Lots of things has happened since I wrote in my blog last time. I have opened a new dive business Scuba Haven in Mactan, Cebu, Philippines. Location is conventionally located close to beach between Shangri-La- and Movenpick resorts (former Hilton). Facilities are fully functional what means that courses can be conducted also in swimming pool or you can get help with equipment beside normal dive shop facilities. Best of this place is that its relaxed and spacious without busy dive shop hassling and rush. I have experience of continuous process improvement in international companies and I believe that I can just do things better. Also I want that my business goes back to roots of fun diving and provide customers more great experiences and adventures than just a routine trips in a busy schedule. For me most important things are fun, safety, quality service, reasonable prices and comfort. Customers are in center and they needs to experience something exceptional what they can memorize later in their homes.
Business has been open only 2 weeks but I have already had some old students and new customers.
Congratulations to Jukka for OWD, Karri for AOWD and Cynthia for AOWD. Thank you Troy and Cynthia for a great dives together!

We make dive trips as customer wants and based on their needs. This is one of the variation to take a big banca boat and have a lunch between diving.
