First staff employed on Ahe dive resort Papua

Kaleb, Yulian, Michael and Rio

We are very happy to let you all know we have employed four great guys that will make up the Ahe dive resort dive team. They have been trained to the level of advanced diver, got good gear en will receive further training from us in the coming months. It is their goal to become Divemaster and guide visiting Divers to the most wonderful locations around the Harlem Islands.

They like their fathers and many generations before them where bound to become fishermen. They however persisted going into a different route and we are very happy that we can assist them in realising their dream.

It is a great joy to see how quick they are developping and what a sharp eye they have for everything under water. Despite growing up in a marine environment a new world has opened up for them. Before they where only focussing on the sea while (spear) fishing and they knew two types of fish.. eatable and non eatable. Now with training and more information on marine life, behaviour and knowledge about the reef and eco system they are amazed with the beauty and are keen to share it with the rest of the world.

In the next few months the task of Yulian, Michael, Kaleb and Mario will be to explore the vast area for dive sites and marine life. .. these waters are virgin dive grounds and every dive holds a new adventure and findings. Furthermore they will clean up and protect the reefs surrounding Ahe from anything (besides the wrecks) that doesn’t belong there.

On weekly basis we receive a dive report from them and we are looking forward to share their adventures and findings with you.
