Dwain Gardner, Trip Leader
Dwain took his first scuba class when he was 19 at the University of Missouri in Columbia. After the first day of scuba class, he knew what he wanted to do with his life. For four and a half years, Dwain helped teach a course at the University of Missouri, then continued to teach scuba and managed several dive stores before starting Capt. Nemo’s Dive Shop 36 years ago. Now, 42 years after that first scuba class, Dwain enjoys giving newcomers the same inspiring experience he had in his first lesson, teaching beginning students and helping over 2,000 divers become certified.
Where we are staying
The Anse Chastanet estate encompasses 600 lush tropical acres bordering two soft sand beaches. The resort’s two crystal-clear bays are part of a designated marine reserve protecting miles of colorful coral reefs filled with tropical fish. To make the most of the panoramic views and the refreshing tradewinds, the open-air rooms come with wraparound flower-draped balconies. Guests may also upgrade to a private sanctuary on Jade Mountain, located high on Morne Chastanet, overlooking the Pitons and Caribbean Sea. There, you can expect grand sweeping spaces with your sleeping and living areas. Sanctuaries may also include an infinity-edge pool and/or jacuzzi.
To the travelers who just want to hang out and relax, there are a plethora of extracurricular activities and excursions available to you. Travelers can lie on the beach, get pampered in the resort’s spa, or even mountain bike. There is a casual beachside bar and restaurant, a panoramic hillside lounge, and two treehouses that provide the romantic setting for candlelit dinners.
