Dive Instructors:

Leif Shaver, PADI Instructor

“I did my first dive in 2000 off a live-aboard sailboat on the Great Barrier Reef. That changed everything! Now that I’m an instructor, I get to help others have that same moment of absolute wonder when they see the undersea world for the first time. As an ex-engineer I love the more technical aspects of diving but it’s the wildlife that makes it beautiful and the people who make it fun.”

 

Kathy Shupe, PADI Divemaster

“My first diving was back in the days before the invention of the BCD! After many years away from it, I got certified in 2001 and never looked back. As an animal lover, I’m always happy to see all my fishy friends. And having a great dive destination like Port Royal right out the front door is fantastic.”
