Wreck and Cave was started in 2005 by Rich Walker. Rich is a full-time instructor with Global Underwater Explorers . Before that he was a scientist studying how blood flows around the body. Rich’s knowledge of physiology and physics gives him a unique position as a diving instructor.
Rich has been diving since 1991. He is a wreck diver and spends most of his spare time diving the wrecks around the UK. More recently he has become fascinated by the wartime wrecks around the Norwegian coast. You’ll usually see Rich heading to Norway at least once a year.
Rich Walker only teaches courses from Global Underwater Explorers. GUE classes cover buoyancy, trim, equipment configuration, nitrox, oxygen, trimix, helium, decompression, teamwork and a host of other important topics.
