Instructor Rob Mohler
I was certified as an Open Water Diver in 1999, when a friend encouraged me to learn to dive so that I could be his dive buddy. When I first began, I was a very poor swimmer, but I am glad that I persevered. I became an instructor in 2005, and a Master Scuba Diver Trainer in 2007.
My favorite class to teach is Digital Underwater Photography. I especially enjoy showing others the beauty of the underwater world. By teaching them to take better pictures, I am helping them to convey the beauty and value of the underwater environment.
When it comes to great places to dive, one of my favorites is Bonaire. The beauty and variety of dive sites here is truly amazing. I also enjoy Papua New Guinea, where the underwater world is truly untouched by the masses. Few tourists have ever ventured below the surface. During my time in the Galapagos Islands, I saw tons of hammerhead sharks and beautiful marine life. This is also a premier venue for Whale Sharks.
The primary reason I spend so much time teaching diving is so that I can help my students to develop a true fascination with the underwater world. I am excited when I see students deepen their appreciation of the value and diversity of the marine ecosystem. I am especially interested in coral reef ecology and PADI Project AWARE. Once a month I volunteer as a diver at the National Aquarium in Baltimore.
