How to become a divemaster in Koh Tao, Thailand

After 3 years of travelling and 120 dives around the World, during my trip to Turkey in October 2012, I felt it was time to go to the next step in scuba diving.

Diving in Kas: a dive into history in Turkey

We often forget about Turkey when discussing scuba diving in the Mediterranean Sea.

Underwater & Beyond… This is the story of how I started this diving blog. These two words are the ones I chose to describe what I do, what I love and how I always do it. Simple but true.
