THE BDC STORY
Gadi loved scuba diving from the moment he first walked into the Red Sea. He became a Scuba Instructor, and years later, his three daughters also learned to scuba dive. They all inherited his passion for the underwater world and enjoyed diving in the Indian, Pacific, and Atlantic Oceans. Then one year, he accompanied his youngest daughter and her friends on a scuba diving trip to Bocas del Toro.
The first thing Gadi loved about the archipelago was the Bocas vibe. After a lifetime of working long, hard hours in a fast-paced, challenging business, he’d found a place where he could feel at peace both below and above the water.
During the following years, he and his family returned often to this charming part of the Caribbean. They loved Bocas with its easy logistics, simple access, tranquil weather, and unique culture.
Gadi decided to help build the Bocas Dive Center into a world-class 5 Star Professional Dive Academy. He spearheaded renovations, brought in top instructors from around the globe, and bought new equipment. He built specially-designed boats for the distinct conditions of the Bocas del Toro archipelago. Then he built a state-of-the-art boutique hotel to cater to divers so that they could be steps from their equipment, the dive school, and the Caribbean.
Gadi supervises daily operations to ensure high quality service in all areas. He loves to welcome guests personally, so please make sure to say hello when you come dive with us.
