Ted is a PADI certified Dive Master who has been in and around water for most of his life. Ted started his “Dive obsession “ on the island of St Martin in the Caribbean. It was an experience unlike any he had before !
Since then, he has been diving all along the East coast of the Unites States and to several Caribbean Islands. He has had the Privilege of diving with some of the best Divers, Dive Masters and Instructors in this sport ! They have taught him a great deal along the way. He enjoys many types of diving. Everything from diving off a beach looking for antique bottles in shallow water, to very deep wreck diving off a boat looking for artifacts. He also likes to do underwater photography . One of the most Rewarding moments for him as a Dive Master is coming up from a dive with a new diver, one that he helped to train, and hearing “ WOW, what a dive that was” ! Ted is a Die Maker by trade that manufactures specialized tooling to bond plastics. As such, he really enjoys engineering and making things by hand .
He truly feels that the staff at Swim And Scuba has much that they are willing to teach you , IF YOU are willing to learn!
