Your Dive Charter Captain
Andy Ross was raised in a military family and was fortunate enough to have lived in some pretty amazing places like the Philippines, Guam, and Hawaii. Captain Andy earned his first dive certification in Guam, and has since found his way under the waters of Honduras, Belize, Palau, Mexico, and of course the Pensacola Gulf Coast. Captain Andy's appreciation for the underwater world eventually led him to become a divemaster, where he began learning the ins and outs of the scuba charter industry. Now a licensed captain and technical diver with thousands of dives under his belt, Captain Andy has built a reputation as an experienced guide with a total commitment to the safety and comfort of his passengers.
