My passion for diving started without realizing I would like it so much. Four years ago, a fríend of mine suggested me to do the open water course. As I am always open minded to try any kind of sport, i said to myself “why not?”.
In the beginning, I didn´t feel very confident underwater, but, after diving so many times (most of them, here, at Lanzarote) I started to be so fond of diving, that I decided to go further and do the divemaster course, a year ago.
I used to live in Madrid (such a big city), but as I prefer sea and nature, I started to think about the idea of moving to Lanzarote, and sent my cv to Rubicon diving. After two hours, they called me and I started to work there a month ago.
Now, I can say, I am very happy with my decision, because I feel very comfortable with my colleagues at work. Everyday I learn something from them. All of them are very professional and they make you feel at home.
Jasper Willems from Rotterdam who is only 20 years old is currently studying International business and management but also likes to use his spare time to play hockey and coaches a team of youngster from 15-16 years old. One of the things he enjoys the most is scuba diving. This summer, he chose his diving hobby and decided to take it to the next level , the proffesonal Divemaster programme M, to gain more experience as part of his future work….
JASPER —- ” My uncle (Fernando) took me a while ago when I was around 10 into the swimming pool and introduced me to swimming. Around 8 years ago he also took me on a Discover Scuba Dive and I discovered a new hobby. After not being able to continue with it for a few years I decided to do an open water course at Rubicon Diving. The reason for doing the course at Rubicon Diving was because my uncle was already diving with them and told me that they were really friendly and professional. After doing the course, I was totally into diving again and decided to do my advanced course the year after (of course at the same diving center).
This year, for my studies, I needed to do an internship for a foreign company so I decided to go to Valencia , Spain where I got to learn spanish. When I finished it I received a proposal to do the DM at Rubicon Diving (7 weeks training and helping at the Dive center). Now I am doing my dive master and I think I made the right choice.
I’m enjoying the programme very much, learning lots and having some good experiences that are also helping to open my mind for my studies of International business and management because there are always many different people from all over the world coming here. You can learn about the different needs and behaviours of people, and how to deal with everydays problems and turn them into good management for the business.
I have been diving with Rubicon Diving for 9 years, starting with my open water and now am in the midst of studying to become a Divemaster. Three weeks into my training and I am already part of the Rubicon Diving Family.
During week one, I completed my Nitrox Speciality, Rescue Diver course as well as Emergency First Response (EFR) training. Now the hard work both practical and theory has begun for the Divemaster course.
A typical day at Rubicon Diving starts bright and early. Preparation of the boat and equipment precedes two morning dives, either in Playa Blanca or Puerto Del Carmen. A coffee and cake break in between dives comes complete with Roxanne (the dog) trying to convince everyone to feed her. Most afternoons consist of theory and Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) courses.
Every day brings both new challenges and lots of fun. No two days are the same and with a multitude of dive sites and new divers joining us every day, coming to work here isn’t a chore.
