Tim became a technical diving instructor for IANTD in 1995 after working in numerous locations including the Phillapines, Similans, Koh Tao, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Sipadan, Borneo, Solomon Islands, Gran Canaria and Gibraltar.

He has been responsible for locating wrecks in the Gulf of Thailand, Perinthians, Penang, Malaysia and Gran Canaria. The oldest shipwreck Tim has located was approximately 2000 years old where Tim recovered an ancient Roman amphora.

Tim is a BSAC first class diver, Tech Diving instructor trainer and Dive Coxswain instructor examiner. After achieving technical instructor ratings in DSAT/IANTD these days he prefers to teach the mixed gas courses offered by BSAC as they are more wreck orientated, which is Tim’s passion.

Tim founded Davy Jones Locker Diving, which was originally set up as a one man outfit training expats in Hong Kong. He progressed into setting up dive centres in Gran Canaria, Gibraltar, Mae Haad and Sairee Beach in Koh Tao. He now owns and runs Davy Jones Locker in Sairee Beach, Koh Tao which is a BSAC centre of excellence and a PADI 5-Star Centre.
