Gavin ( Captains Team )
PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor - Scuba Diving since 1992
I began diving at the age of 15 after developing a fascination with sharks. After completing my open water certification, I fell in love with diving and completed my AOW, EFR & Rescue all in the same summer @ 16.
I joined The Marine Corps @ 17 and served 8 years. I then attended Commercial Diving school in California. I worked both inland and off shore as a tender/ diver & Advanced dive medic. I then returned home to southern Illinois and became a Paramedic. Life slowed down enough to take my Divemaster course in 2003.
In late 2013 I was able to finally become a SCUBA Instructor and move to the Keys! While working as an Instructor/ Divemaster/ 1st Mate, I knew I wasn't going back to snow!
So I started driving these beautiful boats and stayed here!
