Meet the Dive Bunnies Team
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.
