Robert is an awesome diver who decided to become an Instructor after years of being pushed into it by his fellow divers, Dive Instructors, and friends. He’s a true educator, passionate about diving, thorough and patient. Intimidating in stature but he’s a true teddy bear when needed. Robert was inspired by some of the best and his drive to make them proud truly shows not only in the pool & classroom, but in every trip he leads.  Originally from Florida, he has been diving since 1993.   He joined The Dive Shop IV in 2019, and we just love him.

What can we say? Her smile and absolute energy are contagious. Add that she was one of the first SSI TekXR divers make Emily a true dive goddess. She loves the ocean so much that she wanted to be married underwater but the guest list was difficult to manage.  Instead she was married to the love of her life, Ed, at the Georgia Aquarium! When she isn’t out on a ship as the Paramedic for the crew, Em travels all over the world diving.  She loves to teach Scuba Rangers, youth and happy people! Emily is also an excellent part of the team when one has stepped on glass at a dive site. Talented, skilled, and top notch at anything educational, Emily can turn your frown upside down and take you to a shallow reef or down to the depths where the mermaids sleep!
