Naomi van der Colff

Position on committee: Dive Officer (previous year Secretary)

What are you looking forward to about being on the committee?: I have never been the dive officer; having a different position, different point of view

How did you hear about OMSAC/come to join OMSAC? Carel worked at OM and did a DSD back in 2007

How long have you been a member? Since 2008

What is your current scuba qualification? Rescue

What do you do when you’re not diving? Do books and feed the cats

What is your favourite Cape dive site and why? I don’t really have a favourite, all of the sea but shallow sites. Not a deep diver.

What’s your idea of the best-ever dive buddy? Someone that does not loose me but can navigate

What is your bucket list dive site? All the tropical dive destinations that we have not been before

What do you wish you knew when you started diving that you learnt the hard way or that you know now? Not to be so scared of doing something new, jump in. I have met so many people and are making amazing memories.
