PADI IDC Staff Instructor
The heart of our operations and responsible for all aspects of our daily business, Neil is in charge of, well, pretty much everything!
After Taking his OW course in Australia and catching the diving bug, Neil arrived at the ‘The Rock’ in 2011 and embarked on the ‘Diving Lifestyle’ Divemaster Internship program. Neil quickly settled into island life and progressed through his training up to instructor with great success and poise.
His dynamic nature and ability to problem solve soon caught the eye of the DM Team and key members of staff. After successful completion of his IDC and MSDT Program, Neil was offered a permanent position on the DM Team.
As a member of the Crystal DM Team Neil gained valuable experience and honed his diving skills. During this time he progressed to “Team Leader”, advising and guiding newer team members into their roles at Crystal. Neil spent the next 2 years at Crystal working solely in an instructional role and was soon to become a senior member of the team.
In 2014, Neil progressed to a Managerial position, taking a back seat from teaching and focusing on the role of Operations Manager.
After work Neil can be found usually in the bar having a Singha beer, talking about his beloved Liverpool Football club or playing with his dogs ‘Happy’ and ‘Biscuit’.
