Chris Brock

After a decade of teaching and coaching in public schools, on a whim Chris signed up for a discover scuba experience while on vacation in Mexico. While hanging at the bottom of the line on that initial dive, Chris knew that scuba was something he wanted to share with others. Foregoing the rest of his vacation, Chris began his open water training the next day and the rest is history.

Over the years Chris was lucky enough to connect with several great mentors that shared with him the art and science of technical and cave diving. The precision and beauty of this type of diving further fueled his passion for teaching and with time and practice Chris now teaches as both cave and open water diving on a regular basis. Over the course of a decade of diving Chris has trained several hundred divers and has been fortunate enough to dive and teach in many fascinating places.
