become a PADI scuba diving instructor- free accommodation for seven months while in Bali, free equipment, free teaching materials …and free suntan lotion. Said Cross: "The successful applicant will spend a lot of time exploring the underwater world, but the sand, sun and surf of Bali are incredible, which is what the lotion is for."
The winner's daily activities – aside from learning how to teach sizzling backpackers the ins and outs of scuba – will include making a weekly video blog, enjoying the superb adventure activities and nightlife of Bali, and writing about their experiences. Said Cross: "A PADI dive instructor's life is filled with excitement and adventure. Imagine your office filled with coral reefs, palm trees and sea breezes, instead of copiers, fax machines and computers. This life is a reality for PADI dive instructors all over the world and it will soon be a reality for the winner of Blue Season Bali's 'Best Dive Job in the World' contest."
As a PADI 5* Career Development Center, Blue Season Bali holds the industry's highest accreditation for dive operators, a reflection of their years of commitment to quality in diver education. Blue Season Bali was chosen by PADI Asia Pacific as the winner of this year's 'Outstanding Dive Business Award' and has received numerous industry awards for quality in training and customer service.
The island of Bali in Indonesia is world renowned for its superb diving, excellent party and beach life, kaleidoscopic Hindu culture and hot, sunny weather. Voted as the "World's Best Island" by the readers of Time and Travel & Leisure magazines, Bali is a top international destination for divers and surfers alike. Located in the very cradle of global marine diversity, the variety of fish and coral species to be found there is unrivalled in South East Asia.
