Open Water Scuba Instructor

PADI Assistant Instructor Rebecca Lock









When and where was your first dive ?

Shelly Beach in Sydney 2007. Went out to Australia to visit my brother and needed something to do while he was at work so decided to give scuba diving a go. We saw lots of sting rays and a wobbegong shark. I was hooked from then on.

What made you want to become a professional diver ?

I love diving and enjoy teaching, it seemed like an obvious choice.

Favourite type of diving ?

Reef- love the diversity of marine life and they’re generally warm!

Best Dive ?

A place called Permangil Island in Malaysia. I was part of a team surveying the coral reefs around the area and we were looking for isolated reefs to check. It was a beautiful reef and it’s likely we were the first people to ever dive it. Plus I had a close encounter with a very friendly turtle.

Dream diving destination ?

Galapagos, the more photos and films I see of the diving there the more I want to go – definitely on the bucket list

Favourite piece of dive equipment and why ?

My dive computer Suunto D4i – it makes everything so much simpler and being a bit of a geek I like being able to review my profiles after each dive.

Favourite marine life ?

So hard to choose – it’s all pretty awesome but I definitely have a soft spot for turtles. The seals at the Farne Islands are also right up there.

If you could choose any buddy who would it be ?

Crush (the turtle from Finding Nemo). I reckon he’d be pretty chilled out to dive with

What is your next diving goal ?

Professionally – instructor. I also want to master sidemount diving.

Best water related joke ?

There are two fish in a tank. One turns to the other and says – “Are you sure you know how to drive this thing?”
