Paul French

Multi Award Winning PADI Course Director, EFR Instructor Trainer, PADI Speciality Instructor and PADI Tec 50 diver.

I have been diving since September 1995........So quite a while!

During that time I have amassed somewhere over 3,750 dives, and I have been exceptionally privileged to have dived and taught around the world, in many awesome locations.

I am a self-confessed liveaboard junkie, and you may enjoy reading my blog on this very subject. I am a passionate underwater photographer, and when recreational diving I always have my camera with me. The underwater photo's and video's on this site are with 1 or two exceptions all mine.

I am exceptionally proud to have been a PADI Pro since 2011, and to have been awarded "Elite Instructor" status yearly since 2015. I really would love to have you join the group of over 400 divers I have helped to encounter, enjoy or improve skills in our amazing underwater world. Since becoming a PADI Course Director, I have been privileged to be able to help shape future dive professionals, and if you would like to Go-Pro or continue that journey, check out our Instructor Development Page

I am a firm believer in continuing your diving education, and I practice what I preach, not just teaching and fun diving, but also learning new dive skills myself. For me I believe this helps me be a better instructor for those that I teach, and a better diver for myself.

So why do I teach people to dive? This started with my daughter Rebecca, and ensuring that she got the best dive education she could, and has followed with my partner (Scuba Jan), and her daughter Cerys.


My real drive is helping people to explore the amazing underwater world that I have been lucky to visit for over 25 years.


Is this just a family thing? No, as a PADI Professional I have been lucky enough to have taken hundreds of people on many individual or multiple scuba adventures, and I look forward to carrying this on with You!


Many of these customers, I am now fortunate enough to call friends.

I hope you can join MY diving family, and take some courses with us, or join us for some UK diving or our foreign trips.

Rest assured, I can spin a great dive yarn too!
