Past Staff Members

Over the past 29 years, we have been lucky to have these awesome divers help build the park that we all love and enjoy. From our very first staff member Les Simmons who was with us for 18 years to Dan Kirk who moved this past season and all those in between helped shape the park we know today. These great divers dedicated their time to help build a diving destination for divers of all skill sets. We’re thankful for their time with us. These past members will always be part of our scuba family.
