Georgia’s Diving History?

Georgia’s first underwater bubble blowing experience was in a swimming pool in England when she took a discover scuba program. She enjoyed that feeling, but it wasn’t until she was backpacking through Indonesia, when she decided that enough was enough and would get under the waves and see what she was missing.

Upon taking her first breaths she immediately was hooked and fell in love with the ocean world vowing to become a Divemaster in the future.

After continuing training in England through Rescue diver, diving in Quarries and lakes with her dry suit, the scuba diving life beckoned, as she tried to get every moment she could underwater. After leaving England in 2003 and heading to Roatan, she completed her Divemaster and after gaining experience, moved on to her Instructor training.

A beautiful place to be, but island fever soon hit and she was off to explore new climes and headed south to the jungle and ocean paradise of Costa Rica settling there 9 years ago. After a brief stint in Florida teaching dive masters and assisting on IDCs she became a PADI Course Director 6 years ago and created Go Pro Costa Rica, whose focus is the development of professional and technical scuba diving courses.

Her education as an Instructor trainer has never stopped, and with over 25 specialty instructor and instructor trainer ratings she strives to bring a full spectrum of experience and training to the internships at Go Pro teaching programs that encompass all aspects of the dive world, preparing students to be valuable members of the dive industry with exciting careers ahead.

Non-diving passion

Costa Rica is an incredible place to continue to explore and I love traveling both here and abroad when I can. Whilst here, I love relaxing above the waves on my surfboard or hiking the jungle trails.
