Instructor Goal

As your instructor, my goal is to share years of diving experiences with students seeking Open Water through Divemaster and specialty course certifications as well as cave and technical diving certifications. I offer relaxed, student-focused classes. Student-instructor ratios are usually 4:1 (smaller for some courses) so you receive the best possible instruction. Students complete a course feeling confident in their abilities.
