Assistant Instructor in training.
I had my first underwater encounter in Jamaica 11 years ago and I returned to the states with the diving bug. A couple years later we went to the Dominican Republic did another dive and when we return I found York Divers and what a find it was. I completed my open water certification went to Costa Rica and got to see my first shark.
Sense then I have advanced my skills and certifications with the help of York divers. I had the opportunity to join York divers as a member of the staff and didn’t have to think twice.

I became a PADI open water diver in 2012 when diving suddenly appeared on my bucket list. Snorkeling has been great for many years, but diving is more 3-dimensional! I earned my Divemaster certification in 2018 and enjoy working with new-to-diving students, particularly with those who aren’t comfortable doing certain skills. It is gratifying to see them earn their certifications and continue with diving. Favorite dive spots include New Zealand, the Socorro Islands, and Bonaire. Favorite things to see are giant manta rays, sharks, and eels.

Shayne Smith

My first exposure to diving was on a resort certification on my honeymoon and then again on my first wedding anniversary. The diving bug bit me and I vowed not to return again to tropical vacations without a full diving certification so that I could be fully prepared and safe underwater. Enter children in my life and the certification would have to wait for…ohhh…20 years or so. I more formally entered diving again in 2015 and became a PADI Professional in 2017. My favorite things to do underwater: watching sharks, wreck diving, underwater nav, and sharing with students.
