Liam´s story

Liam is our half german – half irish newbie in the team. He caught the diving bug when he did his first try out with Goetz at the young age of 11 and has been diving with us every since.

He might be the youngster of the team, but certainly a real Daivoon Instructor: he not only fits perfectly into the team with a sarcastic sense of humour, but also is willing and evenmore passionate about teaching his divers the little extra to make them independent and responsible divers.

Furthermore he is a living encyclopedia about diving equipment, knowing a lot about different configurations and styles of diving and of course he is always in for a good argument about the “correct“ way to dive (if there is such a thing 😉 ).

As a real Daivooner, diving doesn´t stop for him on the surface – he keeps us busy with new ideas and improvements for the centre and reminds us constantly that the rest of the team is getting old (fashioned).

Marvin´s diary

Marvin – our beloved Scubacat – is the first to arrive at the center every morning and welcomes all the divers with an affectionate meowwww. She ensures that the surroundings of the center and the interior of the same are free of mice and in return we give all the love that we can (and food of course). She also brings in a gecko (alive) from time to time so we are free of spiders and mosquitos as well.

If you ever see her meowing near her food just caress her a little, she just needs love.

Marvin also sometimes writes in her diary to update you all on diving, weather, marine life and her favourite dive centre gossip.

Find her diary on Facebook or Instagram and give her a like!!!

Glyn´s story

Glyn was introduced to the sport by his big brother Andrew when he was just 11 years old. It was a huge adventure for him sharing only one tank, one regulator and no BCD 🙂

Glyn took to diving like a duck to water and over the years Glyn´s interest for the underwater world grew and grew. Glyn not only became a scuba instructor, but he also travelled around the world and  took part in a number of scientific (underwater) expeditions.

With more than 40 years of diving he is now an important and experienced member of the Daivoon family and knows a lot about diving in Lanzarote.

In the centre he spends the days drinking his wet, warm and weak tea and enthusiastically teaching people of all ages to dive.

On top, he has a great knowledge of the island and is happy to share tips for restaurants, walking tours and many other things.

Goetz´s story

From the age of 11, Goetz knew he would have his own dive centre and become a diving instructor one day. After diving all over the world, he decided almost 20 years later that Costa Teguise would be the ideal place for him.

Today he not only owns Daivoon, but he IS Daivoon. He puts his heart and soul into this small, family-style dive centre and with his wicked sense of humour and permanent smile, he always makes sure everyone has fun.

As a diving instructor he sets the rules underwater and ensures the safety of all his guests.  His interest in diving is inexhaustible and he has an infectious enthusiasm for the sport.

Goetz uses his wealth of experience to get the most out of any dive.

Everybody who appreciates the individual touch and a little crazyness too will love diving with Goetz.

Michi´s story

Our instructor Michi had her first diving experiences during a family holiday in Turkey and became addicted to it immediately.

With passion and confidence she became an important part of the Daivoon family. She is now the business brains of Daivoon and ensures the smooth running of the diving centre, which the rest of the team really appreciates!

Being really patient, Michi has the perfect touch with kids, or divers who need a little longer to acclimatize to the underwater environment. She will guide you slowly through the water (although some say that she is too fast 😉 ) and show you all the fascinating creatures we have under the sea.

Even better then her organisation skills are the cakes and biscuits that she brings frequently to the center for the team and our guests (must try).
