Yvonne Press has worked as a dive professional since 2010, and is now a technical instructor trainer at Two Fish Tech in Indonesia. Initially guiding and teaching full time in Scotland, after four years she moved to warmer waters including the Red Sea, Thailand and Indonesia, where she is still based. The discovery of untouched WWII wrecks lying in 40 to 60 meters off Scotland's east coast started Yvonne's journey into technical diving, and she became a TDI and PADI TecRec instructor in 2015. In 2016, Yvonne became southeast Asia's first female TDI instructor trainer. She now teaches from a variety of locations in Indonesia, including Bali and Bunaken, North Sulawesi. Most recently, she has been exploring potential tech diving sites in South Lombok.
