Euro-Divers is celebrating an incredible 50 Years in the Maldives in 2022.

Euro-Divers first opened its doors to divers at Kurumba Maldives in 1972, this was shortly followed by Meeru Island Resort & Spa. Over the years, Euro-Divers has expanded its operation and built a solid reputation and brand name regarding safety standards, working conditions, and service philosophy in the Maldives and now worldwide.

Euro-Divers now operates 11 dive centres in the Maldives, 2 in Egypt, 2 in Mauritius, 2 in Spain, 1 in Oman, 1 in Thailand, and 1 in Japan. Their mission is to provide world-class diving, water sports, and excursions, giving clients access to the best locations in the world in a safe, friendly, and professional manner.

“Diving with friends” and “having fun together” has always been, and will remain, their philosophy. Over the years, Euro-Divers has built a strong community of repeater guests who enjoy a 15% repeater discount.

For the 50th Anniversary, the Euro-Divers team has created an incredible program with ‘special weeks’ in the different Maldives’ islands. Browse their Event Calendar here.

There will also be an online underwater photography competition from 1st March – 31st May 2022. Stay connected with their social media platforms for more details as information is released: on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Twitter.

Published

on

Gemma and Ian chat to Samantha Falcucci. Samantha is a technology professional in New York City, STEM mentor, and ocean and space exploration advocate. After studying Information Systems & Marketing at the University of Texas at Austin, she launched into a business-technology career and has worked at Microsoft for six years guiding enterprise customers through their unique digital transformations. She has fostered a passion for science all her life and is dedicated to hands-on scientific research and communication in both space and ocean related fields.

Samantha earned her Advanced Scuba certification at 17 and is passionate about diving and marine science. She is a citizen scientist volunteer recording microplastics presence at the Jersey Shore for the Plastic Wave Project and is a member of the NYC Sea Gypsies scuba club. In August 2021 she became a trained analog astronaut and helped lead a Mars simulation in the Mojave Desert with an international crew.

She dedicates her passion for science to her late grandfather who was an entomologist and loved launching model rockets together. She strives to set an example as a citizen-scientist while advocating for diverse backgrounds needed in exploration. Her advice to aspiring conservationists is to find unconventional ways to study and care for the ocean regardless of your age or if it is directly related to your job and studies. She looks forward to sharing all of her upcoming space and ocean related experiences on her Instagram blog.
