One of the world’s first SCUBA instructors, Bill Finstad has certified tens-of-thousands of divers who have traveled around the world with a spirit of adventure and learning. Bill is a graduate of the University of California at Santa Barbara and holds a Master’s degree in Marine Biology. His thesis work focused on circadian rhythms in sharks. He has co produced several television documentaries on shark behavior and shark attacks. Bill has taught as a professor of marine biology, zoology, botany and California plants and animals at several colleges. With a Coast Guard Captain’s License for 100 Ton Vessels, Bill is an expert on the local diving sites-known to land his anchor on an exact pinnacle and dive directly to a wolf eel he met 30 years ago.
When you climb into the 20′ Caribe inflatable, you will receive a smack in the ass from Bill when your fins are pulled off. And don’t leave your dive gear dangling in the water on the side of the boat or Bill will drive off with it only to claim it at some later date! You may also learn boat exit techniques from an inflatable at 40mph.
