Sairee CottageAfter so many emails, so many great blogs and so many amazing videos and interviews, the team at Sairee Cottage Diving on Koh Tao in Thailand have finally picked a winner for the all-inclusive PADI Divemaster Package competition which was run in conjunction with Scuba Diver – congratulations to Christina, from Germany!

Christina will not only train with Sairee Cottage to become a PADI Divemaster over a period of three months, but she will also focus on eco-conservation efforts on Koh Tao.

She will start with the EFR course, followed by the PADI Rescue Diver course and then the Divemaster course. Her trip will start in the beginning of August.

Christina will be taught by Maddy Barker, one of the best PADI Divemaster teachers in the industry. She said: “I can't wait to teach Christina and fulfill her dream of becoming a PADI Divemaster! We will focus not only on passing, but truly making her one of the best Divemasters out there, which will increase your job opportunities, safety, customer service and, most important, protecting the environment as a Marine Ambassador!”

A word from Christina

Hey everybody, my name is Chrissi, I am 26 years old and I live in the beautiful city of Cologne in western Germany, where I am studying cultural anthropology and education. 

I first got in touch with diving during my travels in Thailand in 2013. I even did my Open Water at Koh Tao, so I already know to what an amazing place I will return to.

What makes this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity so special to me is that I get to fulfill my dream of becoming a dive professional and even combine it with what I stand for – the protection of our environment! I am super-enthusiastic to get involved in different projects to protect and clean beaches, reefs and therefore the ocean.

I am looking forward to learning and helping as much as I can and to getting to know surely great people!

Best wishes from Cologne and see you soon,
