Meet the Director Behind Your Dive Training!
Phillip Hetherington is a PADI Course Director currently splitting his time between Sugar Land, Texas and Cozumel, Mexico. Originally from the Northwest of England, Phillip arrived in Texas in the early ‘80’s where he rapidly became involved in scuba diving and then followed his passion for the sport into teaching scuba diving.
Phillip has dived everything from the lakes of the UK and Texas, to pristine dive sites across the globe. When we asked him what his favourite dive was was, his response was, “they are all something unique that make them my favorite.” He is also a busy trip leader, taking groups to places such as Roatan, Cozumel, Fiji, Yap, Palau, Cuba, The Maldives and the Red Sea, just to name a few.
Phillip is also the Owner/Director of Training of Sugar Land Dive Center, a PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Center located in Sugar Land, Texas, and Dive Boutique Cozumel, a growing PADI Dive Store located in Cozumel, Mexico. He also teaches PADI Instructor Courses in Texas and Mexico in addition to Roatan.
When asked why he loves his job as a PADI Course Director, Phillip answered that it gives him “the ability to work in some of the most beautiful locations in the world, allowing passionate individuals who love diving the ability to gain the tools required to successfully work in the field they love.”
Phillip is committed to coming to Roatan several times a year to teach both PADI Instructor Courses and assist with the Divemaster Intern program with Subway Watersports and Roatan Dive Academy.
