YamanguchiI taught anybody who was interested in learning how to SCUBA dive.
I taught Discover Scuba, the Open WaterCourse, for those who were interested in learning how to SCUBA, also the Advanced Open Water Course, and.
Rescue Diver Course, as well as the CPR/First Aid Course.
And if I wasn't teaching then I was a dive guide, so we.
would take certified divers out to the dive site to do some diving.I was also part of the Micronesian Shark Foundation.
The owner of the dive shop i worked for, Tova Harel andNavot Bornovski were the founders of the Micronesian Shark Foundation, and so we helped out by tagging sharksand also research.
By keeping track records of the sharks, when its mating time, when its time for them to give birth,and also the over all environment they are in.
And once a year, around March thats when we have "shark week",and all our research results are turned in and of course, we take the guests' that attended shark week out diving inthe "hot spots", where the sharks are usually at.
PADI Divemaster Sam's Tour
Koror Republic Of Palau, PWI was a dive guide.
So I would take tourists' out on the speed boat, with a licensed boat operator and we take them out diving at the dive sites.
I was also a rock island tour guide/ nature guide, what we would do is: We take the guests' on the boat and wewould go cruising through the rock islands and stop at snorkeling sites and snorkeled for a bit, also, i would tell themhow our islands came to be and what the "rock islands" are made of, and what kind of animals and plants inhibit the rock islands.
I was also a Land tour guide.
So at the end of some tourist divers' trip, they like to end it by taking a land touraround our island.
So I would drive them around and show historical sites and other sites that were believed tohave some mythical significance to the people of Palau.I was also very fortunate to be part of "The Kids Sea Camp", an American Association.
Every summer, there's thisprogram, where kids that are certified divers get to travel to different countries to scuba dive.
And I was lucky to be one of the dive guides that was part of that program.
NECO Marine Dive ShopOffice Assistant
Koror Republic Of Palau, PWWhen i was an office assistant, i answered phone calls, directed them to whomever the caller wanted to speak to.
Ialso photo copied numerous papers needed for our office.
I also managed the time schedule and guest list for ourshuttle buses to and from the airport and to which hotel, and the number of guests for that hotel, and for this i had to be very attentive with the timing and scheduling of our shuttle buses.
I also, monitored the fuel for our fuelingtanks, had to make sure the fueling tanks where enough to fuel the boats coming in and cars also, and made scheduled arrangements for the SHELL fueling company to fill up the tanks when their almost empty.
Managed the diving schedule for the dive guides, wrote on the board the schedule for the next day or for the whole week, also booked people who wanted to dive with us, by contacting them through email, fax, or phone calls.
And bookingtheir hotel and everything else that they wanted to do when they came down to Palau for vacation.I was also very fortunate to be part of the annual fishing derby in Palau.
Its a very prestigious fishing derby.
I helped out by taking pictures of the sports fish and who ever caught it and after they weighed it, I'dwrite the number of how much it weighed on the fish, and kept record of who caught what and how much itweighed.
And i was very fortunate to work at this dive shop because they are the ones that taught me how to scuba dive, they were the once that certified me all the way up to being a dive master.
