ROBYN FYFE - Owner, Instructor

I have always wanted to learn to dive as long as I can remember and diving in Galapagos was a childhood dream. When I moved to Victoria in 1980 the first thing I did was get certified, then I found a great diving community and trained up to PADI Divemaster. During my 10 years in Victoria, I regularly dived local sites and discovered the incredible, critter rich waters of Port Hardy, including breathtaking Browning Passage and the exhilarating Nakwakto Rapids. Fast forward to 2012 my husband, Scot, encouraged me to become a PADI Instructor and to this day I enjoy introducing new divers to the wonders of our ocean. Scot and I fulfilled my dream of diving in Galapagos in 2013 and we also visited Bonaire, Curacao and Thailand for some spectacular diving. Of our 6 kids, 5 are certified and we hope to have the 6th certified after she finishes giving us beautiful grandchildren who are already hooked on the idea of becoming divers. I love owning Pacific Pro Dive because it is a perfect way to build community and promote conservation. I hope to see all of you out diving soon!

What is it about diving you love? The best part of diving is the community. I love meeting new divers and experienced divers alike and sharing our wondrous underwater world with them. It is never boring seeing the same creatures over and over but so exhilarating finding new ones and the same goes for dive buddies.

What is your favourite dive site? My favourite dive site is Seven Tree Island in Browning Passage, near Port Hardy. Every dive there is sensory overload because there is so much life to see. I am truly spoiled to live where the best diving in the world is at my fingertips.

What advice can you give to new divers? Don’t stop at Open Water. Keep diving, keep learning and keep exploring the wonders of our ocean.


I believe that our responsibility as people is to be good stewards of our planet, the animals on it and the environment in which we live. As a dive center we are in a unique position to teach people just how delicate and diverse our underwater world is.  Seeing the excitement in the eyes of a new diver makes it all worthwhile. The world is an amazing place, and diving around the world has opened my eyes to how beautiful the oceans and the life in it are. It’s a reminder to never take what we have for granted.

What is it about diving you love? I love the uniqueness of underwater life and the diversity from one side of the island to the other. It is important that we educate each other on how to respect and conserve the life.

What is your favourite dive site? My favourite dive site is in Galapagos because there is so much big life.

What advice can you give to new divers? Never be afraid to ask as many questions as you can before you make your first gear purchase.

Guy Dewolf - Divemaster

Guy took up scuba diving in 2017 after retiring and moving to the Comox Valley. Guy is now a Dive Master, leading local dives, and also works in Pacific Pro Dive's Courtenay dive centre. As a military veteran Guy is also a member of CFB Comox's 19 Wing Pacific Divers Scuba Club with whom he teaches Discover Scuba Diving courses, assists with Open Water courses and serves on the club's technical committee. When not scuba diving Guy is frequently riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle year round with his fellow veteran biker friends around Vancouver Island and beyond.   

What is your favourite dive site? Of the numerous amazing dive sites around Vancouver Island Guy is most fond of China Creek located just south of the town of Port Alberni. The wreck and the wall at China Creek are wonderful dives for both beginners and more advanced divers.

What is your favourite piece of dive gear? Guy's favourite piece of equipment is his underwater light, which he uses for indicating underwater points of interest for other divers and illumination for photography.

What is it about Vancouver Island diving you enjoy so much? Guy was born and raised on Vancouver Island and has a strong connection to the land and waters here. The marine life is abundant and captivatingly beautiful. With the mild winter climate, diving the waters around Vancouver Island is a year round activity. Emerging from the sea after a winter dive to see the snow capped mountains of the Central Vancouver Island Mountain Range and the Coast Mountains is to experience some of the most unparalleled natural beauty of Vancouver Island.

Andrew Luck - Divemaster

I am a retired Combat Engineer. I started diving in 1987 and have pursued diving on and off over the years. I am currently working as a Divemaster assisting with classes and guiding groups as well as individual divers. I am also an active member of the Comox Base Military Dive Club where I volunteer my time as club Vice President, Divemaster and on the Technical Committee. When I am not in the water, I can be found riding my mountain bike on local trails in the valley.

What is your favourite dive site? There a multitude of amazing dives on and around Vancouver Island. When at a site I can be heard saying that Bold Point is one of my favourites. They are all good, but given the choice, I will go to Bold Point on Quadra Island because it has dramatic walls and an abundance of life.

What is your favourite piece of dive gear? My favourite piece of equipment is my mask. A good dive mask will make or break a dive. I use an Atomic Subframe that is perfectly fitted to my face with the cheater lenses which allows me to see my gauges and enjoy leak free dives. Buying a mask that fits is the key.

What is it about Vancouver Island diving you enjoy so much? I love the diversity of marine life on the island. We get the opportunity to dive with some amazing creatures from sea lions and seals to wolf eels, octopus and incredible flora and fauna, Every dive is a new experience.

Jen Hartmann - Divemaster

What is your favourite dive site? - Depends on the day! Singings Sands is my favourite night dive, Madrona is a wonderland of life that never gets boring, and Mermaid Cove has my absolute favourite topography (but if you didn’t kiss the statue, you didn’t do the dive)

What is it about diving you love? - Everything. The community is amazing, and I’ve met some of my favourite humans through it.  Diving opens you up to explore so much of our world and creatures that you just would never get to experience otherwise.  Getting to share some pretty wild moments with octopus, sea lions, and all sorts of freaky fish is something I will forever be grateful for.

What advice can you give to new divers?- Be safe and be smart.  Nobody likes to call a dive, but we’ve all had to.  The ocean isn’t going anywhere.  Know your limits, and push them in the right environments - namely, courses!  Get out there and build your experience, but get the training you need to dive how you want.  It’s easy to forget that things can and do go wrong when you haven’t had a bad experience - but don’t wait until you do to start using your head.

Ryan Verma - Divemaster

I started diving in 2008 when a good friend convinced me to take the open water course while we were at the Royal Military College in Kingston. I had a rather long hiatus from diving when I got stuck in Saskatchewan for nearly 9 years, but now that I'm here in Comox, I'm fortunate to be able to dive much more frequently. I enjoy helping new divers with their buoyancy and trim, sharing lessons I've learned from my diving mentors and my own experience over the years. When I'm not diving, I'm sailing, skiing, hiking, weightlifting or talking to airplanes as an Air Traffic Controller at the Base.

What is it about diving you love? The underwater world is completely different to the world we live in above water. The topography, plants and animals are all different and are varied depending on where you dive. I love exploring this world within our world and meeting the inhabitants, and seeing them go about their daily business, I've come to realize we have more in common than one might think.

What is your favourite dive site? In our local waters, the Madrona Walls are my favourite site. There is such a variety of life to be seen that you'll never have an uneventful dive at Madrona!

What advice can you give to new divers? Master your buoyancy, trim and finning techniques, and be extremely familiar with your equipment! Your Open Water course gives you the most essential training, but it's up to you to practice your skills and make navigating the water as second-nature as walking. Not only will this increase your overall enjoyment of diving, but it will help protect the underwater environment and decrease the risks associated with SCUBA.

Jackson Kuhn, Team Member

I started Diving when I was twelve after moving to the Comox valley from Ontario and I have loved diving since. When i'm not playing sports or at the shop i'm out in vancouver islands waters scuba diving.

What is your favorite dive site? Out of all the dive sites I've visited, I would have to say that Mermaid cove is my favorite. The statue is amazing alongside the sea life

What is it about diving that you love? Diving isn't like anything else that you will experience and that's one of the reasons I love diving, I also love diving because of the diving community.

What is advice you'd give to new divers? Be safe! Diving is fun and exciting but if you don't do a number of certain things you could seriously injure yourself.
