Arturo is one of our night and weekend dive instructors, specialty instructors, and trip leaders.
Originally from Puerto Rico, he grew up a stone’s throw from the Caribbean Sea in a family that shared a love and respect for “la mar”. Chef by trade and training, he started diving in the late ’90s 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. Recently, he has also become certified in teaching SSI’s extended range courses.
He enjoys a very active lifestyle with his wife Jessica and son Marco and can often be found wrestling free weights, truck tires, and ropes at the local cross-fit facility.
