Advanced BSAC Diver - Assistant Instructor

As an experienced diver Mark enjoys exploring new areas especially when there is a possibility of food for the pot.

Jolly Good Cook!

Mark trained as a chef, and has managed both pubs and restaurants. He has effectively adapted these skills to the confined conditions of a yacht’s galley and rustles up hearty meals whatever the conditions. Food on Meniscus is always the freshest and healthiest food available and is bought, whenever possible, direct from local markets and not from supermarkets or other convenience stores. Depending on availability there is always a range of local and international cuisine. He particularly enjoys serving the local delicacies.
