If you’re looking for an experienced scuba professional that knows first-hand the one-of-a-kind feeling of breathing underwater, it doesn’t get any better than our team of Instructors here at Rec & Tek SCUBA Inc. As the sole proprietor of Rec & Tek SCUBA Inc., Mitch Wilson has been a certified NAUI Open Water SCUBA Diver since 1995. Mitch first became a professional in diving when he became a PADI Divemaster in 1998, now certified and insured as an ACUC Advanced SCUBA Instructor, a TDI Technical Diving International Instructor and an SDI Open Water SCUBA Instructor. Mitch enjoys instructing both novice and experienced divers alike.

Mitch has dedicated a great deal of time to the development and submission of a Low Impact Diving course to several certification agencies. This specialty course has been approved and adopted by SDI, ACUC and PADI, and was designed to encourage and train divers to be more conscious while diving on wrecks around the world.

Also certified in Technical Nitrox, Decompression Techniques and Technical Wreck Penetration with NAUI, Mitch is always in search of improvement as he logs both several pleasure and training dives each year.
