Hi my name is Steve Bowen known as Scuba Steve on the island. I was introduced to the tourism industry in early part of 1990. I became an instructor in 1993 and still active in teaching scuba diving both PADI, NAUI, and also DAN members. This puts me as one of the oldest Dive Instructor in the country of Belize.
As a Small family oriented Dive shop my wife Jackie runs the everyday operations.
Our son Eugene is also a licensed tour guide and dive master for the past 6 years, he does most of the snorkeling, fishing and tours to the other island.
Our dive shop is located right in the center of town on the beach next to the San Pedro Belize Express water taxi. Our dive shop is a small family oriented Dive Shop and gives a family touch atmosphere.
