Finished his Bachelor's Degree in Forestry in 2001. A mangrove specialist.
Evolved and officially became a licensed Scuba diver in 2002 where he joined the team of Marine Biologists (for six years) in implementing the establishment and monitoring of Marine protected areas in Bohol island.

Became a PADI dive master in 2010 which by then, I believe, I can teach more on protection and conservation of Marine ecosystem. Joined the team of Tropical divers in 2012 . Became PADI dive instructor and started teaching on PADI courses in 2016 up to present.

Before I get into diving i worked as a salesman of diving equipment. I did wy PADI open water in 2008 and became a dive master in 2014.
I'm so blessed that my job is related to diving - that's the way I discovered another part of our planet - underwater world.
Enough words now - Let's go diving!
Nick Zotov
I was born, lived for a long time and worked in Chelyabinsk, Russia. Member of PADI since 1998. I started diving after the army in 1995, was engaged in speleology and cave diving. I was a pioneer in the right siphon and participated in the opening of the Chelyabinsk move in famous Orda cave.

Between 2000 and 2017, I organized and conducted more than 70 diving trips in such countries as Egypt, Sudan, Malaysia, Thailand, Burma, the Philippines, Australia, Cuba, Mexico, Belize, Panama, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Palau and others. Trained more than 500 people.

In 2017 I moved to the Philippines, Bohol Island, Panglao.
Alex Permiakov
Moved to the Philippines and started diving in 2015. After the first dive, I have fallen in love with the underwater world and made diving my profession. In 2016 I got carried away underwater photography, my works can be seen in the site's gallery.

In diving, I like the feeling of weightlessness and the calm that the ocean gives. Each dive surprises with something new - even in familiar diving areas there is always a place for pleasant surprises and discoveries.

I adore watching the progress of newcomers, how timid first steps are replaced by confidence and the desire to explore new places of diving. Smiles on the faces of divers speak for themselves!
