Rob is a passionate cave diver and explorer. If he's not teaching, he's either diving or hiking, rock climbing or seeking out new caves to dive in. He is the founder of Reef2Ridge and extremely passionate about creating the best divers possible, pushing standards of training higher to meet his personal standards and offer students the best diving education possible. His philosophy is to deliver as much information and techniques as possible, ramping the course up or down to tailor to the student's abilities and ensure that no matter the student's experience or ability, they are challenged and truly benefit from the course but never overwhelmed.
