James Jackson


SSI XR Instructor - Try Dives and XR Foundation Course

James found his enjoyment for diving at a very young age, starting with shore diving South Bay Kaikoura for crayfish with his Dad - no formal training just the kind words "keep up".

At the age of 19 he finally completed his open water cert, and from then on it was all diving. An SSI Instructor by 2006, and now a SSI Advanced Dive Control Specialist Instructor training all levels of divers and dive professionals. Two years ago he also completed his XR Extended Range Instructor rating and will be running one of this year SSI XR Foundation courses. 

James will be found in his time off exploring the deep reefs, pinnacles and Islands of the upper West coast of the north Island.
