Abyss Scuba Diving

Andria Payne


Position: Dive Travel Manager

PADI Certification: Master Instructor

While not originally from Australia, Andria learned to dive on the Great Barrier Reef while on holiday in 2013 and has since done most of her diving in Australia. Diving played a big role in her decision to move to Australia for a year before moving back to the States. In that year she spent more time in the water than out of it that she decided to pursue this passion and become an instructor and settle in Sydney. She's enjoyed teaching a wide variety of courses in Sydney including her newest obsession - freediving!

As Abyss' Dive Travel Manager, Andi loves combining the two passions and getting to explore underwater worlds most people don't get to see. Andi loves sharing travel stories and introducing new places and ideas with you for your next trip.

Besides travel, and diving, Andi is happy to talk your ear off about her puppy - ask to see a photo of Norbert next time you're in.
