Bio & Picture Coming Soon
Hello, my name is Julie Hopkins. Scuba is tons of fun. A few friends from work suggested a discover scuba class because I was headed to Mexico in a few weeks for vacation. I had been snorkeling for years, but was ready to do something new. Sandi Zoch taught that class, and I was hooked. Love it! Being a Divemaster gives me the opportunity to do something that love, continue to learn new things and keep others safe while they are learning to dive. Diving can help build confidence and make new friends. Come join us to learn something new.
I am a nature lover and earth/environment advocate Since I was young boy I dreamt of learning to dive and live the amazing world that Jaques Custeau shared through his series.. life took its turns and delayed my learning. My son became interested in the underwater world and it opened the opportunity to fulfill my dream and we both took the first steps and we were instantly hooked. Bill Nash was our instructor and he inspired the sense of privilege and respect for diving. We experienced in real life the devastation of the Great Reef Barrier on a diving trip and also the destruction and pollution of Both the Poles. This became the main goal for me to use diving as a teaching tool of how we affect the environment and the effect we have with the choices we make. I hope to inspire others to make changes so that we can preserve the underwater world and keep our waters pristine.
