"I am one of the owners of Master Divers and the General Manager. I am a PADI and SSI Instructor but took a step back from teaching to consentrate on building the dive centre of my dreams. We work hard to ensure that every diver has the best experience possible. I couldn't be prouder of what we have achieved"
"I've always loved being in the water, but I'm truly in love with being under the water. It's a difficult feeling to put into words, but beneath the surface is definitely my happy place!"
“Diving has an amazing capacity to keep you engaged, there's always something new to learn or something you can work on perfecting. Whether that's new course, new disciplines or even new conditions. That's what keeps me interested; the infinite capability to grow”
"Diving to me is an environment that is relaxing and devoid of stress, a great place to rest your mind. The more people I can introduce to this amazing environment, the better I think the world will be."
"To me, diving opens a world of complete freedom. On land you're restricted to two dimensional movement, and are always constrained by terrain, obstacles, and gravity. Those are all stripped away underwater, taking with them any thoughts or problems from the surface."
"Diving combines three of my loves; the outdoors, animals, and exercise. Most days I still cannot believe I get to do this for a living!"
"To me, diving provides the perfect career and lifestyle balance. It helps keep you physically and mentally fit, plus you meet an amazing range of people and have plenty fun along the way. As the old Confucious saying goes 'choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life'. And that's exactly how it feels, diving is always a pleasure, never a chore."
"From the moment I took my first breath underwater on my DSD, I loved diving. The feeling of freedom underwater and learning more about aquatic life makes me really happy."
"Being an Instructor is incredibly rewarding, sharing such a spectacular experience is the reason I do what I do. Diving is almost certainly the closest thing to being on another planet, being weightless gliding through the water. You are visiting a new world for the first time and it’s something you’re never going to forget."
"Underwater photography combines my 2 biggest passions in life. I’m so happy to be able to help people capture and share their diving experience with others."
"The combination of a love of the sea, the beauty of the island, the slow pace of life, and the incredible community here makes Koh Tao the perfect place for me and my husband to plant our lives. We are so thankful for this opportunity at Master Divers and love waking up every day in paradise."
"I love the sun, I love the sea 365 days a year. I have been travelling around the world and then i found this little paradise Koh Tao to settle down. I got attached to the island because of its unique atmosphere and life style created by my passion for people who share their love of the sea and diving."
"I wanted a job with great vacation time, but then realized, it’s better to have a job you don’t need to escape from. That’s why I became a Diving Instructor. The best job in the World. My first Discover Scuba Dive changed my life forever, and I wanted to pass that feeling on to others."
