Randy Wright

Store Manager
Independent Instructor Certifier & Platinum Pro Diver

After some 35 years of diving Randy is truly an “old salt” in the diving industry. His favorite places to dive include Indonesia, Palau, Fiji, the oil rigs off the Louisiana coast and almost any rock quarry, river or mud hole deep enough to put his face underwater. When he’s not diving, you’ll find him making music, food, or movies with his friends and family. Randy’s wife Marcia frequently accompanies him on dive trips and the two of them make up the Cajun contingent at The Dive Shop.
