Meet new staff member in Pez Maya, Oliver McGuiness!

Dived for the first time in December of 2005 on the mystical island of Utila, Honduras, while travelling Central America. As soon as he surfaced from the dive, he looked at his instructor and said “I want your job”. A year and a half, and a load of money later he achieved his goal and was certified as a PADI instructor. Having worked as an instructor on the Meso-American Barrier Reef for 3 years, he joined the GVI team to feel like he is giving something back to the reef, which has given him so much over the years. Olly has a great passion for diving, teaching, travelling, and the marine life. Enjoying the feeling that he is always learning something new, he is regularly trying to enrol on different courses, mostly to do with diving. He is currently a Master SCUBA Diver Trainer, DSAT Tec Deep diver, EFR Instructor, O2 Provider Instructor, Deep and EANx Instructor, RAID Posieden MKVI Rebreather diver, RYA level 2 Power Boat driver, and holds a Diploma in Marine Biology.
