Former mermaid, now Divemaster!

Here’s the place where you’ll find dive spot guides, equipment reviews and everything wonderful diving!

I started my dive love story in 2010 – within a year I got certified as an Open Water, Advanced Open Water and Rescue Diver in Venezuela. 2014 I continued this liaison in Playa del Carmen, Mexico where I did my Divemaster training and also got my Nitrox certification. I’ve also worked as a dive guide on Cozumel for a couple of weeks – one of the best times!

Diving with Underwater Scooters in Bonaire

By

Diving with Underwater Scooters in Bonaire During one of my first dive courses, I remember watching the PADI videos when they shortly talked about underwater scooters. Since then – that course dates back to 2010 – I’ve been looking for them more or less. I was never successful just until I found some underwater scooters in Bonaire for rent. Some of the local dive shops provide fun adventure dives and rent them. Of course, my boyfriend and I wanted to give them a try and had them for one of our morning dives. After a short introduction with a wonderful…

Review: Dive Mask Case by iQ

By

Review: Dive Mask Case by iQ I don’t own a lot of dive equipment, but I’m in love with my dive mask and I take it anywhere I go. Of course, I don’t want to pack it like it is, but want some protection so that the sealing doesn’t break. That had happened to me and I was even using a plastic box. But the plastic shivered and destroyed the sealing. Until recently I used the plastic box that came with the mask. It’s just very impersonal and I wanted something more colourful, so I went online and found this…

Diving in San Andrés with Blue Life

By

Diving San Andrés with Blue Life Crystal clear water, warm water, colourful fish = that’s what awaits you when diving San Andrés! Little over two hours by plane is what it takes to get from Bogotá to San Andrés. A bit of mainland and the rest is ocean! San Andrés is located near Nicaragua and most people wouldn’t think it belongs to Colombia. And exactly this island was my destination for four days. I only had one plan: dive, dive, dive. I didn’t really care what else can be experienced on the island – I just wanted to spend three…

Don’t dive in Cozumel

By

Don’t ever dive in Cozumel There’s this little island. It belongs to Mexico and some of you might have heard about it. Many cruise ships (eewwww!) stop here. Others may know it because the diving is supposed to be “oh so spectacular”. Here is why you should never, and I mean never ever, dive in Cozumel: The reefs are ugly and there are hardly any fish left in the sea Turtles, colourful corals, two meter long moraines, poriferans, fish in the brightest colours, sharks, underwater arches and caves in stunning coral gardens, an ocean so warm you think you’re taking…
