Mgr. Jakub Šimánek

He has been diving literally since he was a child. He was introduced to diving by his father, who has been diving himself since 1972. He made his first SCUBA dive when he was 10 years old. At the age of 18, he received Divemaster certification and for several years actively participated in the training of beginners. After that, he became an IANTD instructor himself.

He studied pedagogy at Charles University with an approbation in biology / physical education, which is very beneficial for his current career.

Jakub likes underwater life the most for diving, but also diving in unusual locations. Among his most interesting dives are the discovery of a flooded Jewish cemetery, or diving in the world's deepest cave - the Hranice Abyss.

Jakub is a popularizer and pioneer of diving with a bailout rebreather. He is currently working to establish standards and procedures for diving with bailout rebreathers.
