What was the inspiration to start or run this business? I’ve been diving for over 10 years and passionate about introducing new divers to the underwater world. I stumbled upon diving during vacation one year and have been hooked every since. I wish to impart the same feeling to others that have never thought about diving or trying something different.
What do you love most about your job? Seeing the excitement on peoples faces when they take their first breath underwater and they complete their training as a confident and safe diver who has accomplished a big feat.
