Rob from Mesa AZ | Instructor

Raised minutes from Jones beach on Long Island- New York. It wasn´t until I moved to the desert of Arizona that I bacame a diver.

Although I tried scuba a couple of times in my early twenties

I really started diving at 44 years of age and was OW certified March of 2007 .

My last dive was logged on Sept 28th 2013.

I dive locally at Lake Pleasant year round but prefer trips to tropical locations.

I have dived Lakes Mohave, Canyon, Saguaro and Pleasant in Arizona. Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Penasco, Puerto Vallarta, Huatulco, San Carlos and Cancun Mexico. The islands of Bora Bora in Tahiti and Aruba, Catalina California and also Fort Lauderdale Florida.

As a diver I believe in continued education.

I´m always continuing my SCUBA education by taking specialties.

Specialties I’ve taken not in the list include Project AWARE Diver

Certified VIP Tank Inspector

AUP Open Circuit Technician

I completed my PADI Instructor’s Exam November 20th 2011.

I’m looking forward to passing the passion of diving to others.
