Who am I?
My name is Elisabeth, but commonly known as Lisi. I grew up in a little village in the north of Austria. After graduation at the University of Vienna I couldn’t resist my dream of traveling the world anymore so I decided to take the leap – I left my homeland to explore the world. Five years later I still haven’t stopped living this dream.
I am a professional, experienced and enthusiastic PADI Scuba Diving Instructor working independently in Taganga, Colombia. I assure you to take personal care of you and make sure it will be a safe and memorable experience. I only teach and take out small groups, so I can guarantee you are getting the best service and individual attention.
I have introduced more than 1.000 people to the underwater world all around the globe and taught PADI courses from beginners to professionals. All my divers and students endorse me as a great instructor and appreciate my patient, relaxed and positive attitude . Safety is the most important thing during my lessons but always combined with lots of fun & laughter. Due to my extensive experience in teaching diving to people from a wide range of ages and various nationalities I quickly understand the needs and possibilities for each single student in a group.
Why I love scuba diving?
My very first experience in scuba diving was not a great one. Why? Well, my instructor didn’t explain me much and I just felt rushed to get into the water. I gave it another try and I was lucky, I signed up for my Open Water Diver course with a brilliant instructor in the south of Portugal. Since then I was hooked – I really felt in love with scuba diving.
On my travels around the globe I dove with majestic whales, rays and sharks, some of them so big like busses, but also seen creatures so tiny and colorful that I am over and over amazed by the beauty of the underwater world. I love looking into the eyes of a sea turtle and watching them starring back at me. I love exploring different reefs, seeing corals in all colors, and shapes, and I always feel privileged to visit in this world.
Scuba diving is my passion and I want to share everything I know about it with as many people as possible. It’s relaxing and exciting at the same time and allows you to explore a completely different world. Scuba diving is an incredible sport that connects people from all around the word and allows sharing a unique and magical experience. I love everything about scuba diving, the way of life, the people I meet, the lives I change and this sense of achievement I get from teaching and sharing this passion.
It fills my heart with joy seeing people learning to dive, overcoming their fears and progress through the courses. I want my students become safe and responsible divers who care about the ocean as much as I do.
