Chika and Matthias are enthusiastic divers with long experience in the Maldives from north to south, including Haa Alifu, Raa, Baa, Male, Ari and Gaafu Alifu Atolls.
Chika’s diving career in the Maldives started with Euro-Divers on Club Med Faru in 1995, before the first major coral bleaching hit the Maldives. Witnessing the daily process of coral beaching made her decide to keep observing the recovery and regrowth of the reef.
Now, she is one of the longest-working diving instructors in the Maldives.
The sea of the Maldives was also the first place for Matthias to start diving in 1994, where he returned in 2006 to join Four Seasons Resorts. He had been managing dive centres in Egypt, the Caribbean, and Indonesia before moving to the Maldives, where he met Chika, and they’ve been travelling, diving and managing diving centres together since.
Chika & Matthias
Fascinated by travelling and diving in different areas of the planet, Chika and Matthias have managed dive centres in the Seychelles and Oman, but the charm of the Maldives never keeps them from returning.
Now, they re-join Euro-Divers in Meeru Maldives and explore new Thilas and reefs to enhance your diving experience to be more colourful and enjoyable.
“Diving with Friends” matches the beliefs of Chika & Matthias exactly. You would also enjoy their company on the boat, discussing various diving destinations, aquatic life, and much more.
