I took my first breath underwater 8 years ago in Puerto Vallarta and was hooked. I have met the most amazing people over the years diving and have seen some crazy things underwater. I also found that it is even more exciting to teach new divers and see the excitement in their eyes after an amazing dive. I am a level 8 diver and look forward to learning more about diving and the underwater world.
Ethan has been diving since 2015. He is a level 6 diver and has been a dive pro for 5 years. As a former swimmer, lifeguard, swim instructor, and pool manager, Ethan has spent plenty of time on the water and is always looking for his next trip!
My first job at age 17 was at my local swimming pool, and I’ve enjoyed working around water ever since! I became a diver in 2008 and worked my way to becoming a professional in 2015. Scuba is such an important part of my life. I even proposed to my now wife at the dive shop, where she is also a dive professional.
Growing up in Arizona, Lou did not get a lot of chances to dive. But when he was 14 years old he became certified at scout camp in the Florida Keys. After that, he earned more recreational certifications each year during vacations until he turned 18 and became a professional. As a professional, Lou worked as a scuba instructor in Florida and California for several years. Eventually, he earned a 50-ton Masters (Captains ) license and managed a scuba diving charter in San Diego. Lou is an SSI level 9 diver and has instructed hundreds of students since 2005 on all aspects of diving. He loves inspiring confidence and teaching students self-reliance. He enjoys confined pool classes for new divers just as much as advanced open-water training for seasoned adventurers.
I received my open water certification in 2001 and my Divemaster certification in 2007. I enjoy helping student divers, as well as certified divers, attain skills towards their scuba goals. I initially achieved my certification to dive the reservoirs in Berea, KY with my work as a water plant operator where I helped install a platform in one of the Berea college reservoirs. I’ve enjoyed diving in Florida, the coast of Panama City, Cancun, Cenotes, Bonaire, and Hawaii. I especially enjoyed the Manta Ray night dive off the big island of Hawaii.
