Jonas Gjesse Jørgensen, Instructor & Guide

Don't chase the dreams of anyone else, chase your own!


I was born in Copenhagen to a very outdoorsy family, a father who was always the adventure seeker just like my mother. From an early age this started reflecting on myself, as travel was highly prioritised, but not the kind of travel where you lie on the beach, we would go hiking in the Himalayas or alps for weeks or go cross country skiing across Norway and Sweden. However we did have one vacation where we’d lie on the beach many years ago but couldn’t stick to not doing anything and went SCUBA diving for the first time, something that planted a seed for my love for the waters which I went on to pursue, and hey! would you look at that, professional diver all of a sudden!
