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.

    TecDeep Course September 2020 - I knew Mike was a highly experienced Tec diver and instructor so asking Mike to take me through my course was a natural choice. Mike was very patient when it came to the theory and spent a lot of time clearly explaining all the formulas needed for the planning of the dives and we never moved forward until Mike knew we understood each phase of the course. During the dives Mike would also take small videos to help us see our positioning in the water and to give us useful tips to help us be more comfortable for our next dive. I learnt a great deal during the course which has only improved all aspects of my diving. Mike is a very experienced and patient instructor who I would highly recommend to anybody looking into taking the Tec deep or indeed any other course. Until next time and thanks again Mike. Chris.

    IDC May 2020 - I took the IDC in very special conditions, right after the COVID-19 pandemic, which required strong organizational skills from the course director. I have to say that Mike did his best to make it happen, always being really flexible to my needs and schedules. I chose to do the IDC with Mike on Chris and Isma’s recommendation, my mentors during my Divemaster in El Medano, who had taken their IDC with him. And I couldn’t be any more grateful! Mike is a great professional in every sense of the word. Always caring about your learning and with a true passion for diving. It was a real pleasure to have his support during this challenging way to become an Instructor. I’m willing to get back to him for the Specialty Instructor preparation.

    IDC January 2020 + MSDT preparation. Mike was very patient and helpful from before the IDC began to after it finished. He had belief in my ability to teach when I wasn’t sure about it myself and took the time to help me build the confidence in my ability to do the IE. He was always available to help, in person or over whatsapp at any time. He knew exactly how to minimise the stress of the exam and make sure we learnt on the IDC whilst still having fun. He’a a wonderful teacher who I’d recommend to anyone looking at joining an IDC or taking any instructor specialties - I’d definitely go back if I want any extra specialties!

    IDC January 2020 + MSDT preparation. Mike is a great professional and a great person. He knows exactly what it takes to become PADI Instructor and guided me step by step to reach that target. He has a serious but fun approach, he's always doing his best to help and was available at any time I needed it. During the IDC with Mike, I did exactly the same exercises as at the Instructor Exam and he prepared me also mentally to focus on the right things. Mike had also an exemplary attitude during all the courses and during the Exam. I have only great thinks to say about him and a big thank you for his help to become PADI Instructor.
