    PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor - Scuba Diving since 2016

    Hola, I'm Keeland. Underwater is my favorite place to be - I was always around the ocean growing up, from snorkeling in Okinawa to boating in North Carolina. I graduated with a BS in Marine Biology from UNCW and, shortly after, pursued a career in diving so I could have a closer look at the plants and animals I spent years studying. I started as a divemaster in Aruba, became an instructor in Bonaire, and have been in Key Largo since. At Rainbow Reef, I hope to inspire other divers to appreciate and respect the ocean as much as it deserves. Let's go diving!
