Arno Gaulle

PADI Master InstructorArno started diving in 1990 when his friends encouraged him to join a scuba club with his other friends from University. Many years later his friends and family now have many active divers that enjoy diving together all over the world, with one more about to start learning to dive by doing their PADI Open Water Course

Diving with his family was and still is great fun but it really opened his eyes when he first went diving with a friend and he enjoyed the freedom of movement underwater. He began to dream of setting up a dive school in Phuket or Egypt to enable more non-divers to start diving. He passed his instructor exams with Scubacat Diving in Phuket, Thailand after being recomended to them through the IDC-Guide.com who encouraged him to make his dream a reality.

He has dived Belize, Fiji, Mexico, Florida, Bahamas, Scotland, England, Ireland, Canary Islands, Cuba, Jamaica, Thailand and South Africa.

Arno’s time outside scuba diving is taken up by travelling!
