Thanks again for the nice lessons. I’m glad I had you as an instructor you’re a winner :p


Just a short note to thank you and the rest of the crew on Blue Voyager for an excellent week in the Maldives.ย  A thoroughly enjoyable experience (especially when I remembered my weight belt) that I hope to be able to repeat at some point in the future.


I just wanted to let you know that his party had a realy great time on board of the Asmaa. They realy liked it that Anke spoke Dutch and she took her time to make everything very enjoyable for the clients, compliments. The diving was amazing, the crew and the boat and food was also amazing. 

Cheers guys, keep up the good work.

As a former president of Divingteam Miramar-Friesland I learned to know Anke as a very conscientious student and saw her star rise quickly within the association as she went smoothly through all the ranks from an Open Water Diver up to a full licensed Diving Instructor. Later on, during the years 2010-2011 I underwent Anke’s very thorough and precise training myself becoming a Diving Instructor, when she was my Instructor Trainer.
Besides an unbelievably hardworking and loyal team-member, who set up the full works of modern CMAS training courses within our diving team, I would describe Anke as a very sensitive and sociable person, with an open ear for other people’s needs and an open mind to other persons habits. All in all she is a very pleasent collegue and always in for a good laugh.

Anke is able to enthusiastically convey her many years of experience. Professional!

Very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, sense of humor and always safety first. Anke trained me in 2 years to become a 3* NOB Divemaster. I also did 5 specialties with her. Anke is an excellent dive instructor/instructor trainer. I like to go “head down” with her. Highly recommended!!

I know Anke as an enthusiastic, driven colleague diving instructor.
In a very relaxed way she knows how to impart the necessary skills and knowledge to her students. In addition, her talent for organizing events has provided many with fun diving experiences.
Whether it concerns keeping an overview of annual plans or the individual needs of a student, Anke has an eye for it and knows how to spot and tackle any problems.

A pleasure to work with her, to develop ideas and to push boundaries.

Anke has been a great example and learning model for me in my diving training as an Instructor Trainer and before that as an Instructor. She knows how to transfer the theory and skills with great passion and enthusiasm in the training sessions. She also always sets the bar a little higher, so that I, together with my fellow students, have been trained as a “real” independent divers. Anke does not take enough with just enough, but wants you to actually possess the theory and skills! By raising the bar just a little bit higher, she has done this with every student I knowโ€ฆ This is also the case with the divers she has trained as instructors.

I appreciate Anke’s commitment, time, enthusiasm and a lot of patience with me and my fellow students. I also hope to be able to follow a number of specialties and the instructor training with her, because then I know for myself that I will be well trained and, last but not least, supervised!
