When I started working for this company, 2 years ago, he was one of the dive master trainees with not much diving experience but already with his long weird hair.
Unfortunately, after only a couple of weeks into his training he decided to jump into a tender and break his ankle.
That meant a little break from work and diving for young and wild Matty. However, after he recovered, he was back with us, better than never before!
Obviously, Matt was not going to miss the old tradition... Dive number 100 is a naked dive!
My 2 young open water students were impressed by Matties performance!

Once being certified as a professional dive master/ assistant Instructor, it didn't take him long to decide that diving was going to be his new career path.
Quickly after a few months working as Dive Master with us, Matty moved on to Indonesia to visit Komodo Island (my favourite dive destination so far) to complete his diving instructor course.
Luckily for us, once he completed his course he came back to Cairns, but this time was different because both of us were working together as instructors!
He is one of the best examples of how dedication, persistance and good work can take you really where you want to be!
Great times working with such a legend, always happy and ready for some adventures! Will be hard to forget 6 months sharing room with this hippie!
I had the best time of my life working with these two legends!
It was always a pleasure to work with you guys! #seriousdiving #seriousfun
Time to move on, safe travels and best luck in western Australia Matty! Send us some photos of the Whale-sharks!
