The Team

Laura Kazimierska (Kazi)

They say good things come in small packages and they are not wrong with Sany. Our beautiful Musang can teach in both English and French.



Nobody really knows where he is really from but we think he is Mexican?! Dani is a man of many talents teaching both recreational and technical diving.



Chelsey is our american woman! She has a passion to keep our oceans clean so she is always on the hunt for trash! When she is not diving you’ll find here watching some birds.

Happy Divemasters

I did my divemaster course at Trawangan Dive and it was awesome. From the moment I got there, I was taken up in the TDC family, which is about so much more than diving. As a divemaster trainee I was given a role of responsibility with real customers, as well as one on one guidance from my mentor Ash (and all the other wonderful instructors). It was so refreshing to be working with absolute legends every day. TDC have nailed the balance between being a serious dive centre, where being the best dive master is the only option, and a really fun and upbeat place to make new friends and memories. Thanks again to all of you – I miss you guys and the great times we had above and below the water!
Isabel Hoffmann

I did my open water through to my Divemaster with a couple of specialties in between at Trawangan Dive with no complaints whatsoever. All of the instructors are second to none at their job, they’re all amazing at what they do and were always willing to give out extra help when it was needed even off the clock. The atmosphere at the shop was always pumping and would be hard to beat being an extremely social and busy dive centre, easily one of the best on the island!
