Head Instructor, Dive Master & Baited Shark Leader
Originally from Cape Town, Charl decided to follow his passion for the oceans at the age of 18 first embarking on his journey as a Class iii Commercial Diver qualifying in 2012. This is where his career started and for the next four years he gained valuable experience in a variety of fields in the industry. In 2013 he continued his training as a PADI Professional becoming an Open Water Scuba Instructor in Sodwana, not long after qualifying he was awarded the PADI Elite Diver Certificate. But that’s simply wasn’t enough. He continued his education and qualified as an offshore Yacht Master at the end of 2014.
Charl is clearly a lover of all things H20! Especially sharks, which brought him on his next adventure to Aliwal Shoal! He has since become a valuable member of the ADC team and is our Head instructor and our most experienced Dive Master, Baited Shark leader and all-round fix it guy.
Charl also enjoys taking awesome pictures on his dives of the underwater world and life on the Aliwal Shoal reef and shark dives.
