“Where is your favourite place in the world to dive?” Is a question I get asked on almost a daily basis. “Brisbane”. My answer generally surprises people. “Brisbane??” But yes, scuba diving in Brisbane has been the absolute best scuba diving of my life. I have dived in Thailand, Finland, Philippines, Vanuatu, Cambodia and all around Australia, but the dive sites around North Stradbroke Island surpass anything else.
My journey to Scuba diving began on the Great Barrier Reef at the age of 13. Coming from the landlocked countries of Czech Republic and Switzerland never quelled my passion for the sea. As soon as I turned 18 I quickly received my Divemaster and Instructor and have been teaching ever since. In this nine year journey I witnessed many Coral Reefs suffering damage from anchors, rubbish, bleaching and algal overgrowth. This spurred me onto raising awareness about the health of our oceans and our dependence on them. Now I use my knowledge about the underwater world, love for conservation and excitement of meeting new people to promote projects.
