Amit is a passionate Sidemount and Technical diver, PADI Instructor, and aspiring Cave diver. He was born in sunny Trinidad and Tobago, immigrating to Canada when he was 10, and has called Nova Scotia home since then. His love for the water started at beaches like Maracas Bay in Trinidad and the iconic Pigeon Point Beach in Tobago. His respect for the natural world was nurtured by an addiction to nature documentaries, The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau, National Geographic, and parents who fed his thirst for understanding the interdependence of these complex systems.
Always interested in diving, it wasn’t until he was an adult that Amit was able to afford entry into the sport. Since then he’s passionately pursued advancing his skills, striving to improve and make up for lost time! You can usually find Amit negotiating a way to go for a dive, or finding ways to turn a dive chat into a sidemount chat. When he’s not diving he enjoys spending time with his wife Heather and daughter Aurora. He looks forward to passing on his passion for the ocean and diving to Aurora and is actively plotting his retirement to settle back to a place with beaches like home...and perhaps the odd cave to explore.
