About Us

Adventure Dive Travel is a tour operator that aims to make divers dreams come true! Be that face to face with a Tiger Shark or gliding along a historic wreck, we can help you tick items off your bucket list again and again!

Our mission is to help more people become story tellers and choose ecotourism for their adventures. The ocean needs more story tellers because as Jacques Cousteau once said ‘people protect what they love’ and we all love a good story.

Reducing our impact on the environment is important to us, so we handpick all our suppliers based on their values. By doing this we ensure that our suppliers are like-minded and that they too are committed to helping the future of our planet and all the species that call it home. It is also important to us that our adventures only ever have a positive impact on the local people in the areas we offer trips to, so this also comes into consideration when selecting our suppliers. You can book in peace knowing that we have investigated this for you and made sure that your adventures impact will be as small as it can be.

It would be our pleasure to help you create an adventure that gives you memories that last a lifetime and endless stories to tell.

Meet the team

We are a team of adventure loving divers, fuelled by our passion for travel we want every diver to explore the amazing planet we live on. Adventure Dive Travel is run by two friends – Chris & Ryan, we both have a passion for adventure and a deep love for ocean.

Chris

I am an experienced diver with a love for adventure. Adventure and diving has taken me to places I could only dream about going including Fiji, French Polynesia, the Maldives and South Africa.

Why diving? – I love diving for many reasons, but the standout reason has to be the marine life, the diversity, personality and beauty of these creatures never ceases to fascinate me. My diving claim to fame would be that I have dived with Tiger Sharks in the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian Oceans.

Why adventure? – Adventure has always been part of my life. My family have always been sailors, so from a very young age I have been out on the water exploring. This passion has grown and grown as I have got older, aside from many diving adventures I also love safari. I have now been on many safaris, my favourite safari is going by myself unguided in the Kruger National Park, being out in the bush just you, your 4×4 and nature is incredible!

Favourite dive? – It’s hard to pick a favourite but it would have to be Tiger Beach in the Bahamas. I spent a week at Tiger beach in 2016 at a dive site aptly called ‘Fish Tales’ which always seems to deliver! On one dive we had 8 Tigers for company a swarm of Reef and Lemon Sharks and a Great Hammerhead even made an appearance. The Tigers included the famous ‘Emma’ a massive tiger that has featured on numerous documentaries.

Ryan

I have been diving for a while now and I have always loved being on the water and adventure. I have travelled to many places including Mexico, USA, the Maldives and South Africa.

Why diving? – I dive because of the freedom and the feeling of exploration I get when I dive. I also love the marine life and the respectful interactions you can have with them.

Why adventure? – I love action and adventure for the trill and experience. I enjoy travelling, surfing and sailing so naturally diving adventures came next! I enjoy being active and exploring new places and seeing what adventures I can find within them.

Favourite dive? – My favourite dive would be diving with the Bull Sharks of Mexico. It was incredible watching these huge apex predators gliding all around me without them caring about my presence. Being so close to such an awesome shark was breath-taking, I didn’t want the dive to end!
