Quote – “You know what really burns my bum?...”

Bob has been enjoying the island since he was born. As a child BK frequently visited the island to enjoy a day of sailing. He started diving in 1971 and became instantly hooked. After marrying his college sweetheart, Tina, he came to the island to make his way. In 1984 he and Tina started the Catalina Diving Resort out of one of the hotels on the island. Since that time the pair ditched the hotel industry and totally submerged themselves in SCUBA. Now Bob is happiest with a rebreather on his back and a camera in his hands.

Why Scuba Luv?

"I love being able to share my experience on the water and my passion for the ocean with our friends and guests. I also love the challenge of keeping everyone safe on a daily basis."
