Manon Vanesse, Guide


I was born in Normandy in 1992, where I grew up and studied until the age of 22. After obtaining a degree in book publishing, I decided to travel and work in various places around the world. I worked at a publishing house in Singapore, a library in the Dominican Republic, a resort and a wood factory in New Zealand, and a French school in Switzerland. During my travels, I discovered scuba diving while visiting Bali in 2019. I have always had a deep passion for the sea, so I absolutely loved it! I obtained my open water certification there and further trained in Lake Leman, where I achieved my level 2 certification in 2021. Recently, I completed a 6-month training program in Thailand to become a divemaster. And now, here I am, experiencing a temperature drop of 28°C but gaining 100m of visibility! I look forward to sharing this experience with you.
