JJ-CCR Level 3 Instructor
An early adopter of the JJ-CCR in 2010, Kieran's diving started
as a 14th birthday present. Having followed his fathers diving for
many years he was lucky enough to join a club during a very active
phase; one club member was among the first to dive the Lusitania.
His interest in shipwrecks developed from this early age and by the
late 1990's Kieran had set out on a technical diving path with
Becoming a PADI instructor in 2003, he has worked in the dive industry full time since. Initially based at dive centres in Australia, Plymouth and Scapa Flow, he then started his own dive training and travel business. The German World War One wrecks in Scapa Flow still hold a special interest for Kieran. He now shares this though his 'Scapa History Week' that runs several times a year. A long held ambition is to dive the World War One wrecks at Jutland.
A keen photographer, Kieran regularly leads trips to dive fantastic locations such as Scapa Flow, the Norwegian Fjords and Truk Lagoon. Check out the Facebook link for pictures!
Founding Diving in Depth Ltd in 2009, Kieran now aims to cater for adventurous divers who are keen to extend their own diving capabilities and visit new places. Teaching CCR diving requires an in-depth knowledge of the workings of a rebreather. A trained technician with several scuba manufactures, with a good mechanical background, Kieran has kept people's CCR running in the remotest of locations.
Kieran's CCR diving has enabled him to visit some unique locations. By teaching people the necessary skills and conveying his practical approach to CCR diving, Kieran aims to help others do the same. This is one of the core goals of Diving in Depth.
Kieran teaches for IANTD, TDI and maintains his PADI membership. When not teaching Kieran is usually found leading technical dive trips to Scotland, Norway, the Mediterranean and South Pacific. With exciting new plans for Croatia, Malin Head, and the constant obsession with Jutland, as well as a keen interest in cave diving, the future certainly looks interesting!
