Russ has been diving since 1994 and, in 2005, decided to exchange his London police uniform for a wetsuit and become a full-time dive instructor. Since then, he has worked in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Maldives. Luckily, the Maldivian islands must have stolen his heart as he has been diving here for the last six years and has no plans to leave anytime soon.
With his years of experience, his extensive knowledge of the dive sites and his positive and friendly nature, he is the perfect person to guide you in your dream Maldives diving holiday.
For the last three years, he has been seamlessly managing Orion liveaboard and has a dedicated group of return guests who love to dive and spend time with him.
