ALBE team

Allow us to introduce our Adriatic Sea diving team

Ing. Zden─Ťk Komenda (born in 1987) and his ALBE team.

  • Zden─Ťk contributed significantly to the outstanding achievements of the Czech startup Kiwi.com over a remarkable 6-year period. His work took him on professional journeys across the globe, where he directed the expansion of Kiwi.com’s partner B2B network.
  • Even the workaholic Zdenek eventually succumbed to “corporate” fatigue, and in 2019, he made a complete shift from the international business scene to something entirely different. He was captivated by the tranquility and silence of the underwater world. Diving.
  • Zden─Ťk reached the Divemaster level within the world’s most prestigious and extensively established diving association, PADI. Together with his brother Jakub, he became the owner of the Dive Center ALBE in Brno, which boasts a 25-year history. They now lead the ALBE team, which is comprised of young and dynamic instructors with a passion for travel and meeting new people.
  • Zden─Ťk has explored premium diving sites in Australia, Costa Rica, Egypt, and Turkey, but his heart remains devoted to Czech quarries and lakes. However, the surroundings of Buqez Resort, the nearby Kornati and Tela┼ícica National Parks, world-famous shipwrecks, schools of fish, and clear Adriatic Sea have become his second home. He was charmed by the ambiance of the Croatian-designed Buqez Resort and is now the proud owner of several villas in the area.
  • That is also why clients of the ALBE team from the Czech Republic choose to complete their basic and advanced diving courses at diving locations around Drage, with accommodation provided at Buqez Resort.
  • Zden─Ťk is currently focused on the digitization and modernization of the diving offerings and the development of Buqez Resort.
  • Apart from Czech and Slovak, you can also communicate with him in English and Russian.
