The other half of the new Director team. Unfortunately, due to Co-Vid restrictions, he is currently stuck in Oman but is itching to get out here as soon as possible! A background in the merchant navy and port management, he is also working his way up through the various instructor levels.
Now in his fifth year – Phil was recently been promoted to Operations Manager. Involved in all aspects of the day to day running of the centre from Boat Captain, Instructor, Compressor Man and general handyman. With years of experience guiding on the Zenobia he now aims to get his Technical Instructor certification in 2023 to continue his development. Armed with a subtle and dry sense of humour Phil’s calm approach makes all students feel at ease during training and dives through the wreck – even more impressive considering he does this without drinking any form of caffeine!
