Divemaster / Boat Captain
I am loving this scuba journey I’ve been on over the past few years. I’ve managed to conquer a ton of self-limiting beliefs, and I’ve met a lot of very cool people along the way.
I remember being four years old and watching Jacques Cousteau on TV. I was enamored by the possibility of seeing the animals he filmed underwater, and I have no idea why I waited fifty years to finally take up scuba.
I completed my Open Water certification in February 2000 at Whytecliff Park in West Vancouver. It was pretty surreal lying on the surface in my drysuit, looking up and watching the snow fall down around me. Since then I’ve logged around 500 cold water dives, along with a handful of warm ones in Cozumel.
I have to say, I prefer cold water diving. The life in our ocean is unique and incredible, and that makes all of the challenges of scuba diving in Vancouver worth it.
I am working towards completing my PADI Instructor Development Course in March.
Join me for a shore dive, or we can take the boat out to some of the amazing dive sites in Howe Sound. Just be prepared to debrief at the pub afterwards.
