For many years, a sport like scuba diving was a dream for Tony.
Then in mid-2002, Tony had a chance meeting with Master Instructor Gareth Rathlou who was engaged by Scuba Schools International in New Zealand to develop the adaptive scuba diving program.
As always, he seized the opportunity and became one of the first disabled persons in New Zealand to be certified scuba divers. A dream was realised and Tony was introduced to a whole new world under the sea.
Tony obtained his Open Water Diver certification that same year and has now logged over 200 dives. He enjoys diving tremendously and says he does not do it enough.
Tony scuba dives most often in New Zealand but has also dived in Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines.
