Our Profiles of the Month – January

Dive Professional of the Month

Location: Phuket, Thailand

Dive Center: Andy’s Scuba Diving

Profile: https://www.rateyourdive.com/profiles/jonathan-walsh/

The rateyourdive users are convinced of his skills:

  • “Jon is such an amazing dive instructor. Very knowledgeable and informative. He goes above and beyond to make sure that everyone is safe and comfortable. He also is a great photographer! I only wish I could have Jon as my instructor on all my future dives.“ (Laura)
  • “Jon is very professional both in and out of the water. I didn’t dive for seven years, but after just one dive with Jon I felt like a fish in the water again. I added my peak perfomance buoyancy certificate to my resume and received some useful tips and tricks along the way. Jon is very enthusiastic and knowledgeable, he sees all the things you would have probably missed. He’s also an amazing photographer, I went home with a lot of great footage of my underwater experiences. Can’t thank him enough! Will return as soon as possible to continue my adventures with Andy’s Scuba Diving, hopefully diving with Jon again!” (Bob de Jong)
  • “When I first went to Jon I was just an AOWD and took a recommendation from a friend to go and speak to Jon about doing my Divemaster course with him. After a 2 hour initial meeting, it was clear that I had come to the right place. Jon is a fantastic teacher and extremely knowledgeable about all things diving. He has guided me all the way through my Rescue course, Divemaster course and even helped me prepare for my Instructor Development Course. I couldn’t recommend him more for any type of diving. His professionalism is incredible and on top of that he is a great guy. Thank you for all of the support over the last few months Jon, I’ll see you soon buddy!” (Eamonn P.)

Dive Professional of the Month

Location: Mindelo, Portugal

Dive Center: I Dive Spirit Porto

Profile: https://www.rateyourdive.com/profiles/daniel-fernandes/

Reviews:

  • ”He took care to make sure i was doing everything correctly as I set up the equipment. When we were in the water he was making sure I was checking my air and keeping good buoyancy.We saw a starfish that had fallen of it rock and was upside down in the sand, Daniel carefully placed it back on the rock before he continued. Would recommend to all planning a dive in Portugal if it was close.” (Eric Owens)
  • ”Daniel is a really passionate teacher! He is patient and know exactly how to make you feel in confidence with the theory and the practice, I spent an amazing time in discovering this activity with someone who give you his passion! Thanks again Daniel!!” (Helene)

Dive Center of the Month

Location: Marsa Alam, Egypt

Profilehttps://www.rateyourdive.com/profiles/deep-ocean-blue-diving-center/

The rateyourdive users recommend that Dive Center:

  • „We are not yet experienced divers and were the first time in Egypt. By chance we came across this dive center. We felt very well and very well taken care of right from the start. The dive center is in a very good condition. We borrowed everything except ABC equipment and were also advised very well here. Our guides were all very well trained and responded very well to us and our wishes/experience. It is very familiar and offers a great service. We were always picked up in the morning by a shuttel and taken directly to the dive sites. I can warmly recommend the dive center and look forward to seeing you again.“ (Lisa)
  • “Actually, we came across the Deep Ocean Blue Team more by chance – fleeing the Christmas hustle and bustle and booking a hotel at the last minute, as long as a dive center was on site…. And we hit the bull’s eye! Very friendly, familiar and at the same time very professional base. The dives were varied, well prepared and well guided or briefed. Boat and shore dives were offered. We did not need rental equipment, but what I saw was in a good and well-kept condition. The team was really good, friendly and very competent, the procedures routine and well coordinated. Everything was just right and we’ll definitely be back.” (Jens Jasper)
