My name is Marc Lapointe and I am iFeel Travel.
I was born and raised in Montreal, QC, CA. I discovered my passion for diving when I went to Club Med in 1991, as a reward for graduating high school. I continued my recreational training and became a professional PADI Divemaster in 1994. In 2005, I refreshed my Divemaster course in Utila, Bay Islands, Honduras. It took me 11 years to realize and plan for a change of life and in 2006, I decided to share my passion with others around the world and became a Scuba Diving Instructor.
It’s in Utila, in 2014, that I met my soulmate Melanie. I was one of her instructors when she completed her PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor course. Since then, we have worked in some of the most beautiful places on earth.
I’m a PADI Staff Instructor as well as a Specialty Instructor in:
– Enriched Air/ Nitrox – Deep Diving – Underwater Navigation
– Digital underwater photography – Gas blender – Sidemount
– Wreck – Peek Performance Buoyancy – Fish ID
– Equipment Specialist – Emergency Oxygen Provider
I’ve certified several hundred recreational divers, trained many professional divers and participated in training for the PADI Instructor development course. I’m proud to say that I have accumulated more than 3500 successful dives to this day.
I do spend quite a bit of time underwater is an understatement. After sharing my passion for diving, I also devote my time to ensure the next generations of wildlife and fauna can thrive. At times you will find me volunteering on different ecological projects on Utila and also hunting the Lionfish. This invasive species is destroying the reefs. In some areas they have been responsible for a 90% decrease in reef and fish population.
We are multilingual French/English/German/Spanish and we continue to travel the world, now better equipped to share our passion for the world with VR cameras 🙂
Now, it’s time for me to virtually show you what I FEEL TRAVEL is all about… and share our passion with everyone!!
So, come join us for an unforgettable experience with I FEEL TRAVEL
