What most people say about diving with Paul is how relaxed, at ease and comfortable in the water he is and how easy he is to dive with as a buddy and guide. Well this doesn't happen over night nor without on-going training.

Paul has been around diving from a child way back in the .... well I'll leave you to guess for yourself. Twinsets, tech and rebreather diving were a natural progression for him. As for becoming an instructor all it took was someone to tell he wouldn't be able to do and that was it, off he went to prove he can and he's never stopped!

Currently, Paul is a PADI IDC Staff Instructor and he is a full trimix PADI TecRec Instructor and Trimix Gas Blender Instructor. As if this is not enough he is also a TDI Instructor; Hollis Explorer Instructor. In January 2017 Paul became a SDi IT Staff Instructor, which enables him now to train new instructor candidates at Instructor level.

On top of all that Paul is always continuing his own professional development by teaching and being taught; full cave diver is next on the agenda.

Paul has always loved diving on lumps of metal and is usually good for a tale or two about the history of the wreck. As for the wildlife he especially likes to visit the drop offs for the chance to watch the hunting jacks, barracuda and yellow fin tuna decimate the shoals of mackerel, followed by the groupers who like to clean up the aftermath!

Valerie PADi & SDI Dive Instructor at Lanzarote Dive Centre

Valerie #314602

PADI Master Scuba Dive Trainer Instructor EFR Instructor
Tec 50 Diver
PSAI Rebreather Diver

Over 1000 Dives

Deepest Dive 55M

What inspired Valerie to take up scuba diving were childhood memories of always being in the pool or even better the sea. Swimming with glass fish around the pier and seeing a ray "fly" pass underneath her. Valerie has always been passionate about various sea creatures, in particular seahorses and supporting the Manatees.

Valerie also believes that every dive is a debris dive and it has often been noted by other divers that they have seen her pick up plastic and all sorts whilst on a dive. The largest item so far was a half a paddle from a paddle boarder!

Valerie took up diving in 2010, which is where and how she met Paul. (He was already a tech diver and was just starting his mission to prove he could be an instructor!). Valerie caught the same bug and before she knew it she was a PADi tech 50 diver with TMx50 for a little bit of helium on the side, a PSAI rebreather diver and yes, a PADi Instructor too!

Jesus, IANTD and ISE Diving Instructor

Jesus

El Captainio
IANTD Instructor
ISE Instructor

My first scuba dive was in 2000. In 2010 I became a diving professional and started working as full time diving instructor which I am still doing today.

As an Instructor I have around 3000 dives and have dived in, Menorca, Lanzarote, El Hierro (Canary), Gozo and Malta. It was in Gozo and Malta that I was nominated for and then won the Maltese Tourism Authority "STAR" award. This award was in recognition for my work as instructor and contribution to scuba diving on the islands. I was the first non-English Instructor ever to win this award, with more than 1000 votes!

I have trained +300 divers from everywhere around the world and many of them have gone on to become active full time instructors and tech divers.

In 2015 I joined IANTD as an instructor and in 2016 I joined the Inner Space Explorers achieving Instructor level 1. I am the only Spanish instructor teaching at this level and I am also the only Tec Level 2 diver grade.
