In 1998 I first came in contact with the underwater life. While snorkeling in a bay on Curaçao, I saw through a mask underwater life. What happened there and why were all those colored fish so busy? It seemed like I was swimming in an aquarium!
Unfortunately my remaining holiday were too short for a diving course, which I would have done gladly because I wanted to know more about the marine life. Once back in the Netherlands I started looking for a PADI dive center and I took a PADI Open Water Diver training.
My first open water dive was in Bussloo, a local freshwater lake between Deventer and Apeldoorn. Visibility was not comparable to the tropical waters, but I was immediately captivated by this particular experience again and tranquility under water. This was the beginning of the dive virus that to date it still has me in its grip!
I thought it was delicious from the first day under water, I wanted to know everything about it and my life was completely dedicated to diving. In 2000 I became an instructor. I wanted to convey passion for diving!
That was and is the reason for the creation of Dive Place, in 2011 with a branch office in Utrecht. I still find it fantastic for both beginners and advanced divers may assist in the underwater world. It is the quality bar high because I know from experience how important safety is. At the same time diving FUN and there I spent a lot of attention!
Do you really learn to dive and a good foundation for your future diving career? Then I'd like to help with my knowledge, experience and my profound love for this particular sport!
