PADI Divemaster – Toni

Goodbye or Farewell…

Let’s say ‘see you later’ to Toni! Off back to #France for a few months before joining us again to become a PADI Open Water #Scuba #Instructor.

I think it’s safe to say we have him #hooked (pun intended).

He has come a long way from his PADI Open Water #Course (left) to becoming a PADI #Divemaster (right).

Thank you Toni for your hard work and enthusiasm! Looking forward to having you back!

PADI Women’s Dive Day

An amazing day celebrating women in diving!

We had a presentation by Jess about why it’s so important, and talked about some influential women (Gemma Smith, Szilvia Gogh, Dottie Frazier, Sylvia Earle and our very own Kim Timmers)…

… then a cracking dive for the women at a local dive site, Las Eras, followed by a Beach Clean Up, and an evening BBQ! #Fantastic

Kim Timmers – PADI Platinum Course Director

On Women’s Dive Day it’s important to give a nod to those women who make a difference and inspire in the industry.

We would like to give a shout out to our very own Platinum Course Director Kim!

To put that into perspective there are only 11 female PADI Platinum Course Directors in the world! She is also an Elite 300 Instructor and PADI Freediver Instructor and that’s just a little of what she has accomplished.

She not only has helped change the lives of many people through teaching (all of team here included) but her strength and continued motivation help to inspire us all. As a woman she’s a beacon for what you can achieve if you put your mind to it.

Thank you Kim for everything you do. We are lucky to have you.
