From Helsingborg, Sweden Scuba Instructor Andre Engstrom 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.

Swedish

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. Here is some explanations and reasons why. 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 continuously for 200 metres. This can be with any stroke however it does need to be continuous without stopping. There is alternate option and that is you do a 300 metre mask, fin and snorkel swim. Some do find this easier to the 200 swim. You also have to be able to tread water or float for at least 10 minut [...]

Why does my scuba mask fog up?

Fogging scuba or snorkeling masks have been a scuba diving issue since scuba diving first started.A foggy mask can ruin a dive. Here we will try and work out why does our scuba masks fog up? The basic principle on why a mask fogs is a simple one. In the simplest term, temperature inside the mask is greater than the outside of the mask. The temperature difference occurs because our body temperature inside (skin, forehead, breathing) is around 37 degrees Celsius or 98 degrees Fahrenheit and the water on the outside of the mask is less than the water temperature. Very basically, the temperature difference causes condensation (assiste [...]

What I look for when Employing a Scuba Diving Instructor

Here are some tips about what I, the boss looks for when I am employing a scuba diving instructor. Being a PADI Scuba Diving instructor is one of the best jobs in the world. Given that PADI has dive centres in 186 countries around the globe, this could give a dive instructor the opportunity to travel and work. I don’t think there is a dive instructor out there that does not dream of working their way around the world and diving in exotic locations. However, with over 170,000 PADI Pros already out there and 1,000’s of new divemasters and instructors coming through each year, only the best will be able to fulfill the dream. [...]
