Matthew is about as certified as it comes being our Training Director. He loves every moment of bringing new divers into the sport and providing people the opportunity to experience the underwater world. With a passport filled with stamps like Indiana Jones and getting over 100+ Open Water dives in a year, he dives every moment possible with groups of people to go with him in tow.  If there is a puddle deep enough he will likely try to dive it and has special interest in Deep, Wreck, and Technical Diving. “Diving is the only place you can be weightless on Earth so if you can’t afford to join the astronaut program then join me in diving the other 71% of Earth that is water and most people never see!”
