My name is Marko Tomic and I started scuba diving back in 2003. It all began on the Gold Coast in January 2003. As I was walking through a shopping mall with a friend of mine, I noticed a large banner that said “Discover Scuba Diving”. It caught my eye and within seconds I elbowed my friend and asked him “Hey, do you want to do this?”. He said “Sure!”. This turned out to be a life changing moment for me. I fell in love with diving and I can’t get enough of it. So far, I have dived in Australia (obviously), Thailand and Micronesia.
I am insured PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) in teaching status.
Some quick facts about me:
Favourite dive site: Blue Corner, Palau. Also, the good old Fish Rock Cave is right up there!
Favourite sea life I dived with: Great white sharks around Neptune Islands in South Australia.
Favourite course to teach: PADI Open water diver. I enjoy introducing new divers to underwater magic.
Favourite course I’ve done: Underwater digital photography. I love taking underwater pictures.
