Come out to our next meeting. Even if you are not certified or if you are an experienced diver, this group is for you. Our speaker this month is going to be great. Our February 2019 program will feature Mike Rowe, a Dive and Marine Consultant with the British Virgin Islands (BVI) Tourist Board & Film Commission. Mike began his professional career in 1973, serving for 11 years as a navigating officer in the British Merchant Navy. In 1982, he relocated to Texas and later took a position with Diver Depot in Nacogdoches as Manager. He became a PADI Instructor in 1987 and a PADI Course Director in 1990, a position in which he remains. In 1999, Mike opened International Scuba in Carrollton and managed the facility for a few years before accepting a position as Director with Sail Caribbean in the BVI. Sail Caribbean, established in 1979, offers summer adventure programs for teens. Mike and his wife developed the scuba program within the company that was branded as Sail Caribbean Divers, a PADI 5 Star IDC Resort, and have co-directed the company for the past 20 years. During the last 8 years, he served on the Board of Directors for the BVI Tourist Board. Upon leaving the BVI in September 2018, he was offered the position of Dive/Marine consultant with the BVI Tourist Board, a position he holds today. He and his wife have recently relocated to Jackson, TN where they have just purchased a home. Please join us for an exciting program on diving opportunities in the BVI.
