Life as the Midnight Blue Captain

We always talk about the exciting fish we see when we are diving or snorkeling or the fantastic day we've had out on the boat or the new beginner divers we've just certified....but none of this is possible without our boat crew - Captain Ded and boat boy X.

These guys are an integral part of our great team and work just as hard as anyone keeping all of our customers safe out on the water, helping everyone in and out of the water with their equipment on, serving a great lunch and of course keeping the boat clean and in tip top condition for every trip. Having spent 10 years growing up in Switzerland, Ded also speaks German as well as English!

They too have their down time during low season but also have the job of keeping an eye on the maintenance aspects of the boat that are always required. And now we are ramping up to high season, these guys will be working flat out every day taking Midnight Blue out for our divers and snorkelers.

Customers often comment about our baby faced Captain but he is old enough to drive - honest!! Both Ded and X are also Chelsea supporters so with an almost all 'true blue' dive team as well, Midnight Blue is the perfect boat for The Dive Academy!

So here's a look into a day in the life of our Captain.......
