Instructor/Dive Guide



I dive just about every weekend, and my favourite local dive sites are the exHMAS Hobart and Rapid Bay in South Australia. When I’m not working and I’m diving for fun, I always have an underwater video camera in my hands.

What drew you into the sport of Scuba Diving?

Friends invited me to learn and I was hooked straight away

What is your favourite dive site and why?

The exHMAS Hobart just out from Wirrina Cove in South Australia is the best dive in SA. I have probably done about 500 dives on it over the last 13 years since it was scuttled.

What is the most memorable dive you have done, and why?

Ulong Channel in Palau. I have been to Palau 3 times, and it is one of my top dive sites to dive and film.

What do you love about being a Dive Instructor?

I love taking dives with new divers, showing them why I love to dive.

Where can you see the sport of Scuba Diving heading in the future?

I hope that diving will grow as a sport in South Australia, so that I can show more people the amazing underwater world.
