    "I am one of the owners of Master Divers and the General Manager. I am a PADI and SSI Instructor but took a step back from teaching to consentrate on building the dive centre of my dreams. We work hard to ensure that every diver has the best experience possible. I couldn't be prouder of what we have achieved"

    "I've always loved being in the water, but I'm truly in love with being under the water. It's a difficult feeling to put into words, but beneath the surface is definitely my happy place!"

  • Gaz
    Gaz Lyden PADI Course Director

    “Diving has an amazing capacity to keep you engaged, there's always something new to learn or something you can work on perfecting. Whether that's new course, new disciplines or even new conditions. That's what keeps me interested; the infinite capability to grow”

  • Danny
    Danny Head Instructor | PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer

    "Diving to me is an environment that is relaxing and devoid of stress, a great place to rest your mind. The more people I can introduce to this amazing environment, the better I think the world will be."

  • Josh
    Josh PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer

    "To me, diving opens a world of complete freedom. On land you're restricted to two dimensional movement, and are always constrained by terrain, obstacles, and gravity. Those are all stripped away underwater, taking with them any thoughts or problems from the surface."

  • Merty

    "Diving combines three of my loves; the outdoors, animals, and exercise. Most days I still cannot believe I get to do this for a living!"

  • JC
    JC PADI Staff Instructor

    "To me, diving provides the perfect career and lifestyle balance. It helps keep you physically and mentally fit, plus you meet an amazing range of people and have plenty fun along the way. As the old Confucious saying goes 'choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life'. And that's exactly how it feels, diving is always a pleasure, never a chore."

  • Simone

    "From the moment I took my first breath underwater on my DSD, I loved diving. The feeling of freedom underwater and learning more about aquatic life makes me really happy."

  • Harry
    Harry PADI Instructor

    "Being an Instructor is incredibly rewarding, sharing such a spectacular experience is the reason I do what I do. Diving is almost certainly the closest thing to being on another planet, being weightless gliding through the water. You are visiting a new world for the first time and it’s something you’re never going to forget."
