Miguel:In September 2016, I joined the Native Spirit Scuba team. I feel eager to learn to scuba dive and learn all the other watersports skills like snorkeling, Hobie cat sailing, boat driving etc. I’m originally from Carriacou, Grenada’s sister isle. I lived close to ‘Paradise Beach’ where I learned to swim and also enjoyed going fishing. I am a very kind person, love meeting people and love to interact with others.
Mikhail:I’m a part time worker at Native Spirit Scuba, working there mainly on weekends. I love driving the dive boats and also guide the snorkeling trips.
Thayne Mitchell:I started as a part time worker at Native Spirit Scuba, having helped out mainly on week-ends and during school holidays. Since October 2012 have become a full time worker at the company, currently holding the status of ‘Dive Master’, DM # 371411. I love the beach and also what I do: sailing, snorkeling, scuba diving and driving boats. I'm a very warm hearted person, kind to others and make them feel welcome. I'm also a watersports instructor and enjoy teaching people. I love meeting new people and I'm always happy to see repeaters. I look forward to holding hands of the frighten ones and like to see them leaving our dive center with a joyful smile!
Rahel:Hi, i'm Adrian's wife Rahel, the dive center's Office Manager. I’m probably the first person you get in touch with either through e-mail or walking into our dive center looking to get information about our services offered... Since i was small, i loved being in the water. I actually learned to swim in the Caribbean Sea while on holiday with my parents, when i was 5 years old. I have always enjoyed snorkeling and Adrian has introduced me to Scuba Diving. I'm originally from Switzerland and my native language is German. I can also speak a little French, and after having lived in Grenada for many years (since March 1996 !), have adopted quite a lot of 'Grenadian' English.
I love meeting people and have been involved in the Tourism industry ever since i moved to Grenada. I gained a lot of valuable experience when i worked as a representative for German and Swiss Tour Operators and as a tour guide, at Sunsation Tours. Should you need any advice about what else there is to do and see in Grenada, besides diving and watersports, i will be more than happy to assist you. Since 2000, Adrian and i are the proud parents of identical twin boys, who are already like two fish in the sea, and will probably soon follow in daddy's footsteps.
Dexroy Mc Pherson:In march 2010 I joined the Native Spirit Scuba "family" as a boat driver and have since gained a lot of knowledge about boat handling/repairing. I improved my watersports skills, learnt to scuba dive and moved all the way up to the level of Dive Master, DM # 371412.
I love to interact with people from all over the world and making sure they are having a good time!
"Juliette" and "Schatzi" are both Starmas built 290 Tarpon. We recently upgraded and replaced our 2 stroke engines on both boats with 4-stroke Yamaha engines ( 2 x 250 HP ) on each boat. These engines are more economic and environmentally friendly.
They can both accommodate 16 divers or 22 snorkelers each.
For your well-being on board, both boats offer the luxury of a fresh water shower and a Marine Head ( toilet).
