Arturo is originally from Puerto Rico and grew up a stones throw from the Caribbean Sea in a family that shared a love and respect for “la mar” Spanish for the sea.
Chef by trade and training, he started diving in the late 90’s and became a dive professional in 2011. He has certified over 400 Open Water divers but especially enjoys teaching specialties like deep diver, navigation, search and recovery, and rescue diver.
