Well Done – PADI Master Scuba Divers


Reefers and Wreckers have 3 new PADI Master Scuba Divers.

A huge congratulations to Dave, Agatha and Lisa who have just become PADI Master Scuba Divers. Over recent months the trio have completed their Open water, Advanced Open Water, Rescue and EFR along with 5 speciality courses. They have learnt how to successfully navigate a wreck, deploy a delayed surface marker buoy, Drift dive, extend their no stop time by using Enriched air, Deep dive and how to provide Oxygen to a person having difficulty breathing.

Fewer than two percent of divers ever achieve this rating. When you flash your Master Scuba Diver card, people know that you’ve spent time underwater in a variety of environments and had your share of dive adventures.


Dave and Agatha Groombridge who are Father and Daughter completed their final speciality in the Red Sea with us  a couple of weeks ago.

Dave Groombridge–

I am living proof that you can teach an old dog a new trick. My teenage daughter and I took the plunge and our first breaths under water over two years ago in a discover scuba session at our local swimming pool. Since that day and immersed in constant support, encouragement and friendship from our dive buddies at Reefers and Wreckers we progressed through open water, advanced, rescue and a selection of speciality courses before attaining Master Scuba Diver together.

We have dived with the seals in the North East of England, had close encounters with Hammerhead sharks and dived on magnificent wrecks in the Red Sea. It has been challenging at times but always exhilarating and hugely rewarding. To do all this as a father and daughter team makes it just a little special and we are looking forward to our next adventure in the Maldives and perhaps progressing further with our         P.A.D.I qualifications.


Agatha Groombridge–

Becoming a master scuba diver was a huge milestone for me, within two years of qualifying as an open water student I’ve had some of the best experiences of my life and becoming an MSD just topped it off!


Lisa Dickinson–

I started diving with Reefers and Wreckers in June 2014, I had done a try dive in Turkey and loved it!! After completing my Open water I went on a trip to the Farne Islands, my first ever time in the sea!! I was amazed at the life we saw in the English sea! Not only does the sea life amaze me but the feeling of being in another world with no worries of the real life is great/I carried on completing specialities and before I knew it I was completing my 50th dive in the Red Sea surrounded by Hammer Head sharks, I had my 5 specialities and was due to complete my Rescue course the weekend after. I reached Master SCUBA Diver before I realised it with the help of everyone at Reefers and Wreckers who make it a fun and exciting sport to take part in.
