Michel is our very own Jacques Cousteau and our resident PADI Course Director – the highest level possible within PADI recreational diving. He loves scuba diving, still gets a kick out of certifying divers at any level and still gets up eager to get to the shop. He likes to make jokes but he’s not very good at it, well, sometimes he is! Don’t tell him we told you.
