Luis completed his Open Water Training through NASDS (now SSI) at the age of 17 off the beaches of Southern California and the Channel Islands. After a brief hiatus from diving to raise his young kids (now OW certified), Luis took up his passion for SCUBA diving again and has since logged over 2000 dives. His diving experiences have taken him all over the world to dive trips in Truk Lagoon in Micronesia, Sri Lanka, Bali, Corfu, South Korea, and the Caribbean Islands. His favorite dive destination is Bonaire, which he has visited several times with his wife and family. In the past year, Luis became an SSI Dive Professional by completing the SSI Dive Master training through Aquatic Specialties. Luis has been diving the New England waters for over 30 years and as a Dive Guide for Aquatic Specialties enjoys introducing local divers to the wonders that New England has to offer.
