What’s up! My name is Rico and I’m your next Scuba Instructor. I’ve been diving for over 10 years and passionate about introducing new divers to the underwater world.

My scuba instruction is catered to private lessons for individuals or groups.  Because I ONLY teach private and semi-private groups of students, there is no set time or schedule that you are required to follow.  You are able to complete your certification as quickly as possible or at any speed you choose.

A lot of my students are busy professionals with limited available free time.  My flexible schedule caters to your needs.  I can even come to your house or pool to teach if requested. Whether you are a group of family members or just friends, you will receive quality, personal attention resulting in you becoming a safe and educated diver.

If you or someone in your group has any fears or concerns about learning to scuba dive, I specialize in addressing such issues.  Teaching children and young adults is another one of my specialties.  Children as young as 10 can learn to scuba dive today.  It is so gratifying to watch the excitement in their eyes as they fall in love with the sport as I did many years ago. My own child is an avid diver.

My scuba instruction includes Open Water Diver, Advanced Open Water Diver, Nitrox/Enriched Air Diver, Rescue Diver, Specialty courses, Dive Master and much more.

PADI offers the Open Water Diver and Advanced Open Water Diver classes via eLearning which gives you even more flexibility in completing your training.  You can complete the classroom work for these classes all online.  Once completed, then I conduct your pool and/or dive instruction.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you get started diving. The benefit from going with an independent instructor such as myself is that I can be flexible in time and location. We can schedule training according to your availability and I can also deliver majority of training in your own pool if you have one. Contact me today.
