Alex has spent previous summers working in Honduras, achieving his PADI Instructor Certification and gaining experience in the dive industry.

    Durban, South Africa

    Born in a beachside city in South Africa and raised in Western Australia, a state with over 6000 miles of coast line, it’s easy to say that wherever there’s an ocean, Amy feels at home. Amy’s passion for sailing and diving truly flourished when she moved full time onto a sailing vessel traveling around Australia, in an attempt to quite literally sail away from the chaos of COVID. Here she became a dive instructor and so is excited to start her first season with Sail Caribbean teaching in the incredible waters of the BVIs. As a Photographer/Videographer Amy loves to share her passion for the ocean through a creative lens that she hopes will spark joy and inspire others to love & care for the ocean as much as she does!
