About Carl Santangelo
Carl hails from South Florida where he earned his PADI Junior Open Water Diver certification at the ripe young age of 12. After graduating from The University of Miami he quickly realized that his love for the sea and its contents could lead to a full time career as a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor.
Upon completing the Instructor Development Course, Carl has gone on to dive and teach SCUBA in the Bay Islands of Honduras, Puerto Rico, the U.S Virgin Islands, Australia, and the island of Oahu where he currently resides. When he’s not breathing underwater Carl enjoys sailing, spelunking, playing guitar, long walks on the beach, virgin Piña Coladas, and making furniture.
