Philip Hetherington PADI CD# 66829

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. If you ask him what is his favorite dive site, he will say 

“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 to name just a few.

Phillip is also the Owner/Director of Training of Sugar Land Dive Center, a PADI 5 Star IDC 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. One thing I love about my job as a PADI Course Director is “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.
