Martin McGrath - Polar Dive Guide

Martin is a full time professional diver. Originally from the North East of England, he began diving whilst still studying for his degree. He freely admits to not being able to ”Walk past a puddle without wanting to get in it to see what’s at the bottom of it” and thinks that the North and South Polar regions are one of the best places on earth to do it. He currently resides in Sydney, Australia where he divides his time between diving, technical repairs, fire fighting and donning his wetsuit to clean the penguin pool at Sydney's Taronga Zoo!

He has done more than 8000 dives in a career lasting more than 25 years. He is a PADI Master Instructor, a BSAC Advanced Instructor and an HSE Commercial diver. He works as a safety and support diver for TV and Media crews in extreme environments. He has speciality instructor rating in more than 17 disciplines, and he is also a qualified skipper with sea survival and VHF qualifications.
Martin is an emergency first response instructor trainer and a scuba technician. He has dived in Antarctica, Australia, Scapa Flow, UK, Norway, France, Spain, Sicily, Beirut, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Oman, Caribbean, Indian Ocean, South Africa, Mozambique, Maldives and the Galapagos Islands. Martin has been Polar Diver Supervisor on many Waterproof Expeditions to the Arctic and Antarctica and is a Polar Diver Specialty Instructor.
