Meet the In2scuba dive team

Glenn Ralph
PADI Master Instructor - #631373
EFR Instructor and Head of Training
at In2Scuba

Glenn has been diving for over fifty years, having originally learnt in the military, when he was a YOUNG man. As the frequency of his diving increased over the years, so did his enjoyment, and in 2003 the route to a PADI Dive Professional was taken, and in the summer of 2004 moved to In2Scuba as it started..

This brought on extra opportunity to dive and the great satisfaction of helping others to enjoy his hobby and he is now regularly involved in diving courses. At the end of 2010 he seized the opportunity of taking over in2scuba

Diving has taken him to the Persian Gulf, Red Sea, Gulf of Aqaba, the Indian Ocean, the Caribbean, around the Canary Islands, to Cape Verde, New Zealand, the Irish Sea, the North Sea and English Channel, not to mention some fine English Quarries. The Red Sea is a favourite and regular resting place for him.

Glenn best likes to dive a reef and loves to watch the interaction of the marine life, trying his best to photograph it and to capture the splendour to reflect on later.

Next best is seeing the joy of student divers qualifying after four days of being together and seeing how far they have progressed in such a short amount of time, he feels this is really worth while and is what motivates him to continue to be available for training courses.




Alan Harris PADI Divemaster Trainee

Alan Harris
PADI Assistant Instructor #267639

Alan is one of In2scuba’s Professional dive team and has completed all his training with In2scuba in the UK.

He learnt to dive in March 2006, and gained his PADI Open Water certification in the UK when the lake was still frozen over! He went off on his honeymoon to the Maldives and was totally hooked.

As soon as Alan came back home he signed up to do the Advanced Open Water with In2scuba together with his wife, Gill. He then went on to complete 6 Specialities and has now achieved the PADI Master Scuba Diver rating following completion of the EFR and Rescue Diver courses. Alan became a PADI Professional Diver in March 2010, by completing a Divemaster internship with In2scuba.

Alan has dived throughout the UK and has returned to the Maldives each year. He is a keen underwater photographer, and enjoys sharing his passion for the underwater environment.

He says “I really enjoy bringing new people into diving, it’s a fantastic world below the surface. Everywhere has something to see, be it UK waters, inland sites or lovely warm blue oceans

Favourite dive to date: “I think it would be in the Maldives in the Lhaviyani Atoll. We were on the Kuredu Express and it was a time when the current wasn’t running hard. Gill and I were kneeling on the seabed at 24 metres watching a group of seven grey reef sharks swimming around us. They were all a good size and it was amazing to watch these graceful creatures.”





Maurice Durner

PADI Assistant Instructor No. 343192

Maurice started diving in July 2011 after putting it off for several years. Once started though, he couldn't stop and now dives every chance he has.

All of his training has been with In2scuba in the UK, but has joined trips and dived in Egypt, Lanzarote, Dominican Repuplic, Mauritius, apart from many locations around the UK, inland and offshore.

Like many UK divers he has a passion for wrecks and cautiosly loves to ramble around inside looking for treasures. None found yet of course.

He is a friendly and helpful person to whom all the staff and students warm immediately If you need some encouragement Maurice will always be there for you.





Neil Parfrement PADI Assistant Instructor

Neil Parfrement
PADI Assistant Instructor - #633362

Neil was bitten by the diving bug on his very first dive – a Scuba Try Dive in the warm waters of Antigua, and has been mad about it every since. Neil completed all of his training in the UK and as well as being qualified in 12 diver Specialities he has achieved his PADI Master Scuba Diver rating.

He is a fully qualified Oxygen Provider and Emergency First Aid Responder, holds a RYA Commercially Endorsed Powerboat License, a Maritime Operator's Short Range Radio Certificate and has completed the RYA Sea Survival course – so you know when diving with Neil you are in a safe pair of hands!

Neil loves diving in varied environments and exploring new sites. He has dived throughout the Australian coast line and extensively the Great Barrier Reef, North and South Red Sea, the Indian Ocean including Mauritius and the Maldives, the South Coast of England as well as extensively at inland sites in the UK (which he still has a soft spot for!).

If forced to choose Neil says wreck diving is one of his favourite dive types because of the element of adventure it presents - "...descending every time onto something like the SS Thistlegorm in the Red Sea is just breathtaking – especially when you remind yourself how few people will ever get to see and experience it. The sense of exploration and discovery is overwhelming – the history and the marine life combining to offer a truly unforgettable experience. When you consider that 75% of the world is covered with water – scuba diving opens up a huge unseen part of it for me to explore".

Like the rest of the In2scuba team, Neil is passionate about training other divers. So why does Neil do it? “The real motivator for training, for me, is knowing that when students qualify, I have helped give them the knowledge and tools to help them safely unlock this whole new world that I have discovered and they can see it for themselves.”

Most memorable dive to date: 8.00am in the waters of the Maldives, 14 metres down watching 12 or more fully grown Manta Ray's landing on a cleaning station - " was surreal… just like watching aeroplanes queuing up and coming in to land at Heathrow Airport on a busy day - awesome!"
