Manuel Bustelo

PADI Open Water Instructor


A passionate adventurer & entrepreneur committed to sustainable living, Manuel Bustelo has witnessed sunsets at 7000 metres and scuba dived all major coral systems in the world. An avid skier, mountain biker and diver, it is through these three passions that Bustelo understands the importance of preserving Earth’s fragile biodiversity.

Bustelo believes that in today’s world, where social media allows us to see farther than our eyes can see, the journey becomes more important than the arrival. Through adventures and expeditions, sharing our world wonders allows us to discover, visit, care and preserve the beautiful world in which we live.

As a PADI Open Water Instructor, Project Aware aficionado and Aqualung Ambassador, Bustelo explores the world under the sea for one purpose: to discover an environment so full of life, yet so fragile and endangered. As he says: “With knowing comes caring, with caring comes change.”
