In 1995, he founded his own company, the Tauchsportcenter Adventure Diving in Ueberlingen on Lake Constance. In 2009 he moved to Egypt where he worked as an Instructor and Assistant Manager at SubAqua in Utopia Beach, El Quseir. In 2010, the Manager responsibilities at SubAqua were transferred to him until August 2015, when SubAqua decided to close.

Wössi has a wealth of technical knowledge. He has participated in technology training from all major manufacturers such as Aqualung, Mares, Scubapro, CressiSub, Suunto, Bauer, L & W and many others.

As an Instructor, he continued his dive education. Wössi is authorized to teach according to the standards of SSI, PADI, CMAS, PATD and ProNRC.
