Vance ( Instructors Team )
PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer - Scuba Diving since 1987
Full FaceMask Instructor
Vance has been connected to the ocean in some way since his youth growing up in San Diego. Being a surfer and skin diver, scuba diving was a natural next step, which he took in 1987 while assigned on Guam with the United States Air Force. Throughout the next 30 years, Vance was able to continue his dive training up through Dive Master and diving in locations from Florida and California to Hawaii, Tahiti, Roatan and Utila. After retiring from the United States Air Force after 30 years of active duty, Vance came to Key Largo in 2016 to become a Scuba Instructor and to join the Rainbow Reef Dive Center Management Team.
