Project Exploring Soldier

Hi my name is Charel

I’m normally a man of a few words, but when it comes to writing I really enjoy sharing my adventures with those who like a good story, I’m a photographer, videographer and web/blog developer currently in South Africa and always open to new projects.

I used to be a soldier in the South African Military, but left to start working as a Dive Master, that’s the guy that takes you deep in the ocean to look at fish, something like extreme hiking but under water.

We now offer private all-inclusive scuba diving courses in Durban South Africa, for entry level divers looking to gain their first qualification, visit the Scuba diving South Africa page for more info or bookings.


If your interested in traveling or just want to read more about a traveling lifestyle, then give my travel blogs a read as they include advise and travel tips on the destinations I have seen.

My stories involveĀ life on a Kibbutz in Israel, living in a small village in France, being a scuba diving guide in Phi Phi islands Thailand, riding dirt bikes on the Red dunes of Namibia, Scuba diving with sharks in South Africa, rediscovering my roots in The Netherlands and a Road tripping guide for Southern Africa.

There’s still many more to come and I hope you keep following our story as me and my girlfriend are preparing to buy our own sailing boat and set off on a three year sailing journey. We both are scuba divers/ sailors and have been preparing for the last two years for this journey.
