Serene lives and breathes compressed air!  She is the face of Cuddlefish - our lovely Ms. Cuddle Pek!

 

Her love for diving will inspire anyone with her passionate and cheerful outlook.  Her students say that they feel safe when diving with her due to her patience and clear instructions.  Most of all, she makes the courses fun!

On land, she is as blind as a bat, once underwater, her eyesight magically switches to "macro" mode, and can spot even the smallest marine life possible!

PADI Dry Suit Diver

Cuddlefly Private Pilot

Cuddle Boat Skipper

 

Shawn is our Cuddle Bear, a gentle giant who is always smiling and ready to help!

 

A diver since 2005 - He's a strong believer in making our local waters beautiful again for diving and swimming.  His passion in diving was remarkably developed from the desire to overcome the fear of drowning!

 

A self-taught swimmer, he took the plunge at diving at Pulau Hantu as an open water diver and now specializes in helping 'wanna-be' divers to overcome their own fears and turning it into a passion.

 

If you need a reassuring and confident guide to convert your fears into the wonders in the deep sea, he's that guy!

Kee Wee or Kiwi (the fruit) as he is endearing known as is our Mr. Cuddle!

Pharmacist by day and scuba instructor most of the other times. This instructor has access to 'the' pills! You might want to befriend this cheerful and chirpy fellow very soon.

 

Always fascinated by the underwater world, when he's not talking about pills, he spends most of his time teaching others to enjoy the oceans and the amazing life found around coral reefs.

Jocelyn

SSI Advanced Open Water Instructor

Jocelyn would live underwater if she could!

 

You never have to worry about running low on air when you are diving with her.  Apart from nagging at you underwater to check your air every 15 minutes, she also barely uses any of her own compressed air and will have plenty for sharing if you actually do need some extra!

And if you need a laugh, keep an eye out for her sunglasses as you make your slow and steady ascent to the surface at the end of a dive.

Mou Jun

SSI Open Water Instructor

Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, a small experiment of finding something to do turned Mou's holiday passion into a full time career of diving. 

Despite the often-heard complaint of bad visibility making a bad dive, Mou enjoys diving in our local waters, calling it a mix between a treasure hunt and a meditative experience. 

Keep an eye out for him and his favourite visibility tester (green caMOU fins) next time you dive with us.

SSI Open Water Instructor

If you love laughs, he is one humourous chap. This is one guy that can make you laugh with the coldest joke.  Laughs aside, you will find him professional in his duties and an absolute joy to be with. He is like your older brother always willing to help, guide and provide suggestions.

Kelvin Fong

SSI Divemaster 

Kelvin is the life of all parties on land and underwater!  You can always count on him to make everyone laugh.

 

Besides being a DM, Kelvin is a very experienced hair stylist and runs his own hair salon, CALEO at The Adelphi.  He is definitely the one who brings the "SEXY" to diving - check out his self cut out Cuddle T-shirt!

Jokes aside, his passion for diving shows especially when he is around new divers, he takes good care of them and is always ready to lend a helping hand.

Jerome

SSI Divemaster 

Jerome is our goofy French DM, just look at this photo and you'll already love him!

 

He is always keen to learn new things, his thirst for knowledge is exemplary.  Jerome has probably read enough books to fill a bungalow!

When he is not diving, Jerome is a highly accredited Agile Trainer, ask him what that means and how to pronounce his surname when you see him!

As if all these is not enough, this guy is a magician as well!  Maybe he'll whip out a trick or two if you are lucky :)

Raj

SSI Divemaster

First Cuddle Intern!!

 

Ever since he picked up scuba diving at the tender age of 10, Navaraj has not stopped going back to the seas.

 

Be it snorkeling, diving or even surfing, the ocean runs deep into Raj's childhood. To him, going into the sea connects him back to the natural world.

 

Having completed his rescue course, Navaraj decided to take the next step by going professional with CuddleFish Divers and he has not looked back ever since.

 

If u ever see a big afro underwater... It might just be Raj!!

Bertrand

SSI Dive Master Trainee

 

Ask Bertrand what he likes about diving. He’ll tell you one thing – fish. Yes, fish. Just fish. 

And really, we mean anything to do with fish. From fishing, to admiring fish in aquariums, and even pursuing a short stint in a local fish farm, Bertrand has had more than his fair share of interaction with fish. 

Right now, he has concluded that the best way to enjoy fish is to see them up close and personal, right where they live! And that is how this fishman has come to join the Cuddlefish fam.

Oh, and as for why he is botak, well...we don’t think it’s fish related.
