Hi, I’m Laura!
I’m your Course Director at Trawangan Dive. When I’m not teaching the new generation of scuba professionals, you can find me on Closed Circuit Rebreather dives exploring deep walls of Lombok, diving in a cave in Mexico, writing articles and blogs to dive magazines or representing sustainable brands and organizing underwater cleanups.
Ocean has been my office for almost a decade. I’ve trained thousands of students, yet I’m still extremely excited every time I take someone underwater. My purpose is to pass this passion and knowledge to you, new SCUBA instructors.
The Ocean Advocate IDC program is designed to show you how to teach SCUBA divers following PADI standards as well as how to use various tools to preserve the natural beauty of our ocean. So join me on a life-changing adventure and enjoy the vibe of the tropical paradise of Gili Trawangan.
Why you should choose Trawangan Dive

Read here what our latest PADI Instructors are saying about the Course
Holly is the best! With Holly and the team’s ( Justin, Ri, Sarah ..) help, I scored 99 for the knowledge exam and five for the skill performance. I was worried about IE at the beginning for 2 reasons; First I don’t speak English well and second I haven’t accumulated enough experience, especially about some diving theory. But Holly was there all the time to make sure I can understand all the questions. Don’t hesitate to come if English is not your first language, because you will get extra help. And you can come early for the diving theory review and fun dive – It’s all free. TDC is a nice place, I strongly recommend this diving school.
Amazing IDC experience with Holly, super professional fun course, great facilities, we were so well prepared for our I. E. The whole thing was a blast. Don’t consider going anywhere else for your IDC. Holly is an awesome teacher.
Holly is the best course director i could imagine! Thank you for everything! 🙂
Holly is the best course director you can have! She is just amazing, well organised and the whole course is structured very well. She is so patient and has answers to all questions you may have. I can highly recommend her course – she will train you in a very good way and prepare you for your instructor exam. Apart from that we also had lots of fun during the IDC with the whole crew!
I researched a lot for other awesome sounding IDC’s but I am completely relieved I went with TDC. Holly has a reputation for being among the best in the world. A reputation she has worked hard for and deserves. Justin, Laura, Marco and Doug completed an amazing team of staff. Thank you!
Huge shout out to Holly, who put so much effort in an IDC course! I can highly recommend to everyone who plans on a dive instructor career to start it with them!
Holly is a lovely person. She always has time to answer all questions. From the first time on even when you haven’t sign in and also to all the little side questions doesn’t belong to the IDC.
Of course I can not compare my Instructor course with other courses (would be a shame if I could), but the patience, effort, time and hard work that Holly, Dan, Rik and Justin put into our group is definitely not average. It’s high above.
They all give more of their time than they would have to just to answer all of our questions or to relearn what we haven’t understood completely.
Already in the first days I could feel the difference and during only two weeks I felt 95% prepared for the IE. And in the end, the IE felt almost too easy, so well were we prepared by this great team. What means we were 150% prepared, whatever we felt by ourself.
The place among the best in the world is definitely hard-earned and absolutely right.
Thanks for all Holly, Dan, Rik and Justin.
