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.

    IDC November 2018 + MSDT Preparation. My IDC, in Tenerife in November 2018 was a great experience. Mike was and is one of the best mentors to have! Not only for the IDC, but aswell for the following course I took with him, he made it so easy to learn, adapt and use what you've learned, but still it was a tough time and very motivating to see everybody growing. We're now all more than prepared to not only teach, but to enjoy it aswell. Special thanks to Ubay and Kasia who gave us all a very strong hand!

    IDC November 2018. I found the IDC with Mike the most valuable and highly enjoyable experience. The course content was excellent with a good balance between theory and practical application, which I think was a great way to learn. I have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone who is serious about becoming a scuba-diving instructor. Gracias Mike!

    IDC November 2018. The IDC certainly came with some stress, especially in the beginning. However, this ensured I was fully prepared for the IE which then became the easiest part. I highly recommend this course.

    Instructor Specialties November 2018. I decided to put a bunch of specialty instructor certs under my belt, did an internet search, found Mike, contacted him, got a positive reply from him to my request that I would like to go back to scubaschool and be his scubastudent, packed my gear and flew to sunny Tenerife. He put together a busy schedule and we dove into a two-week training. From day one I felt that I was in good hands. Mike was always ready to share his knowledge and experience either we were in the classroom or under the water. He readily passed the tips and tricks to me whether the topic was side mount diving, scooter diving, full-face mask diving, or night diving (just to mention a few of the specialties that we covered). The feedback (discussions, briefings, debriefings, photos, and videos) that he provided helped me a lot to polish my skills and definitely will help in the future when teaching students. After two weeks I had no questions unanswered and there is no question about his mentoring skills. It was a great experience to be taught by Mike and hopefully I will be able to manage to come back for more training.
