Nelson Pereira

Company Director



I been passionate about diving since the first time I put my head under the water wearing just a mask on a beautiful beach back home in Brazil. This was 26 years ago since then I went from free dive/ spearfishing to SCUBA and training. I have been working in this industry for the last 20 years in 3 different countries and in every arm of this business. Love the sea and its creatures, love to educate and show people the rest of this planet.

What drew you into the sport of Scuba Diving?

Mostly the love and interest for the alien life from the ocean.

What is your favourite dive site and why?

The dive trail at Rockingham WA. You never know what you going to find.

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

Site of Pedras secas Ilha do Arvored Brazil. Insane amount and variety of fish, and their size… amazing…..

What do you love about being a Dive Instructor?

Besides being able to work with what I love, the face of a new diver interacting with fish for the first time… that’s what really gets me.

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

I believe in the future it will be even easier for people to dive, it will be less about the hero diver and more about the environment friendly diver.
