After leaving to pursue his dream of becoming PADI pro in the tropical waters of Honduras, and work as a marine biologist and instructor in some of the most remote, beautiful places in the world, he decided it was time for a return to city life. You'll find Harry teaching in the pool or running trips most weekends, and always willing to give advice about equipment and courses and share his experience when you visit us at Big Blue.
