Mike Reed

PADI Instructor
DSAT Tec Instructor
EFR Instructor
Mike started diving in New Zealand in the early 70’s – back when everyone dived in wetsuits and things like buoyancy compensators were a novelty.  He has pursued the technical side of diving and is particularly keen on the deeper wrecks.  He holds instructor ratings with PADI & DSAT, as well as being an EFR Instructor and a CDAA member.
In his professional life, Mike is a partner with Oliver Wight and is working with a number of leading companies in Australia and New Zealand assisting them in achieving Business Excellence.  He has specialist expertise in strategy management, product and portfolio management and integrated business management.  A keen musician, Mike has played in a number of bands over the years and will occasionally pack a guitar along with the diving gear for a trip to Mt Gambier or other dive destinations.
When not instructing for Ocean Divers, Mike is often seen out diving in Port Phillip Bay or at the Ship’s Graveyard.  He enjoys underwater photography and offers tuition in digital underwater photography as well as the complete range of technical courses, all the way to full trimix..
