Ryan completing his PADI Sidemuont Instructor Training at Auckland Scuba

An Interview with Ryan Hooper

I had gone through much of my adult life wandering, with no real definable purpose. Then events somewhat changed that, I began rebuilding myself looking for a passion, a challenge. As if by chance I was thrust into the world of scuba diving, never looking back or dwindling upon a forethought. The course is more than the simple outlines that you would think such a tale contains. It taught me things about myself, it gave me a purpose, a reason to wake up smiling. No words written on this page could whole heartedly describe the experiences, the character building I was oblivious to. As they say, its all easy in retrospect.

The people I went through the journey with and the instructors are a merit to all that is diving, all genuine, kind and inherently patient, helping us along the dimly lit path they themselves had walked shedding light on the passing shadows.
