Captain Manny Gaedechens
Captain Manny is originally from Chile and has been in the professional marine-related industry for the past 20 years. He started as a commercial diver and then in the recreational diving industry as a dive instructor in the Caribbean, Red Sea, Mediterranean, and Atlantic, to name a few places. Manny first joined us on board the Aqua Cat as Dive Instructor in the early 2000’s and later on moved to the yachting sector where he developed his career to become a Captain. He holds an MCA Master 3000gt Captain License, a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer Instructor, and Chilean Navy Commercial Diver. He speaks Spanish, English and Italian too! Captain Manny loves diving, free diving, horseback riding and a good history book. Last but not least–he loves a good potato salad, at which he has become quite the gourmet. Manny can be found all around to make sure you have the most enjoyable and safe experience on board Cat Ppalu.
