Position: Recreational Dive Manager

PADI Certification:  Master Instructor

Sam learned to dive in Fiji in 2001 at 11 years old, as a kid she was always in the water, particularly loving snorkelling while living in Savu Savu with her family.

When Sam finished school she knew she wanted to pursue a career path that allowed her to follow her passion for the ocean and contacted Rach at Abyss to chat about how she could become a PADI Pro! 

In 2008 at 18 years old, Sam began working at Abyss and completed her professional training to become an instructor. Since then Sam has achieved a number of professional level ratings and completed numerous courses to further her diving skills including technical and cave diving.

Sam’s main passion in diving lies with diver training, whether it be specialty courses, teaching new PADI pros or introducing people to diving for the first time. 

Like many other divers Sam absolutely loves dive travel and has visited many popular dive destinations around the world, some notable favourites being; Truk Lagoon, Tonga, Raja Ampat, Papua New Guinea, Mount Gambier, The Great Barrier Reef & Indonesia.
