Who is PT?

TAGGED 20141124-_FOX8576 copyDear Critters,

Please SUBSCRIBE to this blog by email for new posts to be delivered directly to your inbox & FOLLOW Pink Tank Scuba on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube and check out my Media page.

I’m a real-life mermaid, writer, underwater photographer and videographer. According to everyone who knows me, I have a serious case of OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Diving), having done over 900 scuba dives. According to my oncologist, I also have terminal recurrent endometrial cancer (you can read more about this in posts throughout this blog e.g. HERE). But as far as I know, everyone is going to die sometime (I just don’t have the luxury of denial). So we may as well all make the most out of the days we have rather than lament the ones we don’t, right?

I live in Melbourne, Australia and usually dive on the Mornington Peninsula which makes me feel fully alive! I also love to dive in places like the Great Barrier Reef, Vanuatu, Fiji, the Solomon Islands, Indonesia, the Maldives and the Philippines whenever I get the chance.

I have crossed Great Whites ,  Tiger Sharks  and whale sharks off my Bucket List. But I am still desperate to dive with hammerheads, basking sharks and the elusive blanket octopus. I am a qualified Master Diver with specialist training in Underwater Photography, Wreck Diving, Nitrox and Rescue. I also have a certification in Underwater Navigation, but following me underwater would be a huge mistake!

The purpose of this blog is to share the ocean with you and to remind all the critters that read my posts that we ALL have a role to play in keeping the ocean safe and healthy for the well-being of the planet that we must be advocates and custodians of. I also want to encourage you to stay positive and grateful no matter what you may go through in life.  And yes, I most certainly DO dive with a pink tank 😉

Please go to the HOME page of this blog and click on any of the tiles to access the videos, images and stories of my ‘Scuba Vs Tumour’ underwater adventures. I look forward to sharing the ocean with you!

Love and Bubbles,

PT xxx

  1. You are certainly one inspiring mermaid!
    I have just read about you in a 2015 Nature & Health magazine.All the very best with your journey.

    Gail from Sydney.

    • Hi Gail – thank you so much for your kind feedback 🙂 Following that article in Nature and Health I am still going strong – the ocean is a wonderful healer and I continue to defy what has been predicted for me 🙂 Love and bubbles, PT xxx

  2. PT, thanks for a fantastic and motivating talk at our AGM on Tuesday.

    Thank you for being such an inspiring advocate of our local marine environment (even the converted)! Your work has stopped the unnecessary slaughter of gentle inhabitants of our bay, for which we are indebted. Thank you and keep up the great initiative, MCRP

    • Thank you so much for your kind words. It was my absolute pleasure to speak to such a beautiful group of humans! Love and bubbles, PT xxx
