Chi Felton is a TDI and PADI technical diving instructor originally from the UK, and is currently running a technical diving facility in Bunaken National Park, Indonesia.
She did her first dive in Bali in 2014, and then went on to complete her recreational dive training in the Red Sea and the UK. In 2015 she left London to dive full time and pursue technical diving as a career, first beginning her Divemaster and technical dive training in the Maldives and Thailand, then going back to Europe to complete her instructor development course. Since then she has lived in Bali, Sri Lanka, Germany and North Sulawesi working as a dive instructor and resort manager, and eventually qualified as a technical instructor in 2017.
B.D. (before diving), Chi studied Criminolgy and Sociology at Westminster university and worked mostly in sales for seven years, her most recent non-diving occupation being an international luxury property consultant at A&K in Charing Cross.
Her current role in Indonesia has evolved from working as a dive centre consultant to setting up a technical dive centre based at the luxury dive resort Bunaken Oasis. Chi continues her training constantly, is always looking to improve her skills and extend her limits, and is now working on a deep water exploration project in North Sulawesi, while spending her spare time as a dive travel and technical diving consultant.
