Pete Shaw - Waterproof Guide


Pete is a full-time professional dive instructor and dive centre manager working in the South West of England.  Always a water-sports enthusiast, he started diving some 20 years ago and, as with his other hobbies of swimming and windsurfing, rapidly transitioned into teaching.  When he’s not in the water with students, Pete enjoys exploring new dive locations and strives to continually enhance his knowledge by diving with a broad range of individuals from different backgrounds and agencies.
He loves to introduce people to the underwater world, ensuring that they put safety first, fun a very close second and enabling them to develop their skills is a privilege that should be treasured.
He has logged over 5,000 dives around the world, with the majority of these being in the cooler waters of Northern Europe; he is a PADI IDC Staff Instructor, BSAC Instructor, EFR First Aid trainer and holds recreational and technical diving qualifications with PADI, IANTD, TDI and BSAC.  
Throughout his career, Pete has been taught by, dived with and learned from, many of the top Instructors and Instructor Trainers from the world’s leading diving agencies; one of the many up-sides he acknowledges of working within the upper levels of the UK diving industry.
Pete is a Waterproof dive and snorkel guide in the Antarctica for Waterproof Expeditions.
