Your Personal Instructor

Marcus began his diving career in the UK in 2011. He moved to the Bahamas with his family in 2012.  After a few years as a PADI Instructor and Shark Feeder Trainer he was elevated to the role of Manager at Stuart Cove’s Dive Bahamas and Albany Luxury Resort, Nassau.

While at Stuart Cove’s he worked with a major dive centre in Florida – “Sea Experience”. There, he retrained ex-military personnel to be Scuba Diving Instructors as part of a US government rehabilitation scheme for wounded soldiers. Marcus also set up a successful internship program enabling these newly qualified Dive Instructors to gain hands-on instructing experience in the Bahamas. 

Aged just 25, he became a PADI Course Director in 2018 and gained recognition in 2019 for the frequent trainer award. Having instructed over 1,000 courses, he has completed in excess of 7,000 dives, over 3,000 of these in Maltese waters. Marcus has been resident in Malta since 2016 where he began managing one of the oldest dive shops before deciding to create his own dive centre, “ABC Diving”, in 2020.

Film and Media: Marcus has worked with Tom Cruise, Audrey Tautou, and Pierre Niney to name but a few. He worked as an underwater stunt double as both Jacques-Yves Cousteau and also his son, Philippe Cousteau in the 2016 movie, “The Odyssey”. He was also the ‘in-water’ stunt double for Luke Mably in the 2015 movie “Isolation”. Marcus has also modelled for “The Times Magazine”, photographed by the world-famous underwater photographer Zena Holloway and has worked with Chris Barton, founder of Shazam.
