Did his first dive at 10 years old and has been doing it ever since. After university he followed his dream, diving his way round the world gaining experience from all over. Diving in the UK, France, Italy, Thailand, Mexico, Indonesia, Australia and Egypt to name a few. Working on diving safari boats and with daily diving centers. James has been a professional diver for nearly 12 years and accumulated over 8000 dives. 8 of these years have been spent in Sharm el Shiekh, Egypt.
Getting fed up of diving centers turning into machines, no longer being about the guests and the diving but all about business and money, he decided to take over Anthias Divers and make a diving center based around the divers and the diving, passing on his passion for the underwater world to clients and new divers.
