PADI Assistant Instructors, Contracted Assistant Instructors

Eladio Muniz

Certification: PADI Assistant Instructor, Discover Scuba Leader, Contracted Assistant Instructor

I grew up in New Jersey and lived in several other states as a result of company relocations.  Ultimately settled in New Mexico in January 2000 where I now own an insurance agency. My interest in diving began when my oldest son enlisted in the Navy and is currently an EOD Navy diver. I committed to becoming certified which I did in 2017 and he and I had a great diving trip to the Florida Keys in early 2018.  My interest in diving has continued as I received my certification as a Rescue Diver, Handicapped Scuba Association Divemaster, and Dive Master.
