The story of Azure Dive Resort begins in 1998 when out of sheer interest in the diving sport, resort owner Glenn Carballo decided to literally test the waters. He trained with PADI as an Open Water Dive Instructor and eventually earned his certification before working with the Sea Explorers team. He could not have started his career at a better time when the diving industry was about to flourish. In 1999, he became the full time resident dive instructor of DAKAK Park and Beach Resort in Dapitan City. The following year, he returned home to Dumaguete to work at the newly opened Atlantis Dive Resort in Dauin where he stayed on for five years. He was one of the first Filipino dive instructors in the city.
Being part of the dynamic Atlantis team proved to be a life-changing experience for Glenn. He learned the full ropes of operating a dive resort, and forged relationships with international students and colleagues. The experience was not only challenging, but also self-rewarding. It was then that he realized what he truly wanted in his life: to be at the very core of the diving and resort industry. In 2005, he bid farewell to his Atlantis family and began a new venture, Diveworx Enterprises, a full-service dive and travel tours company based in Dumaguete City.
