Carly

Shop Manager / PADI Instructor

Cozumel is my paradise, although originally from Canada you won’t catch me in the snow! I spend the
majority of my time taking your reservations, and helping plan a perfect dive trip but you can also find me
on the dive boats teaching and guiding a few times a week. When I’m not at the shop, I’m hangin’ with my
4 rescue dogs on the beach or cooking up a storm.

JP

Owner / PADI Instructor

Since a youngster the ocean has fascinated me and through Costeau’s documentaries I got as close as I could. I said to myself I wanted to become a Scuba Diver when I grew up. Now, I’m living the Scuba Life and love sharing my passion with you.

Aldo (Tio)

PADI Instructor / Divemaster

Hola Amigos, I’m Aldo from Guadalajara, Jalisco, the land of mariachi and tequila. My friends call me El
Tío (Uncle) because I’m one of the oldest in the crew and also for my Dad jokes! Ive been diving for 15
years, and looking forward to doing it for the rest of my life. Im looking forward to taking you for an
underwater adventure here on our beautiful Island of Cozumel, which I am proud to call home!

Marcelo

Captain

Born and raised in Cozumel, it was only natural that I join the wonderful
dive industry Cozumel has to offer. I have over 20 years experience Captaining boats here on the island,
but I finally found home with Scuba Life 8 years ago, on the Kailani boat. I am now proud to drive the
newest boat in our fleet, the Leilani – the Mercedez Benz of the ocean. Looking forward to seeing many
familiar faces, as well as the new ones on board. Happy Diving.

Jaime

Captain

Boat Captain
Growing up here in Cozumel, being surrounded by the ocean, it was clear for me that my destiny was to
work in the ocean! With 20 years of experience both under and above the water, I was most definitely
born in the right place! I have been a Capitan for the past 10 years, and look forward to many more ahead
of me. I also love to scuba dive, go fishing and spend time with my friends and family on the beach

Diego

PADI Instructor / Divemaster

I’ve been living here on the coast of Mexico for the past 15 years, and can’t go a day without jumping in
the ocean. I look forward to sharing my passion with you, here in Cozumel underwater. My favorite dive
site is Colombia, but I also love Cedral for filming amazing interactions with turtles and sharks.

Carlos aka “Cheche”

PADI Instructor

Hi, my name is Carlos but everybody calls my Cheche. I look forward to teaching you how to dive or helping more experienced divers perfect their skills. Every moment spent underwater is a good one!

Giovanny

Scuba Tanks Logistics

If there is a space on the dive boat, count on me going to get more experience as a diver! Its my pleasure
to meet you and help you on the pier. On my days off, you can find me n the ocean – fishing with friends,
or exploring the island with my wife and son Edrick.

Javier

Scuba Gear and Logistics

I look forward to meeting you on your dive trip – I have been working with Scuba Life for over 4 years, and
when not at the marina, I spend my time with my family. I have two young boys who love going to the
beach with me and their Mom. One day they’ll be divers too!

Sergio (Chatis)

Logistics & Operations / Advanced Open Water Diver

Originally I am from Mexico City, but I have found my paradise here in Cozumel away from the tall
building and people rushing around! My profession, I am an engineer. When I’m not diving, I love going to Puerto Abrigo to practice my freediving skills- Let me know if you want to come!

Jaime (Jimmy)

PADI Divemaster & Guide

For more than a decade I have lived near the sea while learning to love and respect it. I am originally from
Toluca, near Mexico City. Come find the freedom I did and blow some bubbles with me, you’re
guaranteed to enjoy everything that our pristine waters have to offer. It’s going to be the best part of your
vacation- I promise! I am Jaime, but on board you can call me Jimmy. See you on the boat.

Jorge

PADI Instructor / Divemaster

Hola Divers, I’m Jorge – Originally from the hustle and bustle of Mexico City. I’m enjoying my 19th year in
Cozumel, with a much more relaxed vibe. Can’t wait to dive with you and make your time here on our
island, the best ever! See you underwater.

Yessica

PADI Instructor / Divemaster

The only thing I love more than arepas – Is diving! I’m Yessi, from Colombia and can’t wait to introduce you
to the underwater magic we have here in Cozumel, I’m sure you’re going to fall in love with it – Just like I
did. Looking forward to sharing your vacation with you, see you on board!

David (Noodles)

PADI Instructor / Divemaster

It’s been 8 years that I’ve been diving here in Cozumel, and with each dive I fall in love again. When I’m
not working, I am in the water with my wife and daughter – we love going to the other side of the island to
enjoy the pristine beaches, and I personally love to spear fish (dinner!). Friday nights I like to play soccer
with my colleagues, we have a Scuba Life Team, come cheer us on.. But I promise, we are better divers
than soccer players!

Fernando

PADI Instructor / Divemaster

Hola Amigos, Im Fernando- born in Manzanillo, Mexico. Ive been working in diving for the past 16 years, mainly in Puerto Vallarta, but I love the diving here in Cozumel as its much warmer! The atmosphere on the island is incredible, both above and below the surface. When I’m not diving, you’ll find me on my bike exploring the island the scenic way- or strumming my guitar. I have two beautiful daughters that I can’t wait to start diving with as soon as they’re old enough! See you onboard.

Oscar

Captain

They call me Mono, but my name is Oscar. Welcome on board the Vicky boat! I am originally from Yucatán, but Cozumel is my forever home. I love this island, and I am so blessed to work every day at sea. Looking forward to getting to know you during your visit with us, you’re going to wish you lived here too!

Welcome! This is our dedicated professional team.
