Head of Sea Spirit Diving Resort, PADI IDC Staff Instructor, and one of the main diving center instructors
Cilla Lentz, general manager, PADI IDC Staff Instructor and main instructor at Sea Spirit Diving Resort, started diving in 2010 during a holiday at diver’s paradise Koh Tao, Thailand. After that, she went back to Holland to work in an office, until she decided to change her life. In 2012 she flew back to Koh Tao to become a PADI Divemaster.
During her Divemaster Training she assisted as many courses as possible and gained an abundance of dive experience. She helped instructors and also the students to develop themselves into comfortable divers. She learned a lot about problem-solving during courses and diving.
During her internship at Buddha View Diving Resort, she became passionate about the industry and decided to take the next step to PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor.
After she got her certification, she free-lanced for some of the best diving centres and resorts in Koh Tao: Buddha View Diving Resort and Masterdivers. During this period she saw what a diving resort needs to be excellent: people who are passionate about diving, safety, professionalism and a personal approach to the customers.
In 2013, she moved from Koh Tao to Sicily and implemented her experience with Sea Spirit Diving Resort. In 2014 she increased her experience in several PADI Specialties and got the PADI MSDT certification (Master Scuba Diver Trainer). After that she gained more experience in training on a professional level during Instructor Development Courses and achieved the PADI IDC Staff Instructor certification. Today, she manages Sea Spirit Diving Resort and trains people how to become competent and skilled divers, and trains people who want to take their first step into professional diving.
Cilla speaks Dutch, English and German.
