Meet the Team
PADI Course Director
Ed, originally from the United Kingdom; became Mayan Divers resident PADI Course Director January 2014. Ed’s story is a familiar one, shared by countless others among the many thousands of enthusiastic dive professionals, who now enjoy this amazing lifestyle!
Earning his scuba certification was one of Ed’s ‘must do’ experiences planned while backpacking around the world. Ed decided right then that he must become a part of this life changing sport and dreamed of becoming a scuba instructor! Two years later, Ed gained his PADI Instructor rating in 2006 right here in the Bay Islands of Honduras and began living his dream, working as a PADI Instructor all over the Caribbean!
