Jack of all trades Mike DaveyBefore moving to Coffs in 1996, Mike owned a Dive Charter business in Kingston, South Australia. So passionate about the sport, he even purchased, planned, and sank his own wreck, to create an artificial reef just off the coast.
A committed member of Coffs Coast community, Mike has enjoyed introducing the “other 70% of the planet” to 1000’s of divers during his career. Mike is passionate about the endangered Grey Nurse Shark, his Tech diving and now trying his hand at Videography.

Diver Deb Davey aka “The Boss”The crew all love Deb (and it’s not just because she pays our wages!). Deb is our diving fashion icon – that is assuming purple is fashion – when not busy making all those behind the scenes things happen which keep the Dive Centre humming along, or helping you with your selections from the shop, she does manage to still get the odd dive in at the islands. Oh, and she is also responsible for the all important Catering on the boat – just yet another reason she is so popular!
Master Scuba Diver, Financial Controller, and queen of all things purple in diving, co-owner.

Globetrotter Chris MorleyAnyone would think Chris and Mike are brothers, not that he looks as good as Mike, but by the way they carry on! Chris is quite often seen up to his armpits in grease working in the background in the boy's shed! Just like migratory birds, Chris and Michelle disappear for the winter to somewhere warmer to enjoy warm water diving all year round and making sure they brew their beer right!
