JoJo Butler

PADI Divemaster

Dorset Diving Project AWARE Officer


Hi, I'm JoJo, I'm a PADI Divemaster here at Dorset Diving Services, you'll also find me working at the dive centre throughout the week working in the shop,  doing the admin bits and organising the courses & trips/events.

I started my diving career with a PADI Open Water Course while studying Marine Ecology & Conservation at University. I experienced a few teething problems at first but did not let this knock me back and got straight back in the water the following week. Initially my diving plans were to go as far as Advanced with a handful of specialties so I could dive in clear, blue waters on my holidays. This did not quite go to plan, I caught the bug very quickly and soon started collecting PADI Certification cards.... and in 2019 I qualified as a PADI Divemaster! I love underwater photography and spotting all kinds of different wildlife under the water.

Since I started diving in 2014 I've dived many times off the coastline of Dorset, exploring the many wrecks, bays and piers that are on offer. I've also been lucky enough to dive the Red Sea (4 times in Different locations), The Florida Keys, Monterey Bay, Cornwall and Lundy Island. I've even done a couple of trips to Y-40, TODI Aquarium and Nemo33. 

My favourite dive sites include:

  • The Salem Express Wreck - The Red Sea
  • SS Thistlegorm Wreck - The Red Sea
  • James Eegan Layne - Plymouth 
  • Monterey Bay, California 
  • Snorkelling with wild Dolphins in Egypt
  • Lundy Island, Bristol Channel 
  • M2 Submarine Wreck, Portland 
  • Betsy Anna, Swanage


  • Diving with Humpback Whales
  • Silfra, Iceland 
  • Sardine Run, South Africa 
  • Ningaloo Reef, Australia 
  • Maldives 
  • Costa Rica
  • Mexico
  • And there's still plenty more I can add to the list!!!
