    Diver, adventurer, explorer, TV presenter and Stuntman, Andy Torbet, will be keeping the main stage programme running smoothly as well as delegates entertained.

    Andy joined Aberdeen BSAC at aged 12 as a Snorkel Member, back when diving was forbidden until aged 14. His first dive was in the freezing, near-nil viz waters of North Scotland in a poorly fitting wetsuit and Fenzy ABLJ. The intervening 35 years of diving have seen him on many an adventure. From commanding the Army’s Underwater Bomb Disposal Team and operating as part of the UK’s Maritime Counter-Terrorist Unit, through to freediving under Alaskan ice and carrying out cave diving exploration projects, this diving action man has seemingly done it all. Andy has presented 24 TV series’ on various channels and has written over 300 articles, mostly about technical and cave diving.

    However, his longest running series is his monthly column for BSAC’s SCUBA Magazine on nothing more extreme than snorkelling! Which, incidentally, was meant to be a short nine-month run… 12 years later he’s still going.
