John D 'JD' ( Instructors Team )
PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer - Scuba Diving since 2008
Full FaceMask Instructor
I moved to Key Largo from Connecticut. I started my diving off of Cape Cod, Massachusetts where I quickly became hooked! From there I started to look in to diving more which brought me to Tulum, Mexico in 2016 where I worked as a intern for a conservation group called GVI we participated in reef surveys and Fish ID's daily. That is also where I earned my rescue diver certification which was my toughest course that took me 7 days to complete in order to make me feel like a confident rescue diver, my instructor and I became very close through that which is what made me want to become a Instructor as well. After I traveled through Mexico for a bit visiting some Cenote's, and Cozumel. I then went to the Bay Islands, of Honduras where I became a dive master and am now currently an instructor, four years ago I moved to Key Largo where I work doing what I love every day of the year.
