Daniel Ye 'Captain Dan' ( Captains Team )

    PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer - Scuba Diving since 2006

    I am a cowboy from Kansas. I went in the Army and after I got out went into the corporate world. I had a great corporate job but it was stressful but paid good money. I handled the Caribbean as part of my area. I learned to dive while working in Trinidad. My instructor is one of my best friends. My kids wanted to dive so I became a Divemaster so I could work on the boat, dive and also take care of my kids when they dove.  Then I became a instructor to teach a few friends and at the time not much more. After I became an instructor I loved it and student just keep coming from word of mouth and still the same today. I have lots of dive friends from teaching. I became a captain as another way to get on the water and to share my love for the ocean. I will never go back to the stress of the corporate world.
