Favorite Dive Location:


While I do prefer to dive from a boat, Bonaire has some of the best shore diving. The shore dives are marked with names on yellow stones. I enjoy the freedom to be able to dive from either. There is an abundance of marine life and coral on every dive. The Hilma Hooker is a remarkable shipwreck to visit, but my favorite is Salt Pier.

Most Memorable Dive:

Cozumel, Mexico

It was the last dive of a week long thanksgiving trip in 2016. There was a 7 foot nurse shark hiding from the overzealous divers and photographers, crowding him and kicking up the bottom. I was the last diver in the group and was allowing them to get some distance, as I just hovered and relaxed taking in the last dive of the week. The nurse shark that hid from the others surprised me with a visit by swimming directly underneath me and parallel to me. He was just inches away and I was able to see all of his small markings, scraps and scars. It was a great ending to the trip.
