Dean Gerdez

Master Instructor

Dean became an Instructor in 2012, but you will be so comfortable that you will feel that he has been teaching forever. He has been diving for over sixteen years. His students love him and keep coming back to dive with him over and over again. He spent a lot of time diving (and living) in Thailand and the Philippines, and can tell you all about their dive sites! He can also teach the PADI Sidemount Course.

Dana Roman

Dana is our newest Instructor, and our most adventurous. She is an avid herpetologist and her goal is to see Sea Dragons somewhere other than at an aquarium. Students love to take classes from Dana and end up friends for life!
