Ants Stern, Lead Guide & Instructor

Take a breath or two and look around - A.Stern

Ants Stern

I consider myself as a human from the first moment I saw daylight in a country called Estonia. Some people say it is imaginary, but I know it is not true. You can actually find it from the map. I did my first dives in cold waters of my home country and soon after, decided that I do like it. Worked few
years as a physical therapist with different Estonian national sport teams and top athletes, but one day, I decided to travel around the world with my backpack, where I discovered magical underwater world in tropical waters - Australia, Tahiti, Tonga, Niue, Vanuatu, Indonesia, Thailand, Italy et cetera. These are some countries where I tried to communicate with fishes and some other sealife. One day I realized that I have been in Thailand for about a year and I am a scuba diving instructor and soon after my friend asked me if I would like to come and work in Iceland and now I am here.
This is the story of me - Story of Ants from Estonia.
