There is nothing wrong with enjoying the amazing view of the ocean and crashing waves accompanied by beautiful sunset but once you go diving, you suddenly realize that you have been missing the point of ocean this entire time."
My professional dive career started in 1993 as one of the first local dive-masters in the Maldives, working on a dive safari boat. Within the time period of 1993 to 1996 I obtained experience diving different regions of Maldives on multiple dive safaris. Joining Eurodivers in 1996 was a huge step in dive career as it opened opportunities to become one of the first 10 dive instructors in the Maldives 2 years later in 1998. Priceless experience obtained within the next 11 years working in multiple resorts and becoming familiar with different regions and ways to run dive operations led to establishing own business – Dive Club Maldives - and running it with passion since 2009.
Serving – Local Tourism
The Maldivian tourism is based on one island one resort concept and the target markets for the most of the resorts are luxury travelers. The dive school operated in the resorts base their prices on these luxury travel market. There is not much effort made to provide dive service to the budget divers. The introduction of local tourism and guesthouses in the inhabited islands had paved the way to open tourism for the budget travelers. However with the operational difficulties faced by guesthouse operators in facilitating diving services are the reasons they do not provide these services to budget divers.
