Kev Craddock – Master Instructor 619528


PADI Master Instructor and First Aid At Work Instructor, Emergency First Response Instructor, including Care for Children and Defib, DSAT Trimx Diver, Tec Rec Diver and Gas Blender Instructor.

I first took the plunge on holiday in France in 1996. On returning home I signed up with a local dive school. I became hooked on the whole dive experience.

I quickly found that I wanted to progress up the professional dive ladder. I attained my Open Water Scuba Instructor in 2004 and my current PADI Master Instructor rating in August 2012. I hold Speciality Instructor Certifications for Enriched Air, Deep, Boat, Deep, Drift, Search and Recovery, Dry Suit, Night, Wreck, Under Water Navigation, SMB Diver, Digital Underwater Photographer, Pier Diver, Self-Reliant Diver.

I am a Poseidon MkIV CCR Rebreather Diver and Technician. I am an APEKS, Cressi-Sub, Poseidon and Sherwood service technician.

I have dived extensively along the South Coast of England, and have worked for several schools in the UK. I have been with Flippas-n-Fins since 2002.

I have dived, worked and guided in the UK, Egypt, Malta and Lanzarote and dived in France, Tenerife, Beiruit, Tunisa, Gozo, Florida, The Cape Verde Islands, South Africa and Bali.

Beware; I am a confirmed dive nut, just as happy bumbling along off Chessil beach or Ringstead Bay between Christmas and the New Year, (and yes we have the images to prove it), or in some exotic dive location in the height of summer. I just want to dive.

Come and have a play, you just might love it.
