Jake H ( Instructors Team )
PADI IDC Staff Instructor - Scuba Diving since 2012
Full FaceMask Instructor
Jake began his diving career in a cold quarry in central Virginia at 14 years old. He dove often while traveling with friends and family during high school, and attended college at Miami University (the real Miami) in Oxford, Ohio. After leaving college, Jake decided to pursue a dream of living on the water and teaching SCUBA in the Florida Keys. Jake was originally an intern with Rainbow Reef, and after seven months was hired as a full time staff member. Since then Jake has become a PADI MSDT and recently went back to the Career Development Center to earn the title of PADI IDC Staff Instructor. Jake's favorite style of diving is wreck diving and he is a PADI Tec 40 CCR diver on the O2ptima rebreather.
