International Instructor Profile #3 – Andre Engstrom – Svenska – Dansk – Norsk – English

Andre Engstrom – PADI OWSI Instructor – Svenska – Dansk – Norsk – English

From Helsingborg, Sweden and left in 2010 as he needed to find a warmer climate to work.

In Sweden Andre worked on a boat between Sweden and Denmark where he served ice cold beers for the passengers. He has allways loved the sea so it was pretty easy to adjust to the life as an instructor.

Andre is unique in the sense that most instructors have fallen in love with scuba diving. Andre actually fell in love with a girl that fell in love with scuba diving and he just tagged along. She has long gone but Andre is still here.

Andre is one of the easiest going dive instructors and exudes the Swedish relaxed attitude to life which makes him one of Phuket’s best dive instructors. His easy demenour makes him a great PADI Open Water Course and PADI Advanced Open Water Course Instructor.

Andre was one of the first instructor to join the Aussie Divers Phuket team and been with them for almost six years.

Andre’s greatest claim to fame in the scuba diving industry is that he saw four whale sharks in one day at Richelieu Rock. A feat that he is constantly reminding the boss of (who is still yet to see a single Whaleshark).

Hailing from Sweden he also has a very good Swedish meatball recipe, which makes for a great feed at any of our staff gatherings & at Christmas parties.

Andre is a PADI OWSI has the following specialty instructor certifications, Enriched Air Nitrox, Peak Performance Buoyancy and Deep.

Favourite Phuket Dive Site: Shark Point
Favourite Underwater Creature: Octopus
Most Missed Home Food/Drink: Mum’s Meatballs
Favourite PADI Course: PADI Open Water Course
Favourite Underwater Conservation: Shark Guardian
Languages/Dialects Spoken: Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, English

Andre är ifrån Helsingborg i Sverige. Han åkte till Thailand 2010 då han behövde lite bättre och värmare väder.

I Sverige arbetade Andre på en båt som gick mellan Helsingborg och Helsingör, där han serverade is kalla öl till passagerarna. Han har alltid älskat att vara på sjön så omställningen till att arbeta med dykning var inga problem alls.

År 2007 när Andre var på ön Koh phangan så träffade han en vacker svensk flicka på en strand. Hon var dyk instruktör och Andre blev förälskad i både henne och i sporten. Ingen vet var flickan håller hus idag, men Andre har hittat tillbaka till Thailand och är fortfarande förälskad i dykning.

Andre är rankad som en av Phukets bästa dykinstruktörer. Han är väldigt lugn och tålmodig i sin stil att lära ut. Hans favorit kurser är Open water och Advanced open water och med sin svenska noggrannhet och lugna stil så känner alla hans elever sig trygga.

Andre var en av de första instruktörerna att arbeta för Aussie divers Phuket och har varit med i teamet i snart 6 år.

Andres bästa dyk upplevelse var när han dök med fyra valhajar på Richelieu rock i Similan. Den dagen slutar han aldrig att prata om. Han påminner ofta chefen om sin upplevelse ( chefen som aldrig har sett en valhaj ).

Född i Sverige så är han en mästare på svenska köttbullar, vilket det bjuds på när det är personal fest eller julfest på kontoret.

Andre är PADI instruktör och kan även utbilda de följande special kurserna : Enriched air nitrox, Peak performance buoyancy and Deep .

Favorit dyk i Phuket ; Shark point
Ser helst under ytan ; Bläckfisk
Mat han saknar mest ifrån sverige ; Inlagd sill
Favorit PADI kurs ; Open water
Språk ; Svenska, Danska, Norska och Engelska

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 then the answer is yes. In the PADI Open Water Diver Course it is specified that you have to be able to swim 200 metres with any stroke and 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 yours and your groups safety. In the unlikely event that your BCD (Buoyancy Control Device) was to falter then there would be no device to keep you afloat [...]

PADI Motto: Go Places, Meet People, Do Things Anyone that has completed his or her PADI Open Water or PADI Scuba Diver Course and would have heard that motto.

Snappers Phi Phi Day Trip Scuba Diving Padi Aussie Divers Our Dives

Is Phi Phi the best day trip scuba diving in Thailand?

Yesterday we went scuba diving with Jake and Tara as they did their PADI Advanced Open Water Course with Aussie Divers Phuket. We headed off to the Phi Phi Island group for two dives and a third dive at Shark Point on the way back. This was the second time Jake and Tara had done this trip, the first was a few days earlier for the PADI Open Water Course. The Phi Phi Islands are less than 3 hours day boat ride from Phuket in the south of Thailand. The first dive started at the north tip of Koh Bida Nok. The north face is a wall dive and has a straight drop to 25 metres. The wall is stunningly covered by soft corals of many colors including [...]
