Technical Diver of the Year – Liam Allen

Wednesday, August 28th, 2013
Wednesday 25 September 2013

Liam Allen spent his youth diving in the fresh water lakes and rugged west coast of Ireland. Moving to Sydney in 1997 he made a full time career in the diving industry. With more the 3000 dives to his credit, Liam has extensive experience in a wide variety of deep wreck diving locations across the world from the Norwegian Fjord’s to the Pacific Islands. As a cave diver Liam has also experienced the diverse cave systems throughout Australia, China, Mexico and Florida.

In December 2009 he was part of the GUE China Cave Exploration Project to the South Central China. This project saw some of the first ever cave dives conducted in China in which a number of caves were explored and mapped producing 3D models of the cave system.

In 2011 Liam organized a deep wreck project to dive the USS Atlanta in the Solomon Islands. The objective of the project was to explore and document Atlanta, resting in 130m. In 2012 and 2013 Liam was a member of exploration team responsible for the ongoing documentation of the famous Swedish Battleship, Mars The Magnificent.

He co-authored ‘Beginning With The End In Mind’ a GUE publication on the safe diving practices promoted within the GUE recreational curriculum and has numerous articles and publications to his name.
As a GUE Instructor Evaluator and currently one of Australia’s most active technical diving Instructors and in recognition for his work in technical diving he received the prestigious OZTeK Technical Diver of the Year Award 2013.

Liam teaches throughout Australia and internationally for Global Underwater Explorers (GUE), a non-profit research, exploration and education organization teaching technical diver training programs, which range from entry level through to advanced exploration setting new standards of proficiency.
