Candice Liu

Language: English and Chinese

On her first dive in the Maldives, she experienced the thrill of a close encounter with a shark, and with each successive dive, she found herself ever more drawn to this amazing world, which is only explored by a mere 3% of humans.

Since then, she has been diving in many wonderful places around the world: the Philippines, Thailand, Australia, Fiji, Tahiti, and Palau to name just a few.

And this passion for diving has seen her advance now to the professional ranks. In 2011, she completed her PADI IDC and became an instructor. She isn't the first female instructor, but she would like to be the best one.

She strongly believes that a diving course is not just about getting a certification. Rather, she says each course is a wonderful experience that helps open the door to a new and sublime world.

She would love to be a guide for you and show you how beautiful this underwater world is. With her professional teaching skills, sweet smile and ample patience, you can rest assured that you are in great hands!
