You can’t beat experience, and John's got it!

He has nearly 40 years under his weight belt, and has logged about one thousand dives per decade. John has been a certified and active Divemaster almost all that time. He’s been a PADI Instructor for 27yrs and Course Director (Instructor-Trainer) for 17. So in that time he has had the pleasure of working with students from teens to octogenarians, and from construction workers to folk in the entertainment industry. John has issued around fourteen hundred certifications in subjects ranging from wreck and underwater photography to marine life identification and search-and-rescue.

John has worked and dived all-over the world, sometimes working with notable underwater photographers and sometimes with Jacques and his son, Jean-Michel Cousteau. In addition he has become very familiar with beach dives from Monterey to Ensenada and has been tuned in to the ever-changing history of the Southern California charter dive boat industry.

So come on down, take a break from your everyday pressures and learn or dive in our low stress environment. Fun and relaxing – that’s my goal!
