Our speaker this month is Kevin Williams. Kevin Williams is the owner and manager of Hi Tide Scuba in Mansfield and is a SSI Instructor Trainer, PADI IDC Staff Instructor, Multiple Specialties Instructor, Emergency First Response Instructor, Public Safety Diver Instructor, and a Scuba Equipment Service Technician. Kevin began his professional diver training with High Tide Scuba in 2012 as a PADI Divemaster and has continued professional training during subsequent years. He has completed specialized training in equipment repair and maintenance with American Underwater Products (AUP – Oceanic, Aeris & Hollis), Sherwood Scuba, Atomic Aquatics, PADI’s TEC Gas Blender and PADI’s Equipment Specialist courses. Throughout the various and extensive specialty training that Kevin has received, he is very partial to PADI’s Distinctive Specialty Course – FULL Face Mask and also enjoys PADI’s Recreational Sidemount Diving as his two favorite training courses and recreational diving activities. Kevin is an avid outdoorsman especially those activities that are conducted on or near the water. He likes to hike, camp, ride mountain bikes, kayak, standup paddleboard, and of course scuba dive at every opportunity. Whenever possible, Kevin has his two Hungarian Vizsla’s accompany him on all of his outdoor activities, they are very special members’ of his family.
Kevin will share a little about his shop and discuss one of my favorite dive destinations… Central Florida. He will present information on Megalodon Tooth Diving in Venice, Florida and then Turtle, Shark and Goliath Grouper dedicated dives in Jupiter, Florida. He will also throw in some novelty sites, like the springs and caverns that are sprinkled around North Central Florida. These are nice as you can make a stop to stretch your legs and see a new dive site as you make your way to Venice and Jupiter.
Fins up! See you Thursday.
