About Us

Dave Coyle

As a young boy, Dave used to accompany his dad on his lobster boat. He credits those times as having helped to instill in him a love of the water. In 2003, he fulfilled a life-long dream of becoming a SCUBA diver and what started off as a hobby quickly became his passion. Additional certifications soon followed and he worked his way up to be an Advanced Open Water Instructor. When he became the owner of Aquatic Specialties in January of 2014, he became one of those lucky people who can turn a favorite pastime into a career. When asked what he loves most about diving and certifying new divers, he answers, “SCUBA diving allows you to explore another world without leaving this one.” Dave loves to certify new divers and is in the water just about every weekend, year-round. Dave & his wife live in Manchester, NH and also have a cottage on Lake Winnisquam.
Robin Reiner

Robin was certified in open water scuba in 2018. She has a background in Marketing and Biology and a Masters in Science Education. Although she is no longer teaching in schools, she enjoys sharing her love and knowledge of nature with others and is now a Dive Master. She looks forward to teaching the SSI Ecology Courses at the shop soon. In addition to being Advanced Open Water, she has a certification in Coral Restoration from the Cozumel Coral Restoration Program as well as experience assisting other biologists in Cozumel with Turtle Preservation. When not working at the dive shop she enjoys traveling, walks with her Cavachon Teddy, kayaking, photography, and crafts. Robin is very proud of her two children: Emily, 23, who is also a Biologist working in Animal Husbandry at Ripley's Aquarium in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Her son, Jeff, age 27, is an international web developer living in Berlin, Germany.
