He got hooked on scuba diving while in college and received his PADI Open Water Instructor (OWSI) certification at the same time as getting his degree. After graduating from college he decided to work as a scuba instructor and took a job offer to work here on Kauai. When not diving professionally, Derek enjoys diving for fun looking for sharks and enjoying Kauai’s many hiking trails.
