I’ve dived the Monterey, Marin, Sonoma, Mendocino Coast, Cordell Banks and the Farallones, Pt. Arena Rock, Mendo pinncacles, love Ft. Bragg, Channel Islands, Canada, Washington, Costa Rica. Also been to many Carribean sites, would go again, Florida, Grand Cayman ,Cozumel, Mexico (Mayan Riviera).
Have yet to dive Asia, South Pacific, and I am really looking forward to doing that some day.
I’m a PADI IDC Staff Instructor, lots of specialties, I dive for fun and food as well as still teach private lessons from time to time. I also teach EFR First Aid / CPR; and am a current Emergency Medical Technician.
I hold a 100 Ton USCG Near Coastal license, Unlimited RADAR endorsement, and have experience on fishing, crabbing, diving, dinner / dance, paddle wheel, ferry, and high speed catamaran boats to 165’ and 720 passengers. (and I am looking for a career position)
I take two divers / fisher(wo)men in a small boat out to dive / fish our waters in the northern SF Bay Area, so check my website out (link above or at www.captainjacks.net) and if you are interested maybe we can set something up.
I also have a very small sort of private dive club, http://www.gorilladiver.net that might be fun for you to visit.
I’m happy to dive with beginners as well as seasoned divers.
