Cathy

I’m originally from Cornwall, England but I have been travelling the world for 16 years working as a Dive Instructor, Photographer and Videographer.
The ocean has always been my passion, I can’t imagine my life away from it. I started diving in Australia in 2001 and it changed my life! I love my job because I get to introduce other people to the underwater world for the very first time!!
It is my mission to encourage the world to appreciate the ocean and learn how to protect it. Here at 12 Dive we have started visiting the schools and teaching the young generations about the importance of the ocean to the survival of our planet, this is something I am very proud to be involved in, hopefully we can make a difference!

Tobi

Tobi

I have experience as a PADI Divemaster since 2013.
Since I was a kid I knew that my life will be related to the Ocean, I grew up in Marl, Germany and when I became 16, me and my family moved to Boa Vista, Cape Verde, where I had the opportunity to start my professional dive carrier.
I met Mark in Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt, where he thought me my Open Water Diver course and my Advanced course. Since then we kept in contact. Last year at the boot in Düsseldorf, Germany, we met again and we talked about starting to work with 12Dive on March 2016 and here I am.
I´m proud to be part of the team. In May 2016 I did my Instructor Course here with 12dive and now I am looking forward for a great time here in Tenerife with 12dive.
I love the diving life.
