I started Diving in the icy waters of New York. Like many people I instantly got hooked on the feeling of being weightless, underwater yet breathing and seeing a different world. Since those first dives off of New York I have traveled the world in search of adventure and new dive experiences and racked up nearly 5,000 dives from Mexico, Hawaii, Oman, Kuwait, Greece, Florida, Bahamas, Honduras, Norway, Egypt, Ireland, United Arab Emirates and of course Koh Tao, Thailand the beautiful tropical island which my wife and I have decided to settle down in for the last five years. We have found Koh Tao perfectly set up for all manner of diver training from Open Water to Instructor.
"Since my first dive many years ago I always wanted to be one of the "guys" that have the life living on the beach and teaching diving to others. This is why I booked my "ZERO TO HERO" Dive Master package with Nacho of El Garasha International. As an Instructor teaching a DM who is not good with numbers he showed the utmost patience teaching me how to figure out the Dive Master Physics. In the water guiding and doing SCUBA Reviews he shared his years of experience on how to make diving FUN and safe. I would recommenced Nacho for anyone thinking about their Dive Master. I can not wait to work along side Nacho" Mike Thompson, California, USA.
"I loved my Open Water Course with Nacho, Master Instructor #623054, at Sairee Cottage Diving, he made the course fun and I always felt safe underwater seeing all the fish and experiencing the underwater world of Koh Tao." -- Erik Erikson, Stockholm Sweden
"I wanted to go diving because my boyfriend is in love with diving. I really struggled through the first day of my Open Water Diver course, why do you have to take your mask off, but my instructor Nacho, PADI Master Instructor Khidr H. El Garasha, got me through all of the skills that I thought I would never be able to do and now I know I can and can not wait to do my Advanced and Rescue and Dive Master next year when I have the time with Nacho and the great group of guys at Sairee Cottage Diving. I AM A DIVER :))))" -- Emily Jones, London, England
