Steve Ho

Assistant Manager & Technical Manager
My main roles are teaching Technical diving, Deep/Wreck specialties and equipment servicing, alongside general organisation of the dive centre.  I can help particularly with advanced dive training, equipment advice and repairs.
My passion is deep diving and for me I’m in it for the adventure and the challenge as well as the satisfaction of seeing my students set high standards for themselves, develop and achieve their goals.
