Our Scuba Diving Instructors
Finding experienced & knowledgeable Raleigh Scuba Diving Instructors is far more essential to your diving experience than the agency they teach with. While the certifying agencies set the "standards" of training (meaning what skills we teach & how we teach them), having a thorough & knowledgeable teacher makes all the difference. The whole purpose of training is learning & showing mastery of your underwater skills. Our Raleigh Scuba instructors have been personally vetted and evaluated by each other to ensure we not only adhere to agency standards, but go above & beyond with our level of training & attention. Each of our instructors have pledged to go above & beyond to help you fine tune your dive skills, your buoyancy and share our knowledge with you. Each training dive we conduct is an evaluation of our students. Corrections, advice or even tips to be a better diver are all part of our service to you. Education, not certifications is not just a fancy slogan; it's our core mission.
Our instructors are certified to teach thru the following certifying agencies. We are required to carry teaching insurance to maintain our teaching credentials and are subject to rigorous Q&A questionnaires completed by previous students.

David has been diving for over 10 years with several thousand dives under his belt. He loves teaching others anything from Open Water diver to Public Safety diving. People always say he has gills because of his insanely low air consumption (he doesn't, we've checked). Lets go diving!
Dan finished his open water certification in Fayetteville, NC in 2019. He is the proud father of an underwater ninja acrobat who decided to do underwater somersaults shortly after certification. That lead to Dan becoming an instructor to teach others "what not to do".
Kenneth has been diving since 2017 and received his open water certification in Asheville, NC. He has a fantastic singing voice (on the surface, not so much under water) and loves introducing new divers to the amazing world underwater.
Steven became certified in 2018 in Panama and became an instructor in 2021. Since then he has also gone diving in the Mediterranean and all around the Caribbean. He was out diving once in the Cayman Islands when he heard this beautiful singing... Turns out it was just a choral reef!
