Mark Soworka is the best

I completed IDC at Bandos Maldives under Mark Soworka’s expert guidance. The content of the course was taught in a manner which was easy to follow and the concepts were well taught by Mark. I would definitely recommend Mark to anyone who is interested in doing IDC. It would without a doubt be an exceptional experience.

Truly amazing

Our Course director Mark has gone an extra mile transforming me from scratch to a professional dive instructor.
His kindness and the positive reinforcements after each task builds our strength and confidence. He truly changed the fear into courage and timidity transformed into confidence.
I still remember the first attempt of confined water presentation which was a complete mess and how i nailed the presentation right after the his encouraging words was one of the highlights of the memorable IDC.
It was simply amazing to have Mark as your mentor.Thank you Mark and thank you Dive Careers.
