Mustufa 'Mu' ( Instructors Team )
PADI IDC Staff Instructor - Scuba Diving since 2011
Full FaceMask Instructor
Hey Divers!! My name is Mustufa aka Mu. I earned my open water scuba instructor rating in 2015 and currently am an IDC Staff Instructor.
I am a diver, traveler/backpacker, foodie, self-proclaimed chef, hiker, trekker, nature lover, motorcycle enthusiast, adrenaline junkie, to say the least.
I was born and raised in Mumbai, India. I got hooked to scuba diving during my open water certification in Koh Tao, Thailand and moved to the US in 2014 to be a scuba instructor. I am fluent in Hindi, Marathi, Gujarati, and English.
Fun Fact: I have rode my motorcycle on the highest motorable road in the world (18,400 ft).
Upon earning a business degree, I started my career as an investment banker. After 2 years of hating the cubicle and commute, I quit to join the family business. Fast forward 8 years, the business was booming (with the support of partners - dad and brother), and I took a 1-year sabbatical in search of "Pura Vida". 6 years, 3000+ dives, 300+ certifications, and 2 Elite Instructor Awards later, here I am.
PS - I am also a part-time Math tutor.
