Learning to dive gave me the opportunity to see all sorts of incredible, new sights and sounds. One of my favorites is the excitement on a student’s face when they experience the undersea world for the first time.

Mike Welch is one of our night and weekend dive instructors as well as a specialty instructor. While new to the Gypsy family, he’s certified over a hundred Raleigh divers. He grew up on the intracoastal waterways in Florida and enjoys just about anything on, and under, the water. His mantra is, “If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right.”
