Meet the Team

Adrew worked with us last year and was going to spend the winter season in Australia but something came up and we asked him to return to the big fish. He was happy to say yes and we have a lot of guests who will be very happy to see him again

Kim is from England and also a former Customer (we keep getting our guests coming back). She rounds up our little team perfectly! Kim is also very engaged in marine protection which makes her a perfect fit for us.

Patch the mascot
Patch, our mascot, is the most adored one here in our shop. He adopted us in 2007 as a puppy and since then he is a big part of our team and everyone loves him. He is in charge to keep an eye at the shop but most of the time he is sleeping, playing, eating bananas or having a "drink" after work. He has his own photo gallery.

Sabine, from Germany, is a qualified Padi Divemaster and as owner of The Dive Centre she runs the office. In her former life she worked in the film industry in Germany and her passion is underwater photography and marine conservation/education. Her life changed in 2003, when she learned to dive in Mexico, while on holiday, where she met her partner, Sascha.

Sascha, also from Germany, has been diving since 1995. As owner he is senior instructor and in charge of the diving & maintenance part of their business. He was a shop designer before becoming an instructor in Mexico. After they lived there for two years they traveled to many countries until they found their home in Rarotonga, Cook Islands. He loves his collection of old glass bottles (all found here in the water).
