    More about "Gene Gene Diving Machine" Clingan:

    Born in the United States and raised in the Navy life. My father was stationed all over the world, I have lived in Guantanamo Bay Cuba as a young boy, learning to swim in the ocean.  As a teenager I lived on Treasure Island in California. Enjoying fishing and swimming in the ocean. Going to high school in Hawaii, learning to surf, before joining the United States Navy myself.

    My diving adventure started in the sandy shores of La Jolla beach in San Diego, California, where I earned my open water diver and advanced open water.  While serving in the United States Navy, I had the opportunity to dive all over the world.  A few of my favorite places include the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, Hawaii, Philippines and Thailand.

    After I retired from the Navy, I continued my diving education becoming a commercial hard hat diver. My desire for teaching has led me to becoming a PADI Master Instructor.  I enjoy teaching all PADI specialties and passing on my knowledge and skills I have learned over the years.  

    I have had the opportunity to teach in Orlando Florida, Albuquerque New Mexico, Virginia, Bahamas and now the Florida Keys. If you come down this way and want to start your diving adventure or continue your training stop by the shop and ask for Gene, Gene the Diving Machine!
