Meet The Team


Nick Mobley – Managing Director

Nick went well beyond badge collecting. When he came in to do his Divemaster course with LSD a few years back he ended up buying the company. We still think that is the biggest up-sell in PADI history! He is an Assistant Instructor and spends his time mostly pushing the LSD brand to new heights behind the scenes. Nick used to work in the world of IT & Consulting before seeing the light and living the life of riley.


Colin Mac Andrias – Center Manager & PADI Course Director

Colin worked for 6 years in Dahab, Egypt before escaping back to the cooler climes of London. After a spell at Diver Magazine testing gear and jetting off to various foreign hotspots in the name of work, he finally settled with us here at LSD. Colin heads the staff at LSD and leads all the PRO courses at the center and has been the force behind LSD achieving the highly coveted PADI CDC award for 7 years in a row since 2009 as well as him having been awarded a Platinum Level Course Director.


Neil Thomas – Assistant Manager & PADI Course Director

Neil escaped from normal life in the UK in 2006 in search of the fountain of youth, but after completing his PADI instructors course in Cyprus he realized the scuba life was a much more desirable occupation. He has a fantastic diving CV, teaching in many countries around the world including Thailand, Australia, Egypt and the Caribbean to name but a few. Eventually after 4 years teaching, his journey across the globe brought him to LSD where he is now our Assistant Manager and also assisting Course Director on all the Instructor Development Courses.





Emma Bolton – Assistant Manager

Emma joined us in 2016 after we managed to convince her that diving in the UK was much better than working as a Diving Science Officer on the tropical island of Montserrat in the Caribbean. Emma is one of our resident Staff Instructors who assists on the IDC programs as well as teaching all the other diving course. She has tonnes of UK diving experience having worked at many of the inland diving sites such as Vobster Quay and we are delighted to have her as part of the LSD team.
