Some words they say about me

“Gerard means good mood inside and outside the water. On top of being a responsible “daddy” that makes me feel safer, he helps a lot to make this sport something very exciting. It was a pleasure to met him and dive together… and I hope it was not the last time we do it!”

Maite Larra

PADI Advanced Open Water

“If you want to feel safe and learn to become a good diver, Gerard is a very good instructor. He takes always care about you and make things simple and safe. I’ll always remember when we were together, surrounded by sharks, short on air on the safety stop, and with a good judgment you managed the situation in a good way. With him you are in good hands.”

Jose García

PADI Advanced Open Water

“Gerard is very close and attentive. He takes time to explain all you need to clarify any concept in a very pleasant way. Always ready. He creates a safe and relaxed atmosphere that converts a dive into something very relaxing and unique. Perfect balance :)”

My dive sites

I got my first diving certification in South East Asia and I was diving there later during my holidays in several contries: Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam and Sri Lanka. I’ve been diving also in Crete and Egypt for pleasure.

My professional training as Divemaster and Instructor took place in Barcelona, and here is where I looged the bigger number of dives thanks to my work as Divemaster.

But there is still a lot to discover!

Happy to receive the award of Elite Instructor 2018

I'm very happy with the official recognition of my efforts in the training of divers throughout 2018. Not only I could guide a lot of dives with already certified divers or show the underwater world to many new people but I also was able to certify more than 100...

Get to know your diving equipment

A good diving equipment is essential to dive safely and comfortably. The equipment will help you breathe underwater, protect your skin, regulate buoyancy and make swimming easier.

The importance of a good judgment

The good judgement is a very important quality for all the professionals in recreational diving. You should always decide if you enter or not the water according to the performance level of all the participants.
