Paul Barnard

PADI Divemaster


Hi, I'm Paul, one of the PADI Divemasters at Dorset Diving. I started diving in 2012 in Poole so I could go abroad to Cuba for holiday. 

I had such a great time that when I came back, I completed moree scuba diving training. Since 2012, I have been diving in the UK and have been lucky enough to dive in Cuba, Egypt, Mexico, Turkey, Italy and Brussels. 

I've gained experience over 400+ dives and achieved PADI Master Scuba Diver before making the transition to PADI Divemaster in 2016.


I joined the Dorset Diving team in 2016 and have enjoyed teaching and helping new divers into the underwater world ever since. 

In 2018 I qualified as a PADI Discover Scuba Diving Leader and have been fortunate enough to help dozens of new divers discover a new found passion for Scuba Diving which I find hugely rewarding. 

So, what does the future hold for me? 

I'd like to keep doing what I'm doing but you never know what's around the corner....
