Tibo has always been close to the water, growing up on the French west coast. He started his career as a swimming teacher and then moved on to instructing Scuba. When he wasn’t diving, he would spend the rest of his time in the kitchen and now vice versa! Whenever he can, he would love to bake you something delightful and he will make sure you aren’t left hungry!
You might see him once in a while joining you on dives having fun making bubble rings. Tibo is also a fish geek, if you are not sure what you saw on your dive and would like to know more about it, he will be the guy to ask.
If you overhear Tibo secretly whispering love words on the phone, he isn’t talking to his partner but his three furry babies, he is what you would call a crazy cat lady.
Blue attribute her love of the outdoors to growing up in New Zealand. With a name like Blue, she felt like a life under the water was the perfect place to be! Once she tried scuba diving, she realized just how much beauty that she was missing. When Blue is not busy showing others all of the beauty that under the ocean holds, she likes to do anything and everything that can get her heart racing. Rest days always consist of drawing, painting, or a good book!
