Meet the Black Pearl Scuba Crew​

Black Pearl Scuba is proud to employ some of the most qualified scuba professionals.  Our staff's expertise ranges from Open Water to Tec Diving instructors.  Black Pearl Scuba is dedicated to providing our customers with a fun, safe, and rememberable diving experience.  Our staff of friendly crew is here to help you meet your scuba goals.

We recognize that every individual learns at a different pace and through different techniques.  Our staff members are held to the highest professional standards and are consistently striving to learn new and more effective ways of teaching.

Black Pearl Scuba's success is based on our expert teaching style.  By providing constant reassurance, patience, and a progressive level approach we have taken dive instruction to another level.

Black Pearl Scuba is a firm believer that every instructor should be "raising the bar" by offering training to the best of their ability.  We require our instructors to do equal amounts of diving for themselves, compared with how much they dive for teaching.  This helps our instructors maintain their hands-on experience by constantly being put into real-world challenges.

At Black Pearl Scuba our mission is to give our students their best diving experience.
