Dive Zihua Staff
Maude is the owner of Dive Zihua. She is from Montreal (Canada), has always loved playing in the water but has officially started diving in 2003. From wreck diving in Canadian waters to meeting face to face with hammerhead sharks in the Galapagos Islands, she believes scuba diving to be one of the most rewarding activities you can do. Maude also studied marine biology and has worked with different marine animals, mostly elasmobranchs (aka sharks and rays). She is passionate about conservation, and therefore is involved in different projects. Maude speaks French, English and Spanish (still not perfectly but at a very good level).

He is a little encyclopedia of diving and loves sharing his knowledge. Simeon fell in love with diving right at the beginning and has enjoyed different dive locations all over the United States.
