Introducing our new Chef

may17c5 may17c6

It’s us great pleasure to have Jamie Morton as a new member of El Galleon’s kitchen. Jamie has brought a wealth of knowledge and experience with him and has worked and lectured in some amazing places and for some amazing people.

From his recent job in PNG working at the Royal Papua Yacht Club and being a celebrity chef for TV shows and catered for many events not only in PNG but also Australia and New Zealand where he worked and lectured in the NZ of culinary arts, celebrity chef and participated in five “Battle of Chefs” New Zealand TV episodes. In total there were around 50 of the best chefs in NZ who participated and Jamie came 2nd place. Involved in various restaurant consultancy including “Taste by Design Catering” an outside catering company who catered for weddings and top clients such as Mick Jagger & Rolling Stones, Stevie Nicks, UB40, Justin Timberlake and their crews.

We are very excited to have Jamie and we know you will too… his food is fun and it tastes only how you would expect from a top chef who is passionate about his cooking. As Jamie is a very keen diver, you’ll see a lot of him around the dive shop when he’s not in the kitchen.

E-IDC at Asia Divers

Exams done and dusted – they all passed with flying colors!


A great party was had to celebrate our candidates who all have now become New PADI Instructors. Congratulations go to Alain, Nick and Yann for a job very well done. Some of our candidates even had the best scores attainable during the IE and scored a flat 5 points on all skills and presentations! Wow !


Thanks to the entire team at Asia Divers for the great support during the IDC and especially to Louise and Brad for being the “notorious” students/ divemasters on practice sessions and workshops 😉

We made a short video trailer to re-live the experience – have a look here:
