I got here by a rather long and twisted path. I attended University and studied Marine Biology, and after University I started in retail. It makes sense in some ways I think. I had my own camera store and studio for almost 9 years and then bounced around a bit until I met Jen. We spent 5 years in the Cayman Islands, and yes we dove. Part of my time there was spent at Cathy Church's. Upon our return to Canada I finally became a Scuba Instructor, I have been diving since 1979, so it was about time.
So with over 35 years of diving I have had a chance to dive three oceans, lots of lakes and rivers in Canada, plus boring research dives for school. Add to this my experience as a photographer and I am more than ready to help you on your journey.
Jen may not have been diving for as many years as Steve has, but since she started in the Cayman Islands, she did have a chance to make up for lost time. An Interior Designer, and small business owner herself, she also became a Scuba Instructor when they returned to Canada after their 5 years in the Cayman Islands.
Jen's favourite is the teaching of all of the DAN courses, and helping anyone who is a little nervous about diving. She was unsure of herself when she started diving, and those memories are still fresh in her mind so she understands your apprehension.
So what does an Airstream have to do with a business? It is a longish story but the short version has to do with returning to Canada after some years abroad which made for some changes in attitude due to latitude. We returned with a desire for our lives to be more about experiences than stuff, and that attitude stuck and helped with how we do what we do now and the why.
Ultimately what this means is that by living in a much smaller spaces the usefulness and quality of items becomes much more important than having lots of stuff. With this in mind we only carry a limited line of products, those which we feel are of the highest quality so that they will last a long time and provide the service which you need.
