My mentor, Nina Horne. She was more a friend than a teacher. Reaching a next level of diving skills was more learning from her experience while having a chat with her than just studying the dive theory.

During your scuba diving internship which of the additional Marine Conservation ‘ECO’ program activities did you take part in and which did you enjoy the most?

Dive site clean up and Reef Check intro.

Do you think our additional Marine Conservation ‘Eco’ program was beneficial to your Professional level scuba diving training and if so why?

Yes. Next to better understanding which responsibility we as diver have about the ocean I learned practical buoyancy skills for example when I cut a fisher net of an coral.

As a qualified PADI Divemaster what are your future plans with regards to scuba?

Not sure now. Definitely I am gonna do my Working Internship at Crystal to gain more experience. After that I would like to work in different dive centers I gonna meet while my travelling.

And what about Koh Tao….


Favourite Restaurant?

Da’s Sandwich and Sunday all u can eat pizza at Neptune.

How did you spend your non-diving days?

Hanging out with my fellow Crystal Dive Divemaster candidates.
