Tony has been diving for thirty-five years. He specializes in Technical / Rebreather and Public Safety Diver Training.
Originally from Puerto Rico, he grew up swimming in the ocean and lagoons around Guaynabo. He was a member of the Puerto Rico Olympic Swim Team. Unfortunately he never got to to the the Olympics, because that was the year that the United Stateds boycotted the Olympics in Moscow. He left Puerto Rico in 1982 on a full swimming scholarship to the University of Michigan.
After retiring from the military, his entrepreneurial spirit took him to several different ventures until the call of the ocean brought him back to Puerto Rico. He has not looked back since and is always moving forward to new levels, deeper depths and longer bottom times. He enjoys teaching "those who want to learn."
