Instructor and guide





Born in Brazil, since very young I started to practice sports and very soon became passionate about outdoor activities and travels. My master in anthropology made me even more eager to travel and explore different cultures and places. I first discovered the world of scuba diving in 2011. I was charmed by the amazing underwater scenery as soon as I began my first diving course in Rio de Janeiro. An unbelievable variety of colorful fish and the sense of feeling weightless underwater ensured that this was only the beginning of a long romance. In 2015 I decided to turn diving from a hobby into a profession and I did my DM Trainee with Azul Diving. After that, I kept acquiring experience and became a OW Instructor in 2017. This is my fourth season on this amazing island and one more year of lots of dives, friends, and adventures!

SSI Divemaster

Ewa Janowska

SSI DiveMaster


I have graduated in cognitive science and have been developing a career in advertising and digital marketing until something has changed while immersing to the blue for the first time. I became passionate about diving and a dive professional all the way with Azul Diving Center. Starting with a life-changing adventure Zero Gravity Experience in 2015 and continuing by becoming a Dive Master in 2017, thus changing the desk and laptop to wetsuit and tank! From Poland where I was born, I brought the passion for yoga, running and traveling which goes perfectly well with diving.

Divemaster Trainee

Rémi Andris


Born in France in 1989, having a passion for travel I hit the road as soon as graduating from University. I spent 3 years traveling through Asia, Oceania and the Middle East where I started diving in the Red Sea at the end of 2016. It was there that I discovered my love for diving and started to think to pursue it as a career instead of sitting behind a desk doing marketing and the other things I studied for.

So here I am in Madeira to become a professional diver!

I also work as a whale- watching guide in Iceland when I’m not underwater.  I love traveling and living abroad, sports, photography and, of course, nature.

Divemaster Trainee

Louise Currie


Born in Belgium, I grew up on the west coast of the United States and from an early age began to develop a love for the ocean. I spent hours combing the beaches for sand dollars, before step-by-step beginning to adventure into the water, suddenly finding myself swimming among moon jellyfish or in the middle of giant kelp, spying on the Dungeness crabs. While studying marine biology in Hawaii, I began to further explore the underwater world through freediving and took my first SCUBA course. Now, it is with great joy and determination that I prepare to continue following this passion in Madeira!
