About sciDIVE

What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?

sciDIVERS offers science-oriented scuba diving vacations in Key Largo, Florida, sciDIVERS redefines recreational diving by combining modern scientific techniques with team building, luxury accommodations, and a life long open water PADI certification, providing a meaningful well rounded experience. sciDIVERS is leading a shift in how recreational divers should be interacting with the oceanic ecosystems around the world. Using standardized methods developed by a nonprofit organization called REEF, our citizen scientist vacationers are provided guidance, education and data collection tools to conduct population studies on the local reefs. The collected data is used as references for scientists publishing their works as well as local fisheries management policy-making. sciDIVERS gives every dive a purpose.

What was the inspiration to start or run this business?

Prior to sciDIVERS, I always felt that every recreational dive I had participated in felt like a missed opportunity. Having dived in many parts of the world, I recognized my more meaningful dives included personal guidance and valuable information about the local area and marine life. I spent two weeks on an island in Belize with Boston University and 6 weeks on an island in Malaysia earning my Divemaster Certification, enhanced drastically by the organization, communication and purpose provided. I now understand that great day of diving isn't complete without collecting and sharing this crucial data. With commercial fishing at an all-time high along with our oceans acidifying and warming, sciDIVERS gives us the chance to get all hands on deck and be part of the solution.

What do you love most about your job?

The best thing about my job with sciDIVERS is the ability to combine my love of people, teaching, diving, and VACATIONS! With friendly hosts, knowledgeable instructors and experienced guides, I get to create wonderful vacation experiences and unforgettable days of diving. My enjoyment comes from watching customers' eyes light up with understanding as their purpose for scuba diving shifts while learning more about the animals they are seeing in our subsurface alien planet we like to call the ocean.

What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?

I brought a customer out who had only been snorkeling before and had little to no knowledge about coral reefs. By the end of our trip, he was identifying bridal gobies, wrasse, various parrotfish species and more! The best reaction is the boost in self-confidence that is palpable by all participants. I know I'm doing what I was meant to do when I see our customers making new friends, collaborating and problem solving as part of a field research team. The most fulfilling reaction is our customers realizing they are part of something bigger and are contributing to our global oceanic and atmospheric data while testing their limits and most of all having fun.
