" Wisse was my diving instructor at Rising Sun on Zanzibar, Tanzania, and allowed me to live my lifelong childhood dream of scuba diving. And I could not have wished for a better instructor! Wisse is extremely professional and excellent at explaining all the necessary procedures when diving – which is very comforting when you for the first time have to breathe with 18 meters of Indian Ocean above your head! I felt in good hands all the way through my Open Water Course, and everything was explained and showed in an easily comprehensible manner by Wisse. At the same time Wisse a regular good guy; fun and friendly, and we all had lots of laughs and a great time all the way through.
Diving among lion fish, clown fish, moray eels etc. etc. is an indescribable experience, that for me even far exceeded my very, very high expectations. I cannot recommend this experience enough; try it at the first possible moment – and if possible with Wisse as your instructor!"
" I have had the pleasure to dive with Wisse on two different dive trips over the past year, one in the Dominican Republic and one in St Maarten. In March of 2014, I first met Wisse at Coral Point Dive Shop in Bayahibe where he was doing his IDC training and I a specialty course and some fun dives. We connected again in December of 2014 when I was on a holiday dive trip to Sint Maarten and he was working as a dive instructor and dive guide with Dive Safaris. During this trip, he was my dive guide for quite a few of the dives I did, and I enjoyed having him as my guide. Wisse is a "people person" and went out of his way to interact with and make all divers on our dive boat feel welcome and safe. He is a conscientious dive guide and pays attention to his customers throughout the dive....checking frequently for safety items such as air consumption and if everyone is feeling ok. He is also great at pointing our ocean critters to the dive group. He is helpful on the boat both before and after dives as well...ensuring everyone has all their gear and everything is working correctly, helping divers on and off the boat, chatting to make nervous divers feel at ease, and so on.
Diving is Wisse's passion, and I look forward to the next time I will have the opportunity to dive together with him again! "
"It was to my last adventure into St-Maarten that I had the great pleasure of meeting Wisse. And, as a fish in the sea Wisse made me feel very at ease and very safe discovering a whole new world in the beautiful water's of that paradise! My experience was fabulous because of his professionalism and because of his friendlyness. I would recommand a dive with Wisse to anyone who wants a safe and memorable experience. Thank you Wisse and may many other's have the chance to live this magical experience!"
"In December 2016 my daughter Ellen and I undertook our PADI Open Water Course At the Rising Sun Diving Center in Zanzibar and Wisse was our instructor. Over the three days of theoretical and practical training Wisse was not only an excellent instructor who was able to impart to us all of the relevant knowledge required to pass the course but he was also great fun and a laugh to be with. Both my daughter and I really enjoyed our time spent with Wisse and the last two open water dives we undertook were the highlight with the array of colour in the coral and fishes an utter delight to behold. Wisse was an outstanding instructor and we both hope to have the opportunity to dive with him in the future."
"We met Wisse at Rising Sun Dive Center in Zanzibar. We came with a group of 9 experienced divers, we had 10 dives over 5 days up to a depth of 39 meter and the 4 non divers did a exploration dive. Wisse's approach was very professional and welcoming, his attention to detail and safety where key points for our operation for a successful dive safari. Thank you Wisse, we will definitely dive together again somewhere around the globe."
