David P.

bora bora, POLYNESIE FRANCAISE, French Polynesia

Originally from Lyon in France, I left home after studying sports for 2 years in the University in search of adventure.

After a 6 year stint in the French forces my lust for adventure just began really !
I became a first aid instructor, then swimming instructor and finally a PADI Master Scuba Master Trainer with a RYA Yachmaster Offshore certificate.

Over the period of the last 12 years I have taught swimming and scuba diving in the Mediterrannean Sea, Indian Ocean, Thailand, Australia and now Polynesia, where I have learned a lot about marine biology.
It made me who I am now :
A 36 year old dynamic and enthusiastic guide who loves to share his passion of the underwater world.
When I arrived in Bora Bora the beauty of the lagoon absolutely flabbergasted me. It made me want to settle, expand my local knowledge and pass this onto others.
I enjoy to explain all the secrets of the underwater fauna and flora as much as the history of the Polynesian culture and the geography of the Island itself.

As a former military, safety is always my primary concern and I am always near my group to help and adjust the equipment you might not be used to wear.
The key to success is in the detail and that is what I try every day to think about : the details that will make a journey with me an unforgettable experience for you !

It is such a pleasure for me to meet people like you from all over the world and to share my passion with you. I enjoy it so much that my wife and daughter do not believe me when tell them I am going to work when I leave the house! This is the feeling I want to give to you too. I am often told my warmth and passion shine through but for me - I am just being me, treating each person as a person, in the same way that I would want to be treated if it was my holiday excursion.
