Raised in southern Louisiana, water sports were always a big part of Tara’s life. She obtained her Padi Open Water & Advanced certification in 2010 while her husband was stationed in Monterey, California.
In 2012, while working as a paramedic back home in Louisiana, she joined a local rescue dive team, and received Public Safety and Dive Master rating as a result. Following this, she headed down to Key Largo, Fl to continue her career, and earn her Instructor rating with Rainbow Reef.
She returned to her home shop and got busy teaching. Once she had some experience, she spent the next year traveling as a freelance instructor teaching in the Dominican Republic, Gran Canarias, Spain, several islands in Thailand, and Safaga Egypt, before returning to the United States to focus on furthering her dive career. She has since earned her IDC Staff and hopes to continue on the path to Course Director with Bubbles or Not.

Rob has been diving since old enough to certify and has been around diving all his life joining his father on many dive charters as help on the boat before he was able to dive through certification, diving in the warm waters of Hawaii through dry suit diving in the St Lawrence River on the wreck of the Robert Gaskin to lake and quarry diving in Maryland and Georgia.
Rob is a certified Dive Master and is currently working on his Instructor certification, he is also an avid snowboarder having been based on Colorado for the past few years despite his Hawaiian roots and more recent dive management training in Grand Cayman.
I’ve always loved the ocean and all marine life. I started diving in Turks and Caicos in 2008, and dove every chance I got on family vacations. I got serious into diving in 2016 when i finally became certified. From there the goal was to become a professional. I went from open water certified to becoming an instructor as fast as i could, with some technical training in between. I became a certified PADI instructor in 2017 while spending some time in Key Largo. My favorite dives are wreck dives, night dives, and shark dives. My favorite dive spots are in Key Largo, Panama, and Turks and Caicos.
I took my first breath underwater about 9 years ago. I earned my open water certification in a quarry, but after I moved here, I’ve been diving in the springs in Florida, Cozumel, Curacao, and Kay Largo – and a few lakes and quarries. I’ve been fortunate to dive with sharks, manta rays, turtles, eels, whale sharks, seahorses, and more fish than I can list. I like blue water diving, but I also enjoy checking out wrecks and wouldn’t pass up a chance to check out a new dive site. I hope I can pass on my love of diving to students – teaching them not only the basic skills but also a passion for adventure.
Kevin has been diving since 1990. Although much more comfortable in warm Caribbean waters, Kevin has spent much of his diving career in the kelp beds off Santa Barbara, California. Kevin’s flexible schedule as a Cloud Security Engineer affords him the flexible time to travel and teach courses during off-peak times during the week.
