Sergio Garcia Palomares, Guide


I was born in Barcelona, and I grew up in Badalona, a town next to the beach. I have always had a blue horizon in my life. I studied Telecommunications and had various types of jobs until I began traveling at the age of 26 to Thailand and later to Australia to learn English. During this time, a new version of myself emerged. The world is so vast that I have a strong desire to explore as much of it as I can.
Following those two years of traveling, I got my open water in Koh Tao. It struck me that it would be wonderful to work in diving and continue my travels (the seed was planted). Thus, I planned a new route with my dog Ganesh. Our journey began in Canada, where we touched all three coasts of the country. From there, we went down the West Coast until we reached Baja California Sur, Mexico, for two years (with no winter at all, maybe that is why I am in Iceland getting the balance of winters to my life.) It was during this time that I became deeply involved in professional diving in Cabo Pulmo. A friend told me that I have a biologist spirit.
Ever since I started working in diving, it doesn't feel like work to me. I feel full of life. It is a pleasure for me to bring you underwater to explore the breathtaking views that a landscape filled with water can offer to our eyes.
