Are you sure it was an instructor development course you signed up for? Usually it doesn't start with dives in open water and and 500$ also sounds too cheap.. Get a lot of rest and good luck on your future dives, equalising problems are the worst!

Well also you have to consider the plane tickets and living expenses such as hotels and transportation. OP could have just been referring to the price of the scuba diving.

The cost of living in Micronesia is way less than most of the "developed" world, add a 0 to the $500 and you get your equivalent vacation money elsewhere.

Not quite true. Yes, the cost of living is lower (though this is rapidly increasing), but hotels cater to tourists, and are often pretty expensive. $500 is probably just for the scuba diving course, not for his whole trip.

Don't worry, after college you'll be able to earn back your 500$ in no time, and by then you'll have no free time to travel anymore. It's called losing your life earning it.

Why go to college at all if your dream is to be a scuba instructor? Also, aren't there classes in your area or in a nearby city to become an instructor? From what I've seen, scuba classes aren't ocean dependent.
