Cruise Directing/Liveaboards

I have worked extensively across Indonesia and Australia, with considerable time spent sailing/cruising and under the water guiding, teaching and safety diving. I have worked for several seasons in Raja Ampat and the offshore reefs in Western Australia, such as Scott Reef and the Rowley Shoals, cruise directing liveaboard vessels with a diving focus and also assisting photography and videography teams, with planning and execution of shoots, managing dive safety of the full team and research for dive schedules and emergency assistance/action plans. I can also assist in organising vessels for charter in several locations across Indonesia and Australia.


As a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor I have been working across Indonesia and Australia for almost a decade. Teaching a wide range of nationalities to dive from discover scuba-divers - who are trying diving for the fist time to open water, advanced, rescue and Divemaster courses. 

I also teach Emergency First Responder with can be done separately or as apart of a rescue and divemaster courses.

I like to focus on small groups when teaching beginners as I think it gives people the best chance to develop high quality diving skills and and build confidence. 

I also offer private courses if requested - this can give students the opportunity to overcome fears or work on problems they may have previously faced when learning to dive.

I also offer Buoyancy and getting-into photography courses on request.

Lena, Raja Ampat

“Wendy was my dive instructor when I did my rescue and dive master course in 2018. She was a great instructor, very patient and clear with different skill sets we had to learn, as well as her approach to helping me understand the theory. Lastly, she tailored the course to keep it challenging at times but also incredibly fun and I loved every minute of it."

Justine,Raja Ampat 

“I did my Advanced open water with Wendy and I can't recommend her enough.
She is truly passionate about the ocean. She is both professional  knowledgeable and friendly.”

Lorie, Raja Ampat 

"I did my first two dive certifications with Wendy. She emanates such peace and comfort which is so important for your learning process underwater. Due to her huge experience, she masters every aspect of diving and knows a great deal about the underwater world. Another big plus is Wendy cares so much about the health of the marine ecosystem. So you really respectfully approach the sea and reefs. Due to so many aspects, I can recommend her to the fullest."
