AHA Dive Centre was founded in 1995 with little more than a few dive instructors and big dreams, whilst we have changed and grown over the years we still pride ourselves in personalised dive training regardless of skill level. We pair you with an instructor that is compatible with your personality and learning style, we want you to feel comfortable with your instructor. We wont put you in a class of 12 students and expect you to learn something useful, we prefer small groups of 2-4 people per instructor and also offer private lessons for singles or couples. We believe with this approach our divers are more comfortable and competent in the water resulting in safer and better divers.
MEET THE TEAM
Andre (or A1 on e-mails) is the founder of AHA Dive Centre and has been diving since 1994. In his first two years of diving Andre was hell-bent on becoming the best trainer and making diving his career. This meant that by his first diving anniversary he qualified his first student and by his second diving anniversary he qualified his first Instructor.
Andre has been unstoppable since, always wanting to learn more and experience more. Over the years Andre also has gained experience in open circuit and closed circuit decompression diving.
Favourite Dive Site: Ponta Ledge just off Ponta do Oura/Malongane. A beautiful reef lying at 45m. Serene and untouched
Anna (also known as A2 on e-mails) has been diving for 13 years and have been an instructor for 8 of the 13 years. She is also most likely the most excitable member of the team be it an open water training dive or a Deco50 celebratory dive, talk to her and you'll see.
Fouvorite Dive Site: SS Carnatic in the Red Sea. Ask her about the epic miscommunication in hand signals for a good laugh
Chantal joined the AHA Instructor and Leadership team to give herself a better work life balance (everyone needs to escape from their day job sometimes) and because she loves sharing her knowledge with others.
