Richard Leckie, Instructor & Guide


For as long as I can remember I have been addicted to watching wildlife. Growing up I was inspired by nature documentaries to travel the world in order to see nature at its best. For a long time this didn't happen until I had a career change and became a diver. The job has taken me to some of the most amazing places that I've ever been and I have seen animals at their best in their natural environment. I have no intention of stopping as there are still many places I want to visit and Iceland is close to the top of the list.
