Amanda - Staff Instructor

In 2005 Amanda decided that she’d had enough of cold Melbourne winters, swapped Australia for steamy Vietnam and soon found herself on her first dive in the Philippines…was she actually on the run?

Immediately addicted she then spent the next few years diving some of the best spots in South East Asia and in 2014 packed in her real job to become an Instructor and has worked across Indonesia, Dominican Republic and Spain.

Amanda is a Staff Instructor and in addition to the standard diving courses also teaches several specialties including: 

Navigation, PPB, Deep, Emergency Oxygen, Drift Diver, Enriched Air, Night and Limited Visibility, Science of Diving, Navigation, Diver Stress and Rescue.

Hannah - Rescue Diver

Hannah came to diving in 2011, and certified as a Junior Open Water Diver at the tender age of 12 in 2012, progressing to Junior Advanced Open Water Diver a year later.  

Having spent the last 8 years as a Rescue Diver, Hannah took the plunge (pun intended) earlier this year to certify as a Dive Master and is now a Dive Master in training.

With qualifications in animal management, Hannah keeps the Dive Bunnies team on the straight and narrow when it comes to all things environmental and is also our social media manager and content writer.

Johan - Instructor

Johan really had no choice when it came to becoming a diver. He met Amanda while living in Vietnam and she persuaded him to enjure a Discover Scuba Dive. They then moved to Indonesia where he didn’t need any arm twisting to complete his Open Water and Advanced courses.

Johan certified as a Divemaster, and then took it a step further becoming an instructor in 2017.  

In addition to the standard diving courses Johan also teaches several specialties including:

Deep, Cavern, Equipment Specialist, Emergency O2, DrySuit Diver, Sidemount, Enriched Air Nitrox, Dive Against Debris.

Locations Dived: Philippines, Indonesia, Spain, Egypt, Australia. 

Luke - Instructor & Photographer

Luke is from Chippenham, England and his fascination with the ocean was stoked in his early childhood. In 2011, he moved to Australia, where his first successful underwater shot of a green turtle kick-started his love for photography. 

His career in diving started selling tours in Vietnam and in 2013, he became a Dive Professional. As a photographer, he began shooting while working in Fuerteventura, taking shots for dive students.  It was in Komodo that he purchased his first Olympus TG-4, and worked on techniques in his spare time. 

The real leap was when he joined the Siren and Master Fleets of Worldwide Dive and Sail. He worked as a Cruise Director/Divemaster and was introduced to some of the world’s top underwater photographers, which inspired him to invest in tools that really gave him an opportunity to grow - a Sony A7rii in the Nauticam housing. 

He is now based in Mexico, where he continues to work as an instructor and photographer.  

Locations dived: Fiji, the Cayman Islands, Indonesia, Palau, Bahamas, the British Virgin Islands, Mexico and more! 

Luke has his own business independent from Dive Bunnies and offers lots of exciting trips and opportunities! Check out his Facebook and Instagram for these trips and his amazing photography!
