“We had the great pleasure of working with Team Blue Immersion during the filming of a new series about the Blue Hole. We presented them with a series of daunting logistical challenges, and demanded a great deal from them during the course of the shoot. They responded to every situation with faultless professionalism, and it became standard practice for us that any diving problem could be quickly solved by the “Blue Immersion boys”. Their diving skills are second to none, their attitude is outstanding, and they added immensely to the safety and enjoyment of the filming process. I’d use them again without hesitation.”

“I have been to the Red Sea on many occasions over the years. This time it was a bit different. On a recent trip to shoot the first program in a new diving series, the team and I were very pleased to find ourselves working with the guys from Blue Immersion. Aron, Eric and Jonas obviously love what they do and have an impressive track record as diving educators over a large array of Technical Diving disciplines. Over our period with them they made time to support us as Safety Divers, organise and pump gas and run a series of courses for themselves. Pretty impressive and they obviously enjoyed themselves at the same time which is
what it is all about. Thanks Guys! and I look forward to working with you again very soon. Appreciate organising the loan of the pink watch Anne! It saved the day…..!”

Ola Nielsen (Tec Instructor/Team Teaching Internship)
“Tour Egypt 2012 part 2 is going towards it end. Like always in this second home of mine, it has been a great time with loads of new experiences and meetings. Diving has been absolutely worldclass as usual, with dives in mythical Blue Hole, stunning Abu Helal, breath-taking Neptune’s Cave/Canyon and new favourite Caves. Oldtime favourite Gorgonia Garden is difficult to beat.
Teaching and assisting tech classes in two contintents, with students and instructors from all over the planet, all with different background, is of course rewarding and developing for us all being involved. Meeting some very old friends, some somewhat less old and huge bunch of new long time dive buddies has all together made this time a blast together we make magic!
Erik, Aron and Jonas in Team Blue Immersion, thanks for letting me be part of the team and being the best dive companions, mentors and not the least friends ever to walk on Mother Earth. Benjamin Nobel, for never skipping a trimix dive and being the perfect dive buddy, Chris Haslam for making the impossible possible and acting as great motivator for the rest of us, Team Malaysia and Steen Gerner Jensen for being the perfect students for hours and hours of practice. Pascal Bernabe for being a great inspirateur. Also thanks to Soren Wiesauer Dykker-butikken for hiring me, Colona Divers Hurghada for hosting. To Matteo Minellono and IANTD Egypt for the Normoxic Trimix Instructor rating. And a huge bunch of new but long lasting friends, you know who you are!”
