A little Q&A with Grace:

Q: What is your next personal or professional dive training goal?
A: Personally, I’m working towards my Cave DPV Course

Q: What spot is on your dive bucket list?
A: There are so many but off the top of my head: Eagle’s Nest,  the caves of the Bahamas, The Gunilda wreck and Scapa Flow!!!!!

Q: What’s one piece of dive gear you can NOT live without and why?
A: I love all my gear – my backplate, my drysuit, my canister light (it’s even part of my weighting system), but if I had to choose,  my Shearwater Perdix – I totally feel naked and in the dark (literally) without it, or my Drysuit are my favourites for sure.
