Since learning to dive in 1994 in Cyprus and achieving his first diving qualification as a NAUI Scuba Diver John has now logged over two thousand dives both in the UK and overseas, during this time he has gained extra skills which have enhanced his diving abilities and enjoyment.
Even before gaining his first PADI professional qualifications in 2005 John showed great delight in helping new divers progress and to achieve their goals, in short he is a true dive professional with a true passion for diving.
John is a PADI Master Instructor, PADI EFR Instructor Trainer, PADI Tec Rec Gas Blender Instructor and a BSAC Dive Leader.
