Your PADI Course Director: Sascha Koppitz


Hello dear diving friends. My name is Sascha and I am a PADI Course Director. In March 2001 I was in Playa del Carmen, the so-called Riviera Maya, auf the Yucatán Peninsula as part of Mexico's Caribbean coast, learned to dive. The area in the state of Quintana Roo is known for its palm-fringed beaches and coral reefs. The FascinatiThe "underwater world" hasn't let go of me since then and so this passion led me to different places in the world, where I was always able to experience and learn new things. Over the years I decided to pass on this experience and knowledge to other people. Regardless of the respective training level up to the course director, one realization was always particularly important for me - you never stop learning and you can learn from everyone. That is why every experience above and especially under water is a valuable part of one's own spectrum in order to develop into an independent diver or trustworthy diving instructor.
