He co-ordinates all the dive training and handles all social media at Anti Gravity Divers PADI Dive Resort Koh Lanta. Lastly, he loves teaching oriental girls to dive.

Iris is a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor from Holland. Don't let her young age fool you - Iris is well on her way to climbing the PADI Ladder. This is her first season in Koh Lanta, having finished her Instructor Course in Perhentian Islands. She completed her Divemaster Course in Pulau Wey, and with a fondness for chocolate, if not in the diveshop, she will often be found in Auntie Mays.

With a love of macro-life, you will often find Gus diving off Amantra Resort Housereef, where you can find a lot of unusual nudibranches that are not found elsewhere around Koh Lanta. Afterwards, you will find him learning the Latin Names for the species spotted.
