Richard Reardon – Platinum PADI Course Director/EFR Instructor Trainer #624779

It was 1999 when I learnt to dive in Egypt, and it was love at first breath. It was very soon after this initial underwater experience that I decided to live the life of a PADI Instructor.  Since leaving England in 2002, I have been fortunate enough to live and teach diving in many fantastic and exotic countries.  Having completed my Divemaster course in Thailand and my IDC in Indonesia, I have worked in New Zealand, Australia, Thailand, Cambodia, Indonesia, Egypt, Palau and the Philippines.  Becoming a PADI Pro changed my life forever, and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. I can help you make that change too…
