PADI Assistant Instructor
Frances has been a very keen swimmer from a young age which led to her curiosity in trying scuba in the pool at the age of 11. She instantly fell in love with the sensation of breathing underwater and gained her PADI open water certification at the age of 12. Unable to stop ever since, she's dived in Malta, Menorca, Egypt, Turkey and Wales of course! With a passion to learn more and experience the underwater world closer to home, Frances began UK diving in Pembrokeshire completing a range of speciality courses with particular interest in conservation, photography and wreck diving. An experienced PADI professional, Frances has worked for two seasons in Turkey after completing her Divemaster and Assistant Instructor course in 2012. An energetic, understanding and outgoing individual, she is passionate about her diving and enjoys guiding dives and introducing scuba diving to customers and helping beginners gain confidence in the water to enjoy a safe and exciting experience. She states “For me the most rewarding part of being an assistant instructor is helping someone overcome a challenge or fear to achieve their goals, sharing their happiness in success and freedom to explore the beauty of the sea.” Amongst some of my most memorable dives include swimming with seals off Skomer Island in West Wales and diving alongside turtles in the Red Sea, Egypt.
