Igor Markin: Dive Resort Manager

Starting from December I am working as a dive resort manager at North Borneo Biostation. We offer both diving and freediving here. This is a remote dive center surrounded by rainforest and deserted beaches with perfect access to Pulau Banggi with its astonishing variety of hard and soft corals and stunning diversity of marine creatures. Here I conduct dive trips, teach diving and freediving courses and you, my friends, are more than welcomed to visit us in our peaceful surroundings. Perfect place for yoga and meditation!

My previous diving experience includes Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Crete and Poland. After familiarizing myself with diving in the cold polish waters, I made divemaster’s on Koh Tao, when took the internships on Boracay, Koh Phangan, and Phu Quock and eventually my first instructor’s job was held on Crete.
