Certificate of Recognition

Davy Jones Diving in Arinaga, on the beautiful island of Gran Canaria (Canary Islands), recieved the PADI Certificate of Recognition for Outstanding Customer Service on the 26th of May 2015.

The Team of Davy Jones Diving with the PADI Regional Manager – Sascha Engeler

The owner of Davy Jones Diving, Brian Goldthorpe, has been diving since the mid-90’s and is a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer. He was awarded the PADI Elite Instructor certificate in 2013.

Before coming to Gran Canaria, he dived extensively in the UK at most of the popular sites including the Farne Islands, St Abbs, Oban and the Scottish West Coast, Plymouth, and of course inland sites such as Gildenburgh, Capernwray and Stoney Cove.

Brian has completed over 3500 dives and has dived in the Red Sea, Florida, Turkey, Cyprus, Corfu, Malta and other Mediterranean sites including the Medas Isles. With over fifteen years of diving experience in the Canaries, he is a wealth of knowledge on the Marine Life found in the Arinaga area, especially the secrets of the El Cabrón Marine Reserve.

His main interest today is digital underwater photography, for which he is also an instructor. In 2006 he was awarded a ‘Certificate of Recognition for Excellence’ by PADI for the teaching of their Digital Underwater Photography Course. He is also very interested in Angel Sharks, and has organised the three-year study with the University of Las Palmas into Angel Sharks in the El Cabrón marine reserve.

Congratulations once again to Brian and the whole Team of Davy Jones Diving for this Certificate of Recognition. Keep up the good work!
