Andrea Stanley is 34 years old, comes from Cheshire UK, and has been teaching diving since 2001. Diving is her main passion, closely followed by skiing (but she had to give that up due to self-preservation!). She started diving in 1999 in Corsica and South Africa, but did all her professional training in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Sports and the outdoor life led her to Malta where she is now firmly settled and the proud new owner of NDS. Andrea also speaks fluent German.
Alan Porter is 39 years old, comes from Bristol UK. He has been a PADI instructor for 11 years. He has a broad knowledge of all types of diving, drift, cold water altitude diving etc. He is a keen conservationist, regularly taking part in underwater clean ups. His favorite past times include travel, reading and he is currently trying to learn a foreign language. He has also worked as a diving instructor in England, so diving in Malta is a very enjoyable experience for him as the water temperature is very tolerable.
