OPEN WATER DIVER!
Hi I’m Uriel Navarro, I’m a Scuba Dive Instructor from Mexico. Since my first dive I knew that this the profession for me. After just doing the Discover Scuba, I could not stop diving. It took me a year to get to a professional level, after that I started my own business in Mexico and that provided me with lots of different experiences with so many people from all nationalities and ages. Two years ago I settled in New Zealand and now I’m lucky enough to continue my passion here where the underwater world is still surprising me with different species and its’ amazing variety. I love being able to share my passion with those who want to try scuba diving and help them discover the beauty of the ocean.
