Pete Mesley is the driving force behind Lust4Rust Diving Excursions and Aquatic Adventures. Pete is one of the Southern Hemispheres most experienced Technical Diving Instructors and Explorers, but is not the driving force behind what he does "Its actually getting out there and doing the diving that is most important to me!"
I started specialising in rebreather and technical diving trips about 17 years ago, shortly after I went on a diving holiday with my breather and coudnt get any assistance and support from the dive operator.
On top of that, dive times were limited to 30-50min and the person that I was paired up with had done 10 dives in 4 years. This was not the way I had wanted to spend my diving holiday! So I did something about it - and started Lust4Rust Diving Excursions and Aquatic Adventure .
So ever since then I have been focusing on producing quality dive trips globally, focusing on taking people from experienced Recreational Divers to Highly Experienced Rebreather and Technical Divers to some of the best dive locations on the planet! We have a massive inventory of technical diving equipment in many locations (Truk Lagoon, Solomon Islands, Bikini Atoll, South China Sea, South Pacific etc etc), Oxygen Generation plants, Rebreather tanks, deco tanks, boosters, Helium, Sorb, Manifolded twins etc. All this to reduce any hassles of transporting gear to these destinations.
We really look forward to diving with you in the future! Check out what people have had to say about our trips on this link
