PADI IDC Staff Instructor
Thomas (Tom) started diving with Dive2gether in Plakias on the south coast of Crete, Greece when he was 12 years old. As his family and him have fallen in love with Plakias and Crete they have been coming on annual holidays since 2007.
Tom used these holidays to climb his way up the PADI ladder until 2012 when he became a PADI Divemaster and started to work at Dive2gether in Crete.
After 2 years and by then a PADI Instructor he decided to work as a sports teacher in England, his home country. Since 2015 he is back on the south coast of Crete and became a PADI IDC Staff Instructor and ready to help you pass your IDC and become a PADI Instructor yourself.
