You think you love the water? But you merely adopted the water; I was born in it, moulded by it. I didn't sea the shore until I was already a man. By virtue of my parents I started my scuba journey when I was a ripe 4 years old. I love diving where it is warm and pretty and there is plenty of aquatic life to see. My joy with scuba diving comes with teaching new and experienced divers alike, and getting in the occasional dive with my forever dive buddy, Lisa.

Hey there, I'm Greg, but my friends call me Gregalodon. I have been diving since 2012 and am a PADI MSDT Instructor. I enjoy helping people fulfill their dream of learning how to scuba dive. My favorite diving is offshore wreck dives and hunting for Megalodon shark teeth. Hands down, my favorite dive vacation is Bonaire. Diving is life; anything else is a surface interval!!

Hi, hey, hello! I'm Emily :)

I've been diving since 2020 and am currently a dive master candidate and future mermaid instructor!

My favorite things to do while diving are identifying fish, hunting for shark teeth, and goofing off :P

When I'm not in the water, I enjoy concerts, reading, drawing, spoiling my cats, and playing video games~

Hi, I'm Gabriel! I started diving in 2020 and became the senior service tech in 2021. My favorite dives that I enjoy are warm water ones with good friends who like to share adventures. I like to be a Jack-of-all-trades adventurer and enjoy most all outdoor high-adventure activities. Play safe, play hard, and share the fun!

I learned to dive in the Spring of 2023. I'm excited to expand on my experiences in diving and working on dive equipment. I've enjoyed doing high-adventure activities such as ropes courses and white water tubing, and I also enjoy helping people achieve their goals of trying new things and getting new experiences.

I started officially diving in 2010. I became a dive master in 2013 then an instructor in 2018. I especially enjoy wreck and cave diving. I hope we can share some diving adventures together.

Fun fact: Did you know there are more planes at the bottom of the ocean than there are submarines in the sky?
