Divemaster

I started diving during college, about three years ago. Since then, I have received my Dive Rescue, Dive Master, and Dive Control Specialist training in Khao Lak, Thailand. I then went to work at a dive shop on the island of Koh Tao, Thailand for three months. From there, I moved to Boston, and having been working at a dive shop as a dive master for over half a year. I love diving and diving in new places. I prefer tropical diving, but am happy to dive in slightly colder waters.

    Good for students and new divers to have fun and work on their buoyancy. Not a whole lot else going on except for man made structure from the surrounding dive sites. Worth a look if you have the time. If not, you aren't missing much.3 years ago
