James Riley

Training Director

James is the Training Director at Paragon Dive Group. In addition to working with our other instructors, James teaches divers all the way from taking their first breaths underwater into the technical, rebreather and professional worlds.

As a diver, James has been all over the world, diving open ocean, wrecks and caves. He is also an accomplished underwater photographer. When he is not diving, James enjoys spending time with his wife, daughters and grandchildren while also running an IT consulting business and flying airplanes for a number of non-profit organizations.
