I started my diving experience here with Scuba Stop with my first lake dive with Victor. After that I have been hooked and diving blue water has only made it deeper ingrained in me. I started on the road towards Divemaster because being in the military and public service both taught the fulfillment from teaching others. As such, I enjoy helping each of the instructors with all the courses. As well as, watching and making sure everyone is having an enjoyable but safe time.
