Get To Know The Underwater Vision Staff
Here you will meet our entire team, from General Manager to PADI Course Directors and from Videographer to Instructor.
My family and I would love to welcome you to Utila and to our home! Underwater Vision and Hotel Trudy are the businesses we have been operating since 1991 but we have been taking visitors to explore the underwater realm for many years before that! I was born and raised on Utila and my family has lived here for many generations.
Grace, one of our multi award winning PADI Platinum Course Directors, has been a scuba diver since she was 9 years old. Her passion for being on or in the water is second to none and is as vibrant today as it was in her childhood. We are thrilled to have her as part of our PADI Career Development Center and most importantly the lead on our Instructor Development team.
Diego learned to dive 15 years ago while on vacation in Thailand. Breathing underwater blew his mind and immediately upon completion of his PADI Open Water Diver course, he signed up for the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course, his PADI Rescue Diver course and ultimately for a Career as a PADI Instructor. Long gone are the days when he worked tirelessly in his suit and tie as a commodities trader.
In addition to diving one of Anthony’s passions is underwater photography, if he’s not teaching he’s often fun diving trying to get yet another awesome sea life selfie. Anthony’s enthusiastic and fun personality is contagious making it impossible to not have a great time diving with him.
Traveling the world has always been my dream. During my travels I stumbled upon a true Caribbean paradise; Utila. This is where I discovered a whole new world through SCUBA. I completed PADI Open Water through Divemaster, ‘Zero to Hero”. I had worked as a divemaster for many years, and my passion for the marine world grew with every dive.
In 2021, Cynthia returned to Utila on her sailboat and fulfilled her dream of becoming an instructor. Teaching people how to dive is one of her passions, and she can do so in English and French. For Cynthia, home is where she drops anchor. Right now, that means home is Underwater Vision.
Marta was born and raised in Spain, in a very small town called Illescas. Teaching is one her passions, and as soon as she earned her degree in Educational Science, she decided to engage in her love of travel where she has learned and grown through opportunities teaching in Sweden, Ireland and Mexico just to name a few.
I’ve been working at Underwater Vision since 1994 – that’s over 25 years of dedicated service! The owner of Underwater Vision asked me if I wanted to be the dive boat captain as he watched me grow up working on cargo and fishing boats and I couldn’t say no!
