Me teaching Open Water to kids


Divers Alert Network
Scuba diving is fun and easier than you'd expect. Whether you're new to the underwater world, a certified diver looking to improve your skills, or returning to the sea and in need of a refresher, I can help.

I'm a Master Scuba Diver Trainer and IDC Staff Instructor certified by PADI, the largest and most trusted organization of professional dive instructors, and a first aid instructor certified by Divers Alert Network (DAN), the largest association of recreational scuba divers in the world.

I teach photography classes and private lessons in the ocean in Monterey, CA, and at Diver Dan's in Santa Clara, CA. Group classes are on a regular schedule. I can run private lessons anytime, and/or add them onto guided dives.
