We would like to officially introduce our new Dive Centre management couple, Julian Arenas and Alaitz Muro!
Julian and Alaitz come from Spain (and Basque country) respectively, and have been at Papua Paradise since June this year.
Alaitz has been working in the dive industry for five years, in places like Thailand, Solomon islands, Egypt, Philippines and Indonesia. She has had ample experience working on dive liveaboards in the region and loves critter diving, though also happy to just be breathing underwater! She enjoys learning about the behaviour of sea creatures and different species that dwell in Raja Ampat. Apart from diving, Alaitz has a great sense of humour and enjoys designing artwork in her free time.
Julian has worked in the dive industry for at least nine years, mainly in Southeast Asia – Thailand, Malaysia, Solomon islands, Egypt, Philippines and Indonesia – and has been cruise director on a few liveaboard boats in Thailand and Raja Ampat. Julian really enjoys underwater photography and caving, and in addition, he has a knack and huge interest in drawing detailed dive maps with intricate features and would love to produce a comprehensive guide book for Raja Ampat sometime in the future.
We look forward to this couple’s amazing adventures here on Pulau Birie and welcome them with big smiles from the Management and team at Papua Paradise.
