JoshCo 'Josh' ( Course Directors Team )

  • Course Director

    PADI Course Director - Scuba Diving since 2003

    • Sidemount Diver Instructor

    I started diving in 2003, when my father's fire department rescue dive team needed to practice searches for children. From the moment I took my first breath underwater I was hooked. My initial goal when I was in middle school was to become a scuba instructor. Little did I know, I could go further! In 2014 when I took my Instructor Development Course at Rainbow Reef, I knew that I wanted to become a Course Director. From the moment I passed my Instructor Exam, my mission of becoming a Course Director became real. In May of 2018 I received my acceptance to the Course Director Training Course and just a month later I was training with 48 others to become Course Directors. After graduating from the course, I decided that I wanted to take my diving profession full time and began planning to move from Massachusetts to Key Largo.  A few months later my girlfriend, Jaime, french bull dog, Rupert and I moved down to Florida to achieve my dream. 

    I can't wait to share the underwater world with you and hope to see you soon!
