Kris McBride

Kris joined Divequest in October 2017 after spending the previous two years running a dive shop on a resort island in Fiji.

Originally from New Zealand, he went to school in Brisbane, Australia before setting off on various adventures around the world. His love for scuba diving began early whilst on a holiday in Cairns where he completed his first introductory dive on the Great Barrier Reef. From there, he got certified just outside of Adelaide, South Australia, which opened up a whole new world. After spending time diving in South Africa, Madagascar, New Zealand and Tonga, he eventually relocated to the Whitsundays, Queensland, where he completed his Instructor Certificate. It was in Fiji where he worked on several exciting projects including a research-based Bull Shark dive, Von Wong's 'Shark Shepherd' photoshoot and of course, competitive coconut bowling.

Kris now lives in Skipton, North Yorkshire, where he can be seen exploring the countryside with a pair of binoculars.
