“What made me be a scuba diver? Initially, it was solely due to curiosity. I then learned to enjoy the feeling of anti-gravity and peace during diving. The beauty of underwater is indescribable by words until you experienced it. As an Instructor, I am passionate about sharing the love of underwater nature with my students and I am inspired to create confidence in divers. I also like to share my knowledge and educate to my students so that we are able to enjoy diving and have fun within the limit. PLAY HARD & DIVE SAFE!”

“Whenever I watch underwater documentaries on Discovery Channel, I get mesmerised by the beauty hence I was attracted to take up a diving course. After I became a certified diver, I realised that underwater was not only incredibly beautiful and amazing but the serenity of being underwater also gave me peace. My curiosity built my interest to have diving continuous education and I gained more knowledge during my diving continuous education. I slowly discovered the importance of diving safely so I decided to become an instructor. I wanted to pass my knowledge to all divers.”

“As my memories serve me right, my very first scuba diving experience was with Discovery Scuba Diving Certification.  The fun and excitement were unbelievable. I can’t wait anymore thereafter and I got my best friend Chui Keng as my dive buddy to start the course. later we managed to completed both the Open Water n Advanced Open Water courses.

I really  enjoy the peaceful silent serenity of the undersea world. In the deep blue sea where vision is bluish, I can feel n hear the wonders of the sea: fishes seeking for food, corals waving gracefully. I also have a closer contact with my  inner soul as I listen my bubbly breathing air in the quietly undersea. The excitement continues as I dive against the buoyancy of the undersea current. I’m so happy. the sensational feeling of weightlessness under the water cannot be describe with words that express my feelings.

Currently I’m perusing my dreams one step further as a diving instructor. as the course goes on,  the aspect of safety and responsibility are part of the process to built awareness to be a better diver. now I not just only learn and enjoy diving, but also  more towards taking care the safety to others undersea.

I love ocean, I love diving, I love to be a diver. What about you?

Get fun, safe and enjoyable scuba diving experience with us. See you soon.”
