Paul Toomer

Country of residence:
England, sometimes South Africa

Certifications:
RAID (PADI, IANTD, TDI) CCR and OC Trimix IT

Type of diving:
I am co-owner and Director of Diver Training for RAID international, which is a fully digital online learning system. I am not just a teacher and director, I am an avid cave, wreck and trimix CCR diver and I have 1000s of hours on CCR and Open Circuit in all these arenas.

Best diving experience:
My best tech experience is a very hard question to answer. Bikini Atoll must rank very highly, but also some of the deep wrecks I have dived and the ones I have searched for truly make my life exciting. Right now, I am with my team getting ready to explore some unused British mine systems. It never ends, there is always something great to do.

Playground:
Caves, Deep, Wrecks, Extreme cold … countries… exploring, teaching… All of it, you will find me in every environment if I get the opportunity, but wrecks seem to be the most popular environment.
How much do you dive per year: Anywhere between 150 and 300.
