Blue Season Bali's IE Parties and BBQs
Imagine if you will. You have just spent two weeks undergoing the most thorough scuba diving instructor training in the world- the PADI IDC. You did this in preparation for what you thought (despite our insistence) would be a challenging IE.
You and your fellow candidates have all passed. It is now officially time to party. You have my blessing.
I first decided to make this series of pages after having a look over this site and realizing that while it did a great job of representing our programs and professionalism, it did little to show you that the social environment here at Blue Season Bali is really fun! Sure, we're your mentors and all that, but at the end of the day we're a good group of lads (and ladies). I love my job and I love working with some really funny people. I mean like "haha" funny, not "crazy" funny. Well, okay... both.
Day three of the PADI IE generally concludes in the early afternoon. We will be there on the beach when you get your certificates. After the official closing by the PADI Examiner, it's time for a bit of food and drink. Conveniently enough, the IE usually closes about ten meters from a great beachside pub and restaurant- with superb food!
After taking an hour or two to let your success sink in, everyone's off to shower and later meet for dinner. We'll generally have dinner and drinks at one of the many excellent restaurants here in Sanur. Blue Season Bali's organized involvement with your celebratory activities ends after dinner. We do, afterall, have a business to run!
However, I can tell you from my own experience that an IE party can grow into an all-night festival extravaganza- invariably ending up in Kuta. Few will escape unscathed and sunrises are often seen. You and your fellow candidates will have worked together for at least a few weeks- and often a few months- making this an excellent excuse for a final "Hurrah."
I grew up in the heart of BBQ country and I can tell you we're flippin' some mean meat around here. Get some sausages. Get some burgers. Now get some cheese on those bad boys. Throw 'em on some toasted buns with some grilled onions and bam, you're in business. Our industrial-quality grill (pictured right) is possibly my best friend. Sad, but true ... yet very tasty.
The guy you see in the picture is Phil- my housemate and good friend. He lost his hand shortly after this picture was taken. Man, I love that grill. Phil had been warned.
We have about two barbecues per month, with one starting before each PADI IDC. These barbecues are great icebreakers for incoming interns and a good way to expand the experiences of our day guests. Basically, they're just a great opportunity for people to relax after a day's diving and have some fun.
Please take note - it is not uncommon for a perfectly respectable evening barbecue to devolve in to an all out pool party.
I have seen it with my own eyes... and it is wonderful!
