Why Go Pro?

The Love of Diving:
“The benefit is that I’m doing something that I love. I’ve been fortunate to surround myself with individuals who dive and like diving, and who like to share diving with other people who are becoming divers and who are divers. So from that standpoint, you really can’t ask for a much better job.”  - David O'Donnel

Opportunity to Teach:“It’s been a great opportunity for me to not only meet a lot of great people, but to see somebody start out at the very beginning and progress all the way to PADI Master Scuba Diver or Divemaster or even Instructor. So, I mean, that’s obviously very gratifying.”  - Rick Newton Lifestyle:“I have the best job in the world. You know, any job where you can come into work in shorts and T-shirts or casual shirts every day and wear flip-flops – what a wonderful job.”  - Nick Jenny
Self Improvement:“To teach is to learn and I love to do both. Diving provides the opportunity to learn math, biology, physics, history, physiology and communication skills. What other sport really allows you to learn while having so much fun. Plus, diving helps keep me in shape. Try doing that with an office job.”  - Ted Moreta
Enjoy Outdoor Activities:“It’s the opportunity to be outdoors, to be one with nature. To experience an element not originally intended for people. The things you get to see underwater are amazing. I just like to feel weightless and free to move as I wish. My office is the ocean. All you desk-dwelling workers out there – eat your hearts out. You want to be me!”  - Jason Hannah
A Passion to Care for the Environment: Many instructors cite their first dive as a life changing experience. For this reason, many are very dedicated to sharing that experience with others and to helping to preserve that experience for future generations. They become actively involved in activities such as underwater cleanups, coral restoration projects and helping to educate people, especially children, about the environment.
