Ran & Danielle Mor did an outstanding job of leading, organizing, teaching, & planning our trip during our stay in Bonaire. They took control but were flexible and very easy with accommodating everyone’s needs. They talked to dive staff daily to scout out the best dive sites given the wind and current conditions. They always had water and snacks for everyone (not expected but always appreciated). Ran was an excellent photo instructor, and always available for questions in and out of the water. My skills improved tremendously under his instruction as well as understanding the potential of where they can go. It was wonderful to have Danielle as part of the group as she navigated all of our shore dives, kept us safe and on time, and with her experience was always an excellent resource and help for equipment and dive issues. Ran and Danielle were extremely organized and were always on time. Outstanding group leaders!!

The underwater photography course with Ran and Danielle was amazing. I received personal attention in every area of photography and with diving skills. I would recommend this course to all levels of photographers. I am ready to sign up for the next course today.

I went with a friend to be a dive buddy on a trip to Bonaire. I did not know that I was in for such a wonderful expedition and learning adventure. Ran took this diver with limited photography experience and gave me the tools to show the beautiful world that I love to visit to others. I was amazed that I could bring back photos that were not all green and blurry. If they were, I learned what to do to correct that in the future!! Danielle made sure that we were all safe and taken care of in the diving department, as we were focusing on the macro environment to get the best pictures. The trip was amazing and I look forward to taking my family on the next trip with Ran and Danielle.

I’d been in touch with Ran Mor for over a year as he expertly guided me in putting together my first underwater housing for my DSLR. His advice was spot on- he was thinking way ahead of me and got me the right cables, flash assist, and several other seemingly minor components, which ended up being extremely relevant as I improved. Then he and his delightful, equally talented wife, Danielle, invited my husband and me on a photo dive trip to Bonaire. I had been so frustrated with controlling the flash and other aspects of underwater photography that I immediately accepted the invitation. The week in Bonaire FLEW by. What a special thing to dive with a professional photographer! He would kindly look at our shots and recommend a setting or a flash position. Or a wet lens. He also gave three very helpful lectures on land. At the end of the week, I no longer fight any aspect of my housing, lighting, or camera underwater! And I met a wonderful group of divers who I hope to dive again with someday- with Danielle and Ran Mor leading us!

It was rather by accident that I had my recent encounter with this Aqua Spirit duo. Danielle and Ran Mor are a pair of diving enthusiasts to the core. He – master of underwater photography techniques, and She – master diving instructor. They scout diving locations and tailor absolute dream diving adventures. They stop at nothing to make sure we enjoy our time together as a group. Ran guided us through underwater photography techniques and challenged us at putting these techniques to the test in each of our dives. Danielle went out of her way to assist me getting my Nitrox diver certification, and this was not originally planned. She also helped us to improve on our diving weights requirements. We were a group of strangers on the first day, and left as friends at the end of the week. I absolutely recommend their services. In fact, I already put down my deposit to join them again in the Maldives next year.
