SCUBA Guiding & Instruction
I guide groups and individual divers throughout the Salish Sea, and occasionally lead trips father afield as well.
As a PADI Master SCUBA Diver Trainer (MSDT #458657) I teach over twenty PADI courses, from Open Water Diver to Divemaster and a variety of specialties.
As an EFR Instructor I also teach BLS/CPR/AED/First Aid for Adults and Children, and I'm a NOLS Wilderness First Responder (with endorsements for EPI and NARCAN) and an Emergency Oxygen Provider.
Recent trips include the Philippines and the Red Sea, and I am currently gearing up for Indonesia in 2024. I'm especially passionate about the less "charismatic" animals, teaching buoyancy as a matter of conservation in sensitive areas, and bringing more women into cold water diving!
(And a PSA to students: Only complete dorks wear their mask on their forehead like this!
Please do as I say, not as I do for the 'gram...)
