About us - the Scuba Travel Team
Scuba Travel grew out of a love for the sea, travel and adventure. We are a company with a lot of energy that set the standards high for both ourselves and our partners abroad.
Our focus over the last eight years is to have hands on knowledge of our products. This is so that we can offer our customers better quality, more detailed service and an amazing memory for life. In order to do this, we inspect the destinations and products that we sell on a regular basis.
We are very flexible with our customers wishes and besides just diving, can arrange adventure packages that add a little more flare to the trip. We can offer trips for all levels of divers from beginners to tech-divers, as well as non-divers, families and adventure seekers.
We are also proud to be able to offer holidays for disabled divers.

Whilst serving in the British Army Jamie fell in love with the ocean. Upon leaving, his adventure underwater really began. Jamie worked as a dive instructor and dive boat skipper in the Uk for 2 years before heading to the sun. His first stop was Egypt where he mostly ran instructor training courses. From there he moved to Thailand to head up the training team of a large school in Phuket.
They say that once you have been to Africa your life will never be the same again and for Jamie thats totally true. In 2004 he land in Tanzania to run a marine research project on Mafia Island and from there he has travelled and dived extensively across the continent. Sharks quickly became a huge passion of his and he has worked with some of South Africa's true pioneers of cage-free Shark diving.
Apart from Sharks Jamie met his "Swedish" partner in Africa, which is why he now lives in Gothenburg and works for us here at Scuba Travel.
Jamie is part of the sales team and will mainly focus on sales to agents.
