Travis Stewart – Dive Centre Manager
Dive Centre Manager
Travis first splashed into the Pacific Ocean at a young age curios of the world underneath. Being an avid enthusiast of all marine life and the life of the Pacific Northwest, his first dive was at Whytecliff park in the snow. The moment he descended into the ocean his world opened up and changed. After travelling to various locations around the globe over the last 5 years and training through various dive agencies he has finally hung his Diving helmet here in the waters of the Georgia straight. With his continuing passion involving all forms of recreational and commercial diving he has taken up his new station at the TED diving centre with vigor. He asks everyone to remember to push forward at everything you do and that enthusiasm is key!
