Scuba Knights, originally known as Scuba Delectables, was established in 2013 by Dom and George. As their passion for diving grew, so did their commitment towards scuba diving and the marine world. As avid photographers themselves, they’ve witnessed the devastating effects that humanity have inflicted on the marine world and it spurred them in wanting to create more awareness on marine conservation.
Together with other like-minded friends they’ve made through their diving endeavours, the duo decided to embark on a new chapter in their diving journey with Scuba Knights to introduce and share the wonders of the ocean and marine conservation through diving classes.
Chris is an Electrical Engineer with a penchant for sound systems engineering. At work, he deals with hazardous voltages and power enough to light up a 10 city blocks. Outside of work, Chris is 'The Man' behind the scenes setting up and tuning sound system for concerts and events. Chris has been diving since 2012 and is passionate about large marine animals, especially sharks, which he may be a little bit too overenthusiastic about. He can always be found raving to people about his dive stories (especially about a time when he a hammerhead decided to swim towards him and it froze him until he forgot to click the camera shutter).
