Padi Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) If you like people, have a passion for scuba diving and want an extraordinary life - become a PADI Instructor. Teaching scuba diving allows you to share your love of the aquatic world with others while doing what you enjoy - being in, around and under water. PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors are the most sought-after dive professionals around the world because they've completed the program that sets the standard for training dive professionals.
Kelsie is an avid diver, outdoor enthusiast, and open water scuba instructor who is well acquainted with the cold waters of Atlantic Canada. Originally from Nova Scotia, Kelsie spent ten years away where she learned to dive in Newfoundland and was spoiled with the pristine visibility, whales, icebergs, and WWII shipwrecks. Newfoundland became home base while she spent her time working in ocean sciences, travelling, and of course diving in as many locations as possible!
While the sharks of Costa Rica and cenotes of Mexico are nice and warm, cold water diving provides an abundance of opportunity. From the arctic circle in Norway, the continental divide in Iceland, to both East and West Canadian coasts, the cold water realm is where you will most often find her exploring.
Kelsie is passionate about environmental conservation, enjoys introducing people to the local dive sites, and sees every course taught as a new group of dive buddies to adventure with. When she is not at the shop, you are likely to find her in the water on our weekly club dives helping newly certified divers become more comfortable in the water.
