Why I started Diving: I started dive because i have always been a water person and i was very curious about the underwater world. So when we planned a trip to Thailand i decided to take my Open water in Sweden. After the my first breath underwater i was already hooked. Since then i have traveled to many of the best dive site over the world.
What keeps me diving: There is so many places to go to and so many reefs to explore. But i enjoy every day i go out for a dive here in Moalboal because our reef are just stunning.
My favorite thing to do in Moalboal during my surface interval: Pack a picnic and head to Kawassan falls early in the morning so you have the beautiful waterfall all for yourself.
Some of my favorite creatures: My favorite creature underwater is our beautiful sea turtles. They have been around for 110 million years, since the time of the dinosaurs. The green turtle that is very common here in Moalboal and can weigh up to 317 kg. They are so relax underwater and often take a nap on the corals. Turtles can hold their breath for hours if the rest and sleep underwater. They just need to inhale 1-3 seconds at the surface before they dive down again. Every time a see a Turtle i get a BIG smile on my face. We can spot sea Turtles at all of our dive sites here in Moalboal.
