PADI Course Director

Marcel van den Berg PADI Course Director / EFR Instructor Trainer # 492721

"Let me introduce myself; my name is Marcel van den Berg. I’m originally from the Netherlands and have now been living in Thailand for almost a decade. In 2003, I decided to take a diving course to experience the hype that everyone was talking about. It only took me 20 minutes on my first Open Water dive to realize that you can have a fantastic career in this amazing underwater realm. From that moment on, I actively pursued my career in diving.

I hold a tremendous passion towards diving which I have been able to share with others during my teaching and turning thousands of students into divers. It didn’t take long to decide to advance in my career and I continued my education towards Course Director and Specialty Instructor Trainer. Within the first year I achieved Platinum Status from PADI and kept that until this day. Now I’m able to teach the success I had to new Instructors and I look forward to share my passion and success in Diving with you! Come and join us for your professional diving training at Sairee Cottage Diving and let me teach you an award winning program that far exceeds the minimum standards of the dive industry”

Becoming a Master Scuba Diving Instructor turned my life upside down

I grew up in a little town in the western part of Austria surrounded by mountains and snow. Never did I dream of becoming a Master Scuba Diving Instructor! After completing my law degree and working in that field I needed some time out so I decided to go on a round the world trip […]

How PADI sees the value of Divemasters on Koh Tao

The need to develop PADI Divemaster candidates goes beyond the obvious of offering comprehensive continuing education and having certified assistants or tour/trip leaders. PADI Divemasters are highly valued dive professionals. THERE’S A GROUP OF HEROES WHO MAKE the rest of us look good, and mostly do it quietly and humbly. When divers arrive a bit […]

Why Change from a PADI Divemaster to Dive Instructor?

What deeper skills can you expect to learn when making the leap from PADI Assistant Instructor or Divemaster to Dive Instructor? Nobody can see into the future. If we could, we all would have started diving at 10, worked our way up through the PADI ranks, and settled in a decadent dive resort to dive, […]

PADI MSDT Another Level!

Eco Education on Koh Tao – Taking it to the next level

Marine eco education should be a part of any professional dive training. Before coming to Sairee Cottage Diving, during my PADI Divemaster and IDC Course, I was blown away by the lack of ProjectAWARE promotion in other dive centers. This was not because PADI didn’t promote it, but more due to the amount of working […]

Sawtooth Profiles and Reverse Profiles – Are they that bad?

What are sawtooth profiles? What are the dangers of sawtooth profiles? Why should we not dive sawtooth profiles? For years, the dive community has recommended that you make your first dive of the day your deepest, and make subsequent dives progressively shallower. Similarly, the recommendation has been that on any given dive, you start at […]
