About Scubadivingjim

Who is Scubadivingjim


Hi. Scubadivingjim (most people just call me Jim) here. Scuba diving is my window to the world. It has taken me on an amazing adventure and my life has not been the same.

I began my scuba journey on the island of St. Thomas in the U.S.V.I. in 1990. After I completed my open water and advanced open water certifications, I was hooked on diving. I went on to complete my instructor training and spent the next 15 years living in the Caribbean and working as a scuba instructor.

I am a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer. During my time working in the Caribbean, I lived and worked on the islands of St. Thomas and St. Maarten in The Netherland Antilles, certified over 750 individuals, conducted 100's of resort dives and completed over 6000 dives, including training dives, guiding dives and dives just for fun.

When I wasn't working as a scuba instructor (usually only after a hurricane), I worked in marine construction. These jobs ranged from building or repairing docks and marinas, dredging, pile driving and underwater surveying and salvage.

I manage my own scuba diving website. My wife (also a PADI Divemaster) and I are committed to finding the best scuba diving tips and information for our site. We have to have the best scuba diving information because we have the best visitors.

Thanks for visiting our website.
