Favourite thing about diving: A great place to de-stress
PADI Master Instructor. EFR Instructor
Paula started diving on holiday in Lanzarote back in 2006 and immediately caught ‘the bug’. She was obsessed with the underwater world from her first immersion.
Paula continued with her diving education whenever she could get time off work! Eventually becoming an Instructor in 2010, after which she quickly decided to make the move to become a dive centre owner, and has never looked back.
She now loves introducing new people to the scuba diving world and hopes they will feel the same way she did after they first take the plunge.
Favourite thing about diving: The amazing aquatic life you get to meet.
PADI Master Instructor, EFR Instructor Trainer
Cat started diving in 2007 in Thailand, whilst backpacking around Asia. Although she had had no real interest in diving prior to this as soon as she started she was hooked! And it is for this exact reason that she enjoys teaching Open Water courses, seeing others come out the water as divers with that sense of amazement that she had felt. From Thailand, Cat continued her diving days whilst living in Australia before moving to Lanzarote to complete her Instructor´s course in 2010, where she has stayed since.
Favourite thing about diving: Exploring a world unknown to so many.
Manu CID Lanzarote
PADI IDC Staff Instructor. EFR Instructor. IAHD Instructor
Manu started diving back in 2010 on Benidorm Island (for those of you who didn´t know there is an island off the coast of Benidorm!). From a young age Manu was always interested in the water and diving but the opportunity didn´t arise until a friend of his gave him the chance to try diving. After 12 years working in Telecom business Manu was looking for a change and thats when the opportunity arose for him to move to Lanzarote and join us here at Canary Island Divers to become a Scuba Diving Instructor.
Favourite thing about diving: Flying underwater!
