Alasdair - started diving in 2014 in Melbourne as a hobby activity, qualifying as a Divemaster in 2015. Have dived in various places in Australia including Melbourne, Sydney, Great Barrier Reef (Port Douglas), Ningaloo Reef (WA), Vanuatu (Port Vila), Palau/Micronesia. I am normally employed in the state public sector.
I qualified as a PADI instructor in November 2016 in Sydney and Master Scuba Diver Trainer in March 2017 and began instructing as a hobby job and great networking activity, way to see the country/world. In 2018, I qualified as an SSI instructor and have now moved into technical (Extended Range) teaching.
I have taught courses in Melbourne from Open Water upwards and can teach up to level of Dive master (entry level professional). I took Long Service Leave from my normal full time employment and relocated to Port Douglas in Winter 2017 to teach in the dry season on a Dive Boat, taking up to 100 people a day out on the Great Barrier Reef, diving on Agincourt and Opal Reef.
I started technical diving in 2016 obtaining TDI technical qualifications and then moved to rebreather diving in early 2018 on the Kiss Classic Explorer. My favourite dives are Walls or Reef diving and my favorite dive site overseas would be Blue Corner, Palau and locally, North Wall Corner on the Lonsdale Wall. I also love seeing the changes to the ex-HMAS Canberra frigate wreck as the kelp grows over the former warship.
Megan - started diving when she was 15 in Melbourne after a trip to the Great Barrier Reef and seeing the potential that diving had to offer. Qualified as a Divemaster in 2015 and took her instructor exams in February, 2016 in Cairns. Megan worked in the retail industry of diving and instructing, also heading to Port Douglas for winter in 2016 and 2017 to work on the Great Barrier Reef. Having had teaching and guiding experience in Melbourne and Port Douglas, she brings a wealth of knowledge to the instructional side of the business. In recent times, Meg has developed a passion for underwater photography and loves using her eye for a shot as a way to spread the message about how good the diving in Melbourne is and uses this as a way to promote ocean conservation. In 2017, Megan commenced with Blue Line Divers to compliment her full time employment in the state public sector. She loves teaching the PADI rescue course as a way to expand the knowledge and skills of divers, and make them the best and safest buddy they can be. Megan's favorite dive site is North Bay, Agincourt reef (Port Douglas) and locally, North Wall Corner gets the vote.
