Dreamers Dive Academy Timor

Introducing Dreamers Dive Academy Timor 


Let’s breakdown this Dreamers Dive Academy Timor name shall we! Dreamers” is a concept created by Kate Barker and Ivan S. Loria Shelley. It came about during an inspirational walk through a canadian forest on a crisp, cold but sunny day. It is the representation of them as a joint entity. Furthermore, they realised their past experience, particular skills sets and complementary teamwork could lead to something greater. To give something back to the industry they love and take a “leap of faith” by stepping off regular employment and begin this dream.

Many things were discussed and potential for many roads became plausible. Therefore, they were still searching for the right place, the right time and the right feeling.

Timor Leste;

In pursue for their love for Technical diving they found a small opportunity to start something of their own. Hence they began investing in SDI/TDI materials and promoting the various courses they could teach. In the beginning they worked as instructors and guides too.

Eventually, it was obvious they needed more freedom to focus on their own philosophy. Thus Dreamers Dive Academy Timor was created.
