About the author: Hannah

My father introduced me to diving immediately after my 12th birthday. Family holiday to the Cayman Islands and he needed a buddy. I remind him and my mother of this each time they question my reason for moving across seas, far away our land lock home town.

Dive one of my open water was in 2000 on Bloody Bay Wall, Little Cayman where I was greeted by a variety of colorful tropic fish, rays, eels, reef sharks and turtles. From then on, I holidayed south and on the coast, eager for opportunities to breathe alongside the unique marine ecosystem.

The itch to see what else the ocean had to offer increased proportionally with each dive, and in 2012 I traveled to Koh Tao, Thailand to complete my PADI Divemaster; the first level of professional qualification.

I completed my Open Water Instructor level in Vero Beach, Florida 2012 and began my teaching career in Abu Dabi, UAE. I returned to Davy Jones Locker on Koh Tao in 2013 for my Master Scuba Diver Trainer and have certified over 150 divers.

The enjoy teaching because it gives me the opportunity to introduced a part of ocean like never before seen. The grin, even with residual diving snot, students get after their first experience Scuba diving can be equally exciting as the dive itself.

When I’m not teaching, my diving interest extends to Tech, wreck and cave diving.
