David Johnson

PADI Assistant Instructor

I completed my first scuba dive – the PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience – whilst on holiday in 2004.  I knew then that I wanted to become a "proper" scuba diver. 

 

Eleven years later I turned 40 and decide that it was about time I got on with it!

 

After completing my PADI Open Water course, I went straight on to do the Advanced Open Water course and then as many specialities as I could get to. 

 

On family holidays I would always try to squeeze in a dive or two and have dived in a variety of different environments, from wrecks off of the Canary Islands, to warm prehistoric caves in Florida, to the much colder waters of the Farne Islands (home to a seal colony) and I have even dived in one of the world’s largest aquariums!

After becoming a Master Scuba Diver in 2020, I decided that I wanted to get into diving professionally and I went on to get my Dive Master qualification the following year. 

 

I am now an Assistant Instructor and get a great deal of satisfaction from introducing people to scuba diving and to the fantastic community of divers that permeates every walk of life.

 

I have made many friends through diving and am very proud to dive with Bespoke Scuba, that both my daughters have now dived with.
