About me

Martin Splitt diving

Welcome to my dive blog! I’m a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer, dive nerd and I make dive tools, videos and photos.

Becoming a diver

It has always been a dream of mine to go and explore underwater worlds and when the opportunity presented itself, I got my open water diver certification in March 2019 on the Seychelles.

As a next step, I learned how to dive in a dry suit, so I could explore the local lakes and other colder waters.

After trying out a dry suit dive with Robert and Chris from Tauchbasis Zwenkauer See, I took my dry suit course with Florian from TSK in Zurich in July. While I was at it, I also added the Nitrox certification with Roni there.

Then, in 2019, I began diving more actively. I took my advanced open water diver certification in January 2020 and then started diving regularly in cold water afterwards.

On my way to a dry suit dive

  • 2021 I became a PADI Divemaster and began technical diving.
  • 2022 I got my TDI Helitrox certification with Tom Steiner at plongee near Vevey and became a PADI instructor.
  • 2023 I became TDI Intro To Cave certified and became an IANTD Advanced Recreational Trimix CCR plus on the Divesoft Liberty CCR.

I collect dive photos and reports on this website, so have fun exploring with me :)
