PADI Divemaster

FROM THE BEGINNING

Hi, I'm Leon. The owner and one of the PADI IDC Staff Instructors here at Coast2Coast. I started my diving career with a try dive from a boat in Marmaris, Turkey. It was one of the scariest and most liberating experiences of my life. Needless to say, I instantly got the bug for diving and signed up for a PADI Open Water Course upon my return from holiday in 2011.


Since then, I've spent lots of time diving the wrecks and bays of the Dorset coastline and been fortunate enough to travel to places like the Maldives, Egypt, Florida Keys and a few places around the Canary Islands. 


I have reached the dizzying heights of a PADI IDC Staff Instructor in 2016 and can teach anything from PADI Discover Scuba Diving (My favorite!) all the way through to our professional level training such as PADI Divemaster and Assistant Instructor.

A NEW EXPERIENCE

In 2016, I took it upon myself to start a little dive school called Coast2Coast Scuba Diving. Little did I know that this little dive school could be such an awesome success. 3 Years later, I find myself surrounded by a fantastic team of 13 PADI Professionals and Crew,  dozens of the finest divers in Dorset and tons of new friends. 


Over the last few months, I've stepped it up a notch again and gone and bought us a PADI Dive Centre. (Eeeek!) Things are going great and I'm looking forward to plenty more dive seasons and helping loads more divers pursue their dreams of exploring the underwater world.


See you all in the water very soon!
