Women in Diving - Mindy

July 10, 2019


Mindy has been diving with us for four years, with her husband Toby and daughter Brenna (previous profile). While Mindy's diving journey started over 20 years ago, she says she was relieved her daughter fell in love with diving too! (read more below!) One of the great joys of what we do for a living is getting to spend time with families having fun together,  spending precious time enjoying each other before the busy-ness of life takes over as young people transition into young adults. Mindy's devotion to her family is paramount and its fun for us to see mom's and daughters bonding together over (well, under) our beautiful oceans. Its a privilege to play a small part in those moments, and we are honored that families like Mindy's choose to spend a little part of their special vacation time on our dive boat. Looking forward to many more years of family vacations on board!
