Simon Lorenz

Simon is an award winning photographer, PADI instructor and TDI tech diver. He is the founder of Insider Divers and the main group leader on our trips. Having dived all over the world he often felt unsatisfied by the dive operations, by the background knowledge of the guides and by the inflexibility of the itineraries.  This inspired him to create Insider Divers, where groups of fun international divers get the best possible itinerary.
