I took my open water course in October 2010. I've always had a strong love of water/ocean, the mysteries it holds and the desire to explore. It was pretty clear from the start I was hit by the scuba bug. I would be lying if I said every dive was amazing. In the beginning between learning new gear or being the new diver with a million dive toys hanging off me (clearly over kill in the eyes of seasoned divers). I've had a very rounded diving portfolio since starting diving. I moved towards my Padi Dive Master course within the same year of learning to dive. I couldn't get enough of diving and started to move towards the technical side of diving. Very quickly I found the deeper wrecks held my heart; there was nothing like planning a deep dive, descending the line down to 200ft and seeing the wreck appear in front of you. You are instantly hit by the wrecks history and the fact very few people have explored these depths. I decided to become a PADI instructor for several reasons. There's nothing more rewarding than seeing a student breathing underwater for the first time or overcoming trouble with a certain skill and most importantly sharing the diving passion with others.
