Resident PADI Course Director Richard Swann with newly certified AWARE Shark Conservation Instructors Lynnette and Sam

For the love of sharks!

Before setting off into the wild blue yonder as professional scuba divers, new PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors Lynnette and Sam got a parting gift from Richard.

Our resident PADI Course Director Richard Swann donated, for free as in gratis, his time so that the 2 young ladies could leave Downbelow with another valuable qualification under their weight-belt.

Richard’s passion for sharks is no secret, so in the name of that passion, for shark awareness and conservation, he qualified Lynnette and Sam as AWARE Shark Conservation Instructors.

Their only obligation; to go forth and spread the word on the danger faced by these awesome animals and what we as shark-loving divers can do to save them.
