Lynne Clafton

Lynne Clafton

Owner | PADI Master Instructor

Lynne The Boss! As the magnet behind the shop counter says: ‘Would you like to speak to the man who thinks he’s in charge or the woman who actually knows what’s happening?

Lynne has been a diver for more years than she will probably admit to. The love of diving took over to the extent of not just qualifying as a PADI Master Instructor, but also changing life the Universe, and everything, giving up a very sensible job in town … to buy a dive centre!

Now she justifiably has the opportunity to talk diving, live diving, and even occasionally go diving.

Ian Clafton

Owner | PADI Assistant Instructor

Ok, not the best photo, but the only one we managed to get without inappropriate gestures being offered!

Ian is the genius of the service centre and salesman extraordinaire. Ian has been the real visionary for the evolution of Aquanaut, and has endless plans for the future as well.

There is very little that he doesn’t know about dive equipment and does occasionally jump in the water and dive himself.



Manager | PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor

Toni started diving as a teenager and loved it so much that she became an instructor at the age of 19, working part-time in the industry for years.

Toni then took a break while she accidentally worked in finance for far too long, but loved the water too much to stay away and came back to the dive industry, working between both of our centres, and excited to start teaching again!
