Thomas Jian-Min Gov, Instructor & Guide

“La routourne va vite tourner” Franck Ribéry


I was born in the south west city of France called Toulouse and got hooked by diving as a little kid. Since then, I have never stopped pushing this passion to the best I could... and still haven’t reached the top yet.
After 10 years in the dive industry, first as a CMAS instructor then as a PADI and SDI instructor, I got tired of tropical dives and set up in the beautiful ice Island, best thing I have done! I will be happy to take you on a nice, safe and peaceful tour.
