Erik started diving at a young age ,and has been doing it ever since. He has thousands of safe dives in just about every environment you can imagine. From the rough North Sea, Canadian Great Lakes, researching Great White Sharks in Australia, cave diving in Mexico and Central Florida and every reef in between.

His years of experience as as a field biologist (with postgraduate studies in environmental law and environmental risk assessment/toxicology), bring diving education to a whole new level.

Erik's main focus is on advanced diver training. Courses such as cave, sidemount and advanced nitrox are his specialty. However, he still enjoys teaching brand new divers during their open water diver course or even Discover Scuba Diving participants!

General Manager, PR

Sandra Amaya

Certified since: 2014

Favorite Site: Anything with beautiful fish!

Sandra will most likely be the first person you will meet at the shop. She has years of experience working in the entertainment industry as an artist manager (yes, you have heard of most of them) and record label manager.

With a degree in International Business, it is quite safe to say that Sandra is the brains of this operation!

Although she is a new diver, don’t let that fool you! She has more knowledge about diving than a lot of instructors out there.

Most awesome dog in the history of the world!

Piggy

Piggy is the coolest dog ever! If you've met her, then you know. If you haven't, then you're totally missing out. She is such a great dog that we believe that she might be a direct descendant of Anubis. She loves to play, and she loves to swim and run!
