Devrim (Dev) was the Co-founder of the New Heaven Dive School all the way back In 1995. The Island was a different place then and Dev and Kong (Dev's Partner and brother-in-law) opened the dive school as Divemaster !!! Later that year Dev became the first Instructor at New Heaven, a role he still takes sometimes although these days most of his time is spent teaching Yoga and Freediving as well as managing the day to day activities of the Dive School, the New Heaven Reef Conservation Program and being a Conservation Diver Instructor
In 2004 Dev opened the New Heaven Yoga school and then in 2006 the Marine Conservation Branch of the dive school with Chad Scott.
As well as taking part in these activities you can also find Dev greeting and meeting guests at the reception at New Heaven Dive School or our sister resort Baan Talay Resort & Yoga.
