Chris Southgate

PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor

FROM THE BEGINNING

Hi, I'm Chris, I've been diving since 2015 and became an Instructor in 2019. I learnt in landlocked Birmingham and decided to move to Dorset a year later to take advantage of the diving it has to offer.


Most of my diving has been in freshwater quarries - Vobster Quay, The National Diving & Activity Centre, Dosthill & Stoney Cove but I love boat and shore diving and have gone on a few holidays too.


I love wreck diving and getting into small spaces to find something exciting. I love Octopus and even have a huge one tattooed on my leg!


I work at the RNLI and am passionate about promoting and encouraging people to stay safe in the water. When I'm not working or diving I enjoy exercising my other love in life - Music! I perform all over the UK in a few different bands, the main one being 'The Birmingham Blues Brothers.'

My Fav dive sites and bucket list


I've dive in Egypt (Marsa Alam and Wrecks & Reefs Liveaboard) & Croatia.


My favourite dives are:

  • The Mangroves Reef in Marsa Alam
  • Shallow Reefs
  • Night Dives

My Bucket List is:

  • The Galapagoes - to see the Marine Iguanas
  • The Cenotes in Mexico
