Bobby Whitten

I fell in love with SCUBA diving in 1995 and my only regret is that I did not start sooner. Once I completed my open water class, I dove as much as possible and continued my education until becoming an instructor in 1999. In 1999 I also became a certified cave-diver and began my career as a technical diver. I have traveled to many locations in the Caribbean, Mexico, Canada, and the US to explore oceans, caves, rivers, and quarries. The aspect I enjoy the most about SCUBA is that it provides many opportunities to meet new people and share the underwater world with them.

My teaching philosophy strives to provide a safe and non-intimidating environment for students to learn the skills and knowledge they will need to become safe divers. I firmly believe that the only bad question is the one that goes unanswered.
