My experience and genuine wish as an instructor is to enrich the knowledge of new and experienced divers. I was born in Cienfuegos City Cuba, bathed by the Caribbean Sea, and from an early age I was passionate about the sea. It’s one of the greatest wonders of the world, stories about pirates who had been there in the eighteenth century and sunken treasure at the bottom of the sea, made my imagination run wild. I always had a mask and snorkel in hand to find treasure but never did, until the day I realized that the real treasure was in front of me the entire time. The coral reef and it’s wonderful colors and shapes, whimsical plants, and tons of different animals, now that a treasure every human should experience.

With substantial experience diving in Cuba and the USA, I understand that the needs of divers varies greatly, I deliver a personalized service and look forward to getting to know you!
