Paul Zuromski

Owner and Director

 

He began his diving adventures when he was first introduced to diving as a child by a family friend. As a born and bred country boy, as soon as he moved to the city in 1997, he enrolled in his Open Water Course and hasn’t looked back since. He became a dive professional in 2007 and is one of our leading instructors. He is both a qualified Instructor in PADI and SSI.  Having dived in some exotic and remote areas of the world, Paul still finds South Australia has some world class diving; but when abroad Paul especially loves the Solomon Islands. With experience in diving and travelling to destinations such as Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu, Bali, Cook Islands, Turkey and the Solomon’s, he is passionate about introducing new divers and not so new divers to these destinations as a Dive and Travel Guide. When not diving or travelling, you will find Paul skippering our fully surveyed vessel, ‘Nauti – Nomad’ or teaching first aid as a qualified Combat First Aider with the Australian Army.

Caitlin Wilkinson

Scuba Instructor

 

Caitlin began her journey with us in 2019


 

Ilana Archer-Ebdon 

Scuba Instructor

 


Ilana first fell in love with diving in a swimming pool, so it wasn’t a surprise when she completed her PADI Open Water Course that same year.  At 18 she moved to Cairns, Australia and became a Divemaster working on the Great Barrier Reef, and only six months later was an SSI instructor. On the Great Barrier Reef, Ilana guided certified divers, took future divers on their first dives and taught SSI Open Water Courses. 

After Australia, Ilana moved to Cozumel, Mexico and became a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer. Here she guided divers along beautiful reefs, dived in breathtaking cenotes and taught PADI Open Water Courses.

However, Ilana soon missed the Great Barrier Reef and moved back to Cairns and worked on liveaboards both teaching and guiding. After another year Ilana decided it was time to head to University and study Marine Biology, so she moved down south to Adelaide.

Ilana may be British, but she is not a fan of cold water. She misses the warm waters of the tropics, but she will jump in to introduce you the unique underwater world of South Australia.

Gerard Armstrong

Scuba Instructor

 

Gerry’s always loved the ocean and has been diving for 20 years. If you don’t find him diving underneath the deep blue sea he will be sailing on top of it. In 2015 he finished his Master Scuba Diving training taking him to the top of the recreational diving level, he then followed his passion for learning and teaching and became a Padi Professional.

His passion for travel and diving have taken him far afield to many exotic dive destinations, it’s hard for him to choose but Cuba is the one that stands out for its beautiful people, waters and aquatic reef life. In our local waters he loves to get out and find those elusive Leafy Sea Dragons or even better investigating our rusty wrecks and reefs.

Gerry loves to introduce and teach people to dive so that they can have the awesome opportunities he has had diving and travelling the world, just ask him about the different destinations when you catch him on your next course or at the shop.
