Meet the Crew
|Brian & Anjelique Kelsey
Our fearless leaders, Brian & Anjelique, moved to Key Largo
from San Antonio in March of 2019 with the distinct honor of taking the helm at Sea Dwellers Dive Center.
Brian is a PADI & SSI Instructor, and 100 GT Master Boat Captain and Anjelique is a PADI and SSI Instructor and Nurse Practitioner.
Brian's favorite dive site in the Keys is tied between Pickles and The Aquarium and Anjelique loves diving on the shallow wreck of the Benwood.
Brian and Anjelique have an adorable 3-year-old son, Zale (he's our resident cookie-snatcher...!). When they're not helping around the shop, they are definitely playing with this little guy!

Russell was born in San Antonio, Texas, but later moved to the Florida Keys to pursue his interest in ocean conservation! He spent 9 years in the U.S. Navy as a navigator attached to the U.S.S. Rushmore (LSD-47). He was a Plank Owner aboard the Rushmore as part of the commissioning crew. Then, Russell worked as a sailing charter captain for 17 years at Florida Sea Base, the Boy Scouts High Adventure camp located in Islamorada.
