My name is Stevie but I prefer Scuba. I am from Co.Cork in Ireland. I am a water fanatic below and above. I started free diving intensely at 12, became an open water diver at 15 and became a divemaster at 18 years old, after completing a 4 month internship.
I have done somewhere in the region of 2500 to 3000 dives, I have no exact no number for that, its in that region. I did my PADI Divemaster in the Canary Islands when I was 18, but then did a full time 9 month internship in Co.Kerry Ireland (including re-doing the divemaster course because I wanted to do it in cold conditions as well as hot). Furthermore the 9 months in Ireland, at the age of 22, I qualified as a PADI instructor and boat captain. I have worked in West Ireland, English channel, Canary islands, on board Starclipper in west Indies, St Martin and of course Cyprus.
Favourite fish is the tiger shark because I want to be one in my next life! I can’t wait to come back to Latchi Dive Centre and Latchi Watersports for another exciting season!
