A bit about me – Christine Loew

I came to Playa del Carmen in December 2004 as a PADI MSDT. Originally I learnt diving in the lakes of Bavaria and all training until instructor was done while I still was working in my “normal” office job. I have a degree in business administration, a qualification to train trainees on the job and another degree as a foreign language assistant/ translator. The desire for change and get away and also to exercise myself had me leave Germany in 2001.

Since my arrival here in Playa del Carmen I have acquired a profound knowledge about the area while ocean, cavern and cave diving. I have a personal policy of continuing my education and furthering my skills regularly, this the same in diving or non-diving activities.

My current instructor qualifications

(as per April 2020; active, renewed teaching status)

  • Razor Basic Cave Sidemount Instructor No. 10
  • TDI Instructor No 14584
  • SDI Instructor No 14584
  • First Response Training International Instructor Nr. 14584
  • CMAS/FMAS Höhlentauchlehrer **

I have more then approx. 6000 dives all over the world in various conditions; thereof now more than 1500+ full cave dives and 2000+ for guided cavern tours.

I am native German speaker, but equally can teach courses in English and Spanish. With preparation, I can also give simple diving briefings in French and Italian, but my passive language skills in these two languages ​​are still greater and I understand a lot of my customers (especially diving-specific).
