A story of love and passion.
Take your passion. Really think about it. That “something” that you’d press pause on everything else for, if only you could or had to.
We were on different timelines, walking different paths, heading in different directions too, probably. Then we met, and we understood that what drove us was one and the same: the love for nature, the passion of sharing this love and this nature, the pain we felt for our world and what as humans we are doing to it. And the need to do something about it.
What drove us was one and the same: the love for nature and the need to do something about it.
A burning feeling that would light up for each finned shark, beached whale, monkey without a tree and bird with too much plastic in the stomach.
A joyful feeling of thankfulness for each wave racing above us, waterfall filling the air, hummingbird delivering its message and manta ray being just a manta ray.
“What do you want from that?”, we asked ourselves.
Share it. Feel it. Let it touch you. Enjoy it. Learn from it. Make people aware. Teach them. Let a shark teach you.
We love what we do. We became diving instructors because we needed to know what happens under the surface. We fell in love with this alien world that covers most of our planet, regulated by sharks and plants. Scuba Diving is our love. It’s what makes us happy on a sad day. What keeps us going despite the obstacles life throws at us. And we believe you should try and fall in love with it too.

Not to be cool (although it just comes with it, and who can complain?!), and not to be rich (there
is an old joke running in the dive community, that says that to make a million in the diving business you have to start with two), we teach diving.
But we got to the diving part after traveling. Traveling. With a backpack. Sitting on the side road with the locals, struggling with a good night’s sleep after a dodgy meal, missing buses and getting lost. And learning, learning, learning, learning. About humanity, about cultures and languages. About mistakes and successes of people. About the amazingly perfection of nature. We cried of happiness in front of a tapir, laughed of delight at the sight of dolphins, rummaged through despair for a lost world in a fish market of shark fins.

Instead of sharing it on social media and going back to our orange mocha frappuccino complaining about how expensive avocados are getting, we decided it was time to give people the same chance we had: to enjoy nature, to be awaken by it, to respect it and protect it.
So here we are, on a journey that we hope you’ll want to be part of….
