Mike Green

I am an instructor with York Divers. I enjoy all types of diving including cold water dry suit and tropical warm water diving. I prefer wreck diving since wrecks are interesting to explore and have the added bonus of drawing many different types of sea life. I love to do night dives. I have dived in the waters of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, the Caribbean, the Gulf of St Lawrence and several inland waterways and plan to do a lot more dive travel around the world in coming years.
I am certified Handicapped Scuba Association Adaptive Dive Buddy.

My diving journey started the way that a lot of people get started, by the urging of a friend. I got my Scuba Diver certification in 2006 in Key West and then came back to PA to get my full Open Water certification through York Divers that same year. At the start, diving was hit or miss for me, until I went to Bonaire for vacation in 2010. That year is when my dive career truly started. That year I got seven certifications and in early 2011 started the Divemaster training and completed that training in 2012.

Ed Carter

Hello fellow divers and future divers! My name is Ed. I've been a Divemaster with York Divers since 2012. I'm a Trauma Nurse at Shock Trauma in Baltimore and in my free time I, as well as several other staff at York Divers, are Volunteer Divers at the National Aquarium in Baltimore, MD. Some of my favorite dive spots are the Bahamas where I dove with 30-40 reef sharks during a feed, North Carolina WWII wrecks with lots of sand tiger sharks, and Bonaire-some of the best reefs and shore diving in the world! If you can't tell, most divers like sharks!

Matt Umstead

I have been diving through York Divers since the summer of 2010 after obtaining my PADI Open Water certification. Throughout that summer I received my Advanced Open Water certification and began working at the store in the spring of 2011. While being enrolled as a full time student at Penn State University, studying Archaeological Science, I received my Rescue Diver certification and my Handicap Scuba Association Adaptive Dive Buddy certification. I went further in my education by taking the Intro to Technical Diving course then began work on my PADI Divemaster Certification.
