Charlie loves diving. He has spent a lot of time diving Florida and our local lakes. His PADI training is extensive and he loves to share his experience with everyone. You will never meet a more patient, calm, and collected scuba instructor.

How much does he love to be underwater? Well, Charlie even proposed to his wife Erin underwater! Charlie had it all planned out.. Everything is magnified 25 percent underwater and you should have seen that diamond ring. It looked huge. Erin couldn’t say no after that!

Charlie started diving at 13 years old with his parents. He spent a semester at sea in the Caribbean after high school, then continued his diving in Florida to become a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor. He now lives in Lakeland with his wife Erin and son Finn.

Charlie heads up our PADI training programs and service department.
