Unlike other tests, which are in fact serious business, the Snorkel Test is very un-serious.

Nevertheless, Tiago, one of professional scuba diving Divemaster interns in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, took this test very seriously.

Tiago recently sat for and passed his Divemaster exam and, as a fully qualified PADI Divemaster, was required to pass this additional social test before being accepted into the professional diving fold.

During celebrations, which included the supportive graduates from the February Instructor Development Course, Taigo was put on the spot to the test.

The video below illustrates what’s involved in the Snorkel Test. Tiago was suitably speechless afterwards.
