Jackie Porteous

Jackie learned to dive in Prince Rupert in 2008, but didn’t become a “real” diver until moving to North Vancouver in late 2009. She earned her divemaster in 2011. Unfortunately, teaching just “wasn’t her thing”, so she turned her attention instead to underwater photography. Not only do cleanups allow her to scope out potential dive sites for photographic opportunities but it also lets her give back to the dive community by keeping the site clean for the next group of visitors.
