About Down to Scuba

Emma was initially terrified of deep water but overcame her fear to complete her Open Water scuba diving course, Advanced Open Water, Rescue, Deep Diving, Wreck Diving, Night Diving Specialities and her professional DiveMaster Training. She then became a full-time underwater videographer, then an Open Water Scuba Instructor, before becoming a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer, teaching and certifying hundreds of scuba divers, while living and working in South East Asia. Phew!

Now managing a dive center in Thailand, Emma, created Down To Scuba as a community to share knowledge and dive experiences from around the world. A community to help beginners and those who are looking to take the plunge into the water, and into the wonderful world of scuba diving, snorkeling, and freediving!

With the help of her colleagues, friends, and students, she has created the newest and most informative travel dive guide to the coolest and exciting dive spots around the world. She also interviews fascinating people who work in and around the water.

Join the community, and get Down to Scuba!
