Karim lives to be in the water and to teach our guests all about the amazing underwater world of French Polynesia.
Karim started diving 20 years ago in Marseille, France. In the years since, he has explored other famous French dive spots, such as Guadeloupe in the Caribbean Sea and Mayote in the Indian Ocean. During his 8 years living in Bali, Indonesia, he explored the waters extensively, including in nearby Komodo Island and Rajat Ampat. On board the m/s Paul Gauguin for three years now, Karim has deemed the waters of French Polynesia one of his favorite diving spots in the world because of it's crystalline waters. As much as he loves being in the water, he says his favorite part of his job is to see the guests' gigantic smiles when they come out of the water.
