Reef Divers Manager Joe is originally from Michigan and grew up in Georgia. He learned to dive in Puerto Rico while serving in the US Navy in 1997. Joe immediately fell in love with the sport and began his journey as a dive professional.

He loves exploring the underwater world with the rEvo rebreather as it brings him to a Zen-like state watching the creatures of the sea live their lives as he floats by.
Barbie from Wingham, Ontario, Canada, began diving when she was 17 – and a lady NEVER gives away her age by telling you what year that was. She found the idea of diving appealing as an adventure sport, which it certainly was in Lake Huron where she gained her experience. Barbie especially enjoys mornings on the coral reefs, looking for unusual fish behaviors not often seen. And she was honored by the Cayman Islands Tourism Association for being the Watersports’ Employee of 2019.
Frankie comes from Bungay, England, and made her first dive in 2004. She got certified so she could help collect data while working with a coral reef restoration project in Fiji.

If she could, she would teach the entire world to dive just to make everyone happier.

Jucky, from Braga, Portugal, exchanged the IT world for the SCUBA world in 2012, when he traded in a desk and four walls for the deep blue sea.
