MSDT PADI Professional
“ScubaMom”
Hilary Jenkins started diving in 2006 and it was love at first breath. Passionate about the underwater environment, conservation, education and an avid photographer, Hilary became a PADI MSDT in 2010 and has worked at several dive centres in South Africa. She has travelled widely as a diver and non-diver – her favourite dive locations being Nosy Be in Madagascar and our varied Southern African coastal dive sites. Her greatest delight is turning even the most nervous student into a confident, comfortable diver and passing on her enthusiasm for everything aquatic. With loads of life experience and patience, Hilary is the instructor we pass our ‘problem children’, young and old, onto!

Werner Van Der Merwe lives by the words of Sir Richard Branson, “Don’t waste your time doing things that don’t excite you. Find your passion and grab it with both hands.” With 20 years of experience as a scuba diver and 10 years as a PADI MSDT instructor, he found a place where his passion for people and the ocean meet – scuba diving and training. With diving experience from the top of the Africa, through the tropical waters of the East, all the way round into the deep blue to the West, he’s explored not only the ocean and all its wonders with his camera at hand but also introduced its beauty to everyone he meets.
