Meet Your Course Director

My name is Michal - but friends call me Mike.

I am a PADI Course Director and I am ... in love with diving.
The passion for diving is a lifelong companion for me - my first diving course was in 1991. The following years brought more courses in different organizations with different instructors. In 2004, I became a PADI Instructor and Tec Diver. During my dive life, I met many passionate people, met extraordinary people fascinated by the underwater world, visited the most beautiful dive sites in the world, and realized my own passion for underwater photography.

    Divemaster Course July 2019. Working with Mike throughout my internship was great, as he taught me not only all the skills I would need but also why I would need them. I would definitely recommend doing a course with Mike if you are looking to have fun while learning in a safe way!

    IDC May 2019 + MSDT preparation: -The bit more than two weeks spent with Mike and team in Tenerife was a brilliant experience, which I absolutely enjoyed. The two days of IDC prep was a very valuable refresher of the demonstration-level skill circuit and dive theory. This time also helped breaking the ice and getting to know the other instructor candidates in the group.The IDC itself was very intense, with a great balance between theory, pool and open water sessions. Mike brings with him him a great passion for diving and teaching in a very relaxed manner, which also helped us overcome our nerviousness and stress. He explained everything patiently and with practical examples. On the IE Mike was accompaniying us all the time, to ensure we perform to our best, and nothing distracts us from focusing on our goal. After the IE, the MSDT preparation was a "joy-ride", with some nice dives and real life tips and tricks on how to be a successfull instructor. All facilities for the training, and logistics of the two weaks were absolutely superb. Also big thanks to Kasia and Garry who supported Mike on the IDC delivery, they were very approachable for any help needed with translation, logistics, or just a bit of fun. Happy bubbles and thanks a ton Mike!"

    Instructor Specialty Courses 2019 - Since completing my IDC with Mike in 2016 I have found Mike to be always there with advice, tips and training. The 'after course' help is fundamental to any instructor as we are always learning every day and every way. I have also been with Mike on Speciality Instructor rating courses for Full Face Mask, Drysuit and many others and I find his help, guidance and way of teaching me as an instructor to teach is a great aid and very thorough. Safe diving, Lets Get Wet!
