Andre 'Maui' ( Instructors Team )

  • Instructor

    PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor - Scuba Diving since 2005

    • Sidemount Diver Instructor

    • Full FaceMask Instructor

    I was Texas born, but Florida raised. I have been diving since I was 15. My mom and I loved it so much we both went on and got our instructor ratings and opened up a small certification company. I have also been a school teacher, English instructor overseas, stock broker, and entertainment security. I have been teaching scuba for 9 years and love trying out new locations, meeting new people, and learning new specialties. My hope one day is I can teach my dog to dive and take her with me everywhere.
