The Team

Dave Elcock

He loves diving and teaching diving at all levels, from that first breath underwater in a Discover Scuba session, to teaching Instructors to share their passion and enthusiasm for diving.

A diver for 15 years, Helen has enjoyed lots of family diving holidays and likes working with children. Helen enjoys travelling the world on diving adventures especially Indonesia and Mexico.

Nic Bodnár

Nic Bodnár

PADI Assistant Instructor

After a holiday in Egypt and taking part in a try dive my wife bought me my Open Water course as a Birthday present back in 2009. I fell in love with diving instantly, and under the watchful eye of my fellow instructors I have now progressed to an Assistant Instructor. I plan to complete my IDC (Instructor Development Course) this summer to qualify as an Instructor so that I can pass on my love of diving to students. I currently conduct the Discover Scuba Diving sessions on a Monday night. I find this rewarding when a non-diver take their first breath underwater because I remember moment so well.
