Alban is our French mascot. Raised with ham and butter cheese baguette and wine in his baby’s bottle. He often left France to live in different parts of the world: USA, Venezuela, Mexico, Singapore and Spain (Barcelona being his city of heart, even before Paris!). Since small kid (small … it may surprise that he would have been as today he is 2m02 .

Alban is a lover of the sea, sailing the waters of Brittany and spearfishing there. However he first did discover scuba diving. Shortly after he stared the second phase by passing his PADI Open Water in 2012. Oddly in the waters of the port of Singapore! This did not stop him and he became addicted, diving from the Caribbean to the Komodo Islands through and the Red Sea or the Maldives. Of course he has dived the French coast from Brittany to the Mediterranean.

This passion for scuba diving took over after working for nearly 15 years in pharmaceutical research and industry. Although Alban is a doctor by training. He decided to stop everything to devote himself solely to teaching diving. Coming to Aussie Divers for his PADI Divemaster in Phuket. He found a great team, welded and extremely professional. He had no choice but to take his PADI IDC Instructor Course and stay there! Since he started working, Alban has never tired of day trips to the Racha Islands or the Phi Phi Islands. The waters and tropical underwater life, its wrecks, each time from a new angle.

Le français

Alban est notre mascotte française. Elevé au baguette jambon beurre fromage et au vin dans le biberon, il a souvent quitté la France pour vivre dans différentes régions du monde : USA, Venezuela, Mexique, Singapour et Espagne (Barcelone étant sa ville de coeur, même devant Paris!). Depuis tout petit (petit… cela peut étonner qu’il l’eusse été sachant qu’aujourd’hui il mesure 2m02…), Alban est un amoureux de la mer, naviguant les eaux de la mer Bretonne et y chassant en apnée.

Cependant il n’a découvert la plongée sous marine que plus tard, passant son PADI Open Water en 2012 dans les eaux du port de Singapour ! Cela ne l’a pas arrêté pour autant et il est devenu accro, plongeant des caraïbes au îles Komodo en passant par la mer Rouge ou encore les Maldives, sans oublier bien sûr les côtes françaises de la Bretagne à la Méditerranée. Cette passion pour la plongée sous marine a pris le dessus après avoir travaillé pendant prés de 15 ans dans la recherche pharmaceutique.

Bien qu’Alban soit docteur de formation, il a décidé de tout arrêter pour se consacrer uniquement a l’enseignement de la plongée. Venu chez Aussie Divers pour son PADI Divemaster à Phuket, il y a trouvé une équipe formidable, soudée et extrêmement professionnelle. Il n’a eu pas d’autre choix que d’y passer son cours d’instructeur PADI IDC et d’y rester ! Depuis qu’il a commencé à travailler, Alban de se lasse jamais des excursions journalières aux îles Racha ou aux îles Phi Phi, ses eaux et vie sous marine tropicale, ses épaves, chaque fois sous un nouvel angle.

Alban es nuestra mascota francesa. Criado con baguette de jamón y mantequilla con queso y vino en el biberón, a menudo dejó Francia para vivir en diferentes partes del mundo: Estados Unidos, Venezuela, México, Singapur y España (¡Barcelona es su ciudad de corazón, incluso antes de París!). Desde pequeño (pequeño … puede sorprender que lo hubiera sido sabiendo que hoy mide 2m02.

Alban es un amante del mar, navegando por las aguas del mar de Bretaña y pescando submarino allí. Sin embargo, descubrió el buceo solo más tarde, pasando su PADI Open Water en 2012 en las aguas del puerto de Singapur! Esto no lo detuvo y se volvió adicto, buceando desde el Caribe hasta las islas Komodo a través del Mar Rojo o las Maldivas, sin olvidar, por supuesto, la costa francesa desde Bretaña hasta el Mediterráneo. Esta pasión por el buceo se hizo cargo después de trabajar durante casi 15 años en la investigación farmacéutica. Aunque Alban es médico por formación, decidió dejar todo para dedicarse únicamente a la enseñanza del buceo.

Al venir a Aussie Divers por su PADI Divemaster en Phuket, encontró un gran equipo, soldado y extremadamente profesional. ¡No tuvo más remedio que tomar su curso de instructor PADI IDC y quedarse allí! Desde que comenzó a trabajar, Alban nunca se ha cansado de las excursiones diarias a las Islas Racha o las Islas Phi Phi, sus aguas y la vida submarina tropical, sus pecios, cada vez desde un nuevo ángulo.

Do I Need to Know How To Swim to Scuba Dive?

This is a question that I often get asked, and really it is not as simple as YES or NO. If you want to become a certified scuba diver by doing the PADI Open Water Diver Course, the answer is yes. In the PADI Open Water Diver Course it is specified that you have to be able to swim 200 metres. This can be with any stroke. You also have to be able to tread water or float for at least 10 minutes. The reason for this is not for the fact that scuba diving requires you to swim. But rather it is for your and your groups safety. In the unlikely event that your BCD (Buoyancy Control Device) was to falter then there would be no device to kee [...]
