Meet the Blue Planet Divers

Becky Pearce – Dive Officer  PADI/ RAID OWSI


Becky Pearce diver


I have been diving for around 6 years, my first ever experience being at the aquarium! Since then I have logged around 1000 dives around and a further 2000 dives at the aquarium.

The most beautiful place I’ve dived would probably be Malaysia because of its marine diversity but there are plenty of places I’m still yet to see.

My favourite shark changes from day to day – They’re all my favourite!
