Mike Shea:

Mike Shea  Mike originally certified as a Military diver in 1992. With a little forethought and some luck, he realized that there is more to diving then just being a military diver. He would go on to become a Dive Master in 1996. Mike would hold the rating of Dive Master with both IDEA (International Divers Education Association) and PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors). In 2007, Mike would make the move from being a Dive Master to that of an Open Water SCUBA Instructor. The main reason for this step up is because Mike wanted to give back to the sport that opened so many doors and worlds for him. He wanted to help people achieve the ability to dive anywhere they have a desire to dive.

Today, Mike holds the PADI Master Instructor rating. This is the second highest rating in the PADI system behind Course Director. Now remember, Mike became a SCUBA Instructor here in Northwest Indiana and the Chicago area. So don’t let the location stop you from diving. Let the years of experience and knowledge help make your diving experiences fun and memorable.

Without a doubt, Mike enjoys working with people that want to dive. He likes to watch them overcome their apprehensions, fear and other notions to become certified divers.

With a little luck and some fun along the way you will discover the undersea world holds breath taking pleasures, fascinations and pure enjoyment. So come take the plunge with us, you will be glad you took the first step in your diving adventure with us.
