Joe’s Gone Diving

Since 2021 I am happy to be part of the team at Joe’s gone diving. We can offer IDC facilities that are absolutely unique in Bali and the team at Joe’s is just as passionate about teaching diving and the underwater world as I am.

I love sharing my experience of teaching scuba diving in different countries, without being pretentious! Being a scuba diving instructor for nearly 20 years, I still love teaching all levels of courses and I still learn things myself with every course that I teach!

I hope my courses are about more than just learning the skills and knowledge to become a diving instructor. I hope I can share my passion with you. Passion for diving, passion for teaching, and respect for our underwater world.

Talk to you soon! Marcel
