Diving

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

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…

Review: Dive Mask Case by iQ

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…

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!

It’s not even the only one in the world – there’re others in the Caribbean and other places too, where you can find many sunken treasures. Let’s jump in – MUSA Isla…

Cozumel Diving

Don’t 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…

San Andrés Travel Tips – a Paradise for Divers with Perils

San Andrés Travel Tips – a Paradise for Divers with Perils A two-hour flight from Bogotá, off the Nicaraguan coast, is a little island paradise – or at least that’s what I was promised by many Colombians and Google image search. It is a paradise for divers, but the rest of the island did not impress me at all. If anything, it got me thinking… I flew with Viva Colombia and landed…
