After growing up watching Cousteau and shark movies, Randy had always wanted to dive but thought his fear of sharks would hold him back. Luckily, his fiancé helped him face his fears when they decided to learn how to dive for their honeymoon. 10 years later, not only do they both still enjoy diving, they lead trips to see those misunderstood sharks!
Randy decided to take things a bit further, gathering up his extra classes and certifications until he discovered teaching diving is almost more fun than diving itself! He’s currently one of our nighttime and weekend open water and specialty instructors. He’s also our leadership teacher, teaching larger advanced courses for our Dive Guides, who are following his example to become educators themselves.
In his free time, he is busy with two young boys, one of which has recently become a certified Scuba Ranger!
