Kerry Place PADI Instructor










When and where was your first dive  ?

Koh Racha Yai, Thailand in 2007

What made you want to become a professional diver ?

I love teaching and want to share my passion for diving with others.

Favourite type of diving ?

wrecks & night diving, but I love exploring anywhere new

Best Dive ?

Thats a really tough one! would probably be either Silfra, between the tectonic plates in Iceland, the Cenotes in Mexico, or the Thistlegorm Wreck in the Red Sea

Dream diving destination ?

Truck Lagoon

Favourite piece of dive equipment and why ?

I love my new Aqualung Blizzard drysuit. It’s so comfortable to dive in, even in winter.

Favourite marine life?

Sharks!! but sea horses are really cool too!

If you could choose any buddy who would it be ?

Daniel Craig!!

What is your next diving goal ?

Some technical diver training is next on the list for me, and a dive trip to South Africa for shark diving and for the sardine run.

Best water related joke ?

why do scuba divers roll backwards off a boat……. Because if they rolled forwards they would still be in the boat!
