About Bob Newman, owner and founder

How I was introduced to the professional diving industry:
I was very fortunate to have met a Dive Instructor named John Norris of Aqua Specialists in Lakewood Ohio on a discover scuba trip to Stuart Coves in Nassau Bahamas. John passed away this year but not before becoming a Scuba Icon here in Ohio. John let me help him with classes and eventually certified me as a PADI Divemaster.

What I like best about my job:
I really enjoy traveling with other divers and sharing stories about all of our’s and their dive adventures.

Words of wisdom for those starting their career in the diving industry:
If you ever dreamed about diving or traveling the world, do not put it off for another day. Jump in and Get Wet, Take the Plunge as they say. There is nothing better than traveling and going diving and getting paid for it!

Best way to keep a competitive edge:
Keep up with all the advancements in equipment and technology. Listen to other people about their adventures and you can learn a lot about the World of Diving.

Biggest change I have seen in the professional diving industry since I started:
There has been a great deal of change including employment opportunities, new technology and new dive locations opening up to explore.
