Johan De Sadeleir

Johan De Sadeleir has been in the diving business for more than 40 years and is a ANDI and PADI certified instructor. The Subic Bay area in the Philippines offers spectacular recreational and deep diving and Johan provides the full suite of training for beginners and experienced divers alike. Johan (pictured here in grey with Ed Betts of ANDI) was one of the first operators in the area and was on the wrecks the day after the Americans left Subic. This makes him one of the most experienced divers in the area having spent more time on the wrecks than anyone else. During the American occupation of Subic Bay, the wrecks were off limits to recreational diving so there are few who have ever had the opportunity to dive this pristine area. Johan was the first Technical school in Subic Bay and still teaches all classes up to full trimix and wreck level 4. Johan is actively searching for more wrecks and to date, has been able to add new wrecks to his list of dive sites.
Experienced diver or beginner – come explore Subic Bay with Johan he has something more to teach you out of his 40 years of experience.
