Mathijs Carmen

Marine Biologist

NED – ENG – FRA – GER

Ever since I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by life beneath the ocean surface. As a kid I collected shark teeth and did numerous presentations on these magnificent animals. This early passion resulted in a masters degree in Marine Biodiversity and Conservation in 2016 with a thesis on bottlenose dolphin acoustics and foraging behaviour. I started diving in 2014 as part of my marine biology studies and I’ve been hooked ever since. My passion for diving and marine biology already took me to some interesting places, like the Caribbean and the Philippines, and I’m happy that Madeira is the next stop in my diving adventures.

Martin Debatis

Commercial diver

NED – ENG – FRA

I am born in 1993, I have always been obsessed with the underwater world and discovered diving at the age of 7 thanks to a documentary from Cousteau. But I had to wait until my 8 year old birthday to be allowed to start diving lessons. I never stopped since then. Growing up I wanted to become a marine biologist or a commercial diver which I became in 2016. I dove mostly in Egypte, Belgium and south of France in a lot of different environments.

Nicolas Jadot

Commercial Diver

ENG – FRA

I am a twenty-nine years old Belgian who has been always attracted by the sea life. As far as I remember, I always wanted to live or work close to the sea. In 2015, I was in holidays in Israel and for the very first time, I have tried diving into the red sea. It was like an explosion of new feelings. Hearing only your breath and the noise of water around you linked to the weightlessness sensation that an astronaut might feel was a wonderful experience. It was like a click in my mind and after working 1 year within big pharmaceutical industries as engineer, I decided to give another direction to my life and go deeper inside diving. In 2016, I became a commercial diver.

Today, I want to experience new adventure in scuba diving and I am happy to start it at Azul Diving Center Madeira.
