Head Captain Doug Weaver

Captain Doug was born in East Tennessee and moved to the Florida Keys to follow his passion for the ocean. He is a PADI MSDT Instructor, and Sea Dweller’s Head Captain. Doug has a vast knowledge of mechanics and electrical, and his years of experience in andon the Key Largo reefs diving has given him the knowledge of almost every dive site, so far that he could draw you a picture of the site layouts off the top of his head.

In addition, Doug has experience as a trained Scuba Service Technician for both gear and air compressors, and even boasts a Tec Rec Trimix Blender certification.

Doug got into diving over 11 years ago with a mountain biking friend looking for another adventure to do. Since then he has received countless instructor level certifications and has worked in multiple roles in the dive industry.
