Meet Our Scuba Diving Sodwana Bay Family

 Eve Marshall - Co Owner & Partner, Tech diving Instructor & Instructor Trainer for CMAS, RAID instructorEve Marshall

I'm originally from the UK and my travels bought me to Sodwana Bay where I met Peter Timm.  Peter and Rolleen were the co-founders of Triton.  Peter and I became engaged but he died in a tragic diving accident in 2014, Rolleen and I decided to try and keep going in his memory and we have been running Triton together ever since.

My passion is firstly my child then underwater photography and technical diving, I was lucky to be taught tech diving by Peter and I was the first and I think only lady now to ever have seen a coelacanth.  For me leading dives is my absolute favourite, I enjoy showing clients all the special spots and I love teaching my interns about the underwater world and seeing them evolve into good diving instructors makes me proud every time.  All of our CMAS instructors have been trained here at Triton which I think is probably unique.  My son, Rocco is nearly 3 and already a water baby and I can't wait to show him what's beneath the waves.  

If I were a sea creature I would be a humpback whale, every time I witness these creature and their calves I realize how insignificant we really are and it humbles me beyond belief.

If I was a sea creature I would be a dolphin.

 

 

 

Rocco William Marshall - water baby

Howsit!  I am the youngest in our crew.  My first word ever was fish and I love chilling on the beach while my mom works.  I want to be a rockstar, pro-surfer and of course a deep diver like my mom.  If I were a sea creature my mom says I would be a baby octopuss grabbing everything and all over the place!  

 

 

Karl Prinsloo - Skipper, instructor, dive master

Karl is a man of few words, he has travelled all over the planet and worked in Egypt, Mozambique and the British Virgin Islands until Hurrican Irma decimated the islands and Karl came home to Sodwana Bay.  We welcomed him to our team and know that we are in the safest hands when he takes us through the surf.

If I were a sea creature I would be an Orca because they look out for their families. 

 

 

 

 

 

Keiron Harrisson - Divemaster intern and Lodge handyman & mechanic

A young man of many talents started at Triton as an intern and ended up as a permanent staff member.  Keiron services dive gear, fills cylinders, maintains Triton's vehicles, and handles general maintenance problems.  His problem solving ability has made him a valuable team member.

If I were a sea creature I would be a seahorse because everybody talks about me but you can never find me.
