About the dive center
The dive centre opened in January 1996, by Ramón Siliceo and Mercè Canyet.
Ramón has a wide reputation in the diving world. He obtained his first diving certification in 1982 within the official Spanish system during that time. At that time he realized how much he enjoyed teaching diving, so he became a qualified instructor in a diving centre in L'Estartit.
After 11 years of experience as a diving instructor, and then 3 years as a manager, he has acquired an impressive amount of knowledge about diving organizations (PADI Instructor, SSI Instructor, FEDAS/CMAS Instructor 3***, DAN Instructor, HSA Instructor, DSAT Instructor, MFA Instructor, SVBI Instructor, etc.). Later on he got the “Instructor Trainer Degree in Recreational Diving (PADI Course Director), Tec Diving (DSAT Instructor Trainer) and also First Aid (EFR Instructor Trainer), and that was when he decided to open the Xaloc Diving Centre in L'Estartit with his wife, Mercè, who is also a qualified diver.
The main goal that Ramón had when he opened the Xaloc Diving Centre, was to create a small but successful business where he could get clients, that eventually become friends.
