Emile was a true islander, growing up on the sandy beaches of Puerto Plata as his dad’s assistant during the early years of SeaPro Divers. From a young age he had a passion for the sea, scuba diving and water sports. He studied in the United States (Miami, Florida) but soon returned to Dominican Republic realizing the laid back island lifestyle is the way to go. He has a Bachelors in Business Administration and MBA in Finance (which is absolutely useless for managing a dive business). He oversees the Punta Cana team as Executive Director. A professional beach Sankie, Emile has currently retired from the party scene and is happily married. During his time off, he enjoys doing absolutely nothing except for high intensity marathons that involve Netflix account. His most memorable dive experience was diving Great Barrier Reef in search for sharks.
Dominican American, although we secretly think she is really an international Russian spy. Mia is our Director of Marketing, responsible for Sales and Marketing initiatives and the company’s online efforts. She has named herself the SeaPro model and unfortunately customers will have to bear with photos of her all over our website, social media and promos. She recently returned to Punta Cana after spending 16 months working in Client services for the financial industry in London and pursuing an MBA in International business… even though it was more of an excuse to spend a year traveling.
After embarking on a cross Atlantic adventure from Europe to the Caribbean, Serbian Native Katarina ended up none other than in the Dominican Republic. Since her arrival she immediately fell in love with the scenery, people and the sea. Katarina is our Online Sales and Client Relations manager, responsible helping visitors plan incredible dive and aquatic adventures during their vacation. She is known for her exceptional customer service and speed email responses (we secretly think she has telepathic abilities since she often surprises customers by answering their questions before they even ask). When she is not working she is blowing bubbles underwater scuba diving and replanting corals in Bavaro Beach. We believe her secret life goal is to be a mermaid.
Coming from the land down under in Argentina, Ezequiel is responsible for logistics and operations. You will find ezequiel’s happy go lucky energy upon arrival at the welcome center, although he is often mistaken for another tourist. When he is not working he is off being a paparazzi with his drone or practicing his new passion for scuba diving.
Jennifer Vitaly is our Master Dive Instructor. Do not let her pretty blue eyes and petite size deceive you, she is a beast underwater. A native of Canada, Jennifer ran away from near arctic weather of her home town for a short vacation to the Dominican Republic, which ended up being the longest vacation recorded in history as she never left the island. She is currently ranked among the top women dive instructors in the world, having certified over 8.000 divers from all over. She has a unique ability to make anyone at ease underwater and makes diving seem like a piece of cake.
One of the oldest members of our team, Eugenio has been diving before dinosaurs were roaming the earth. He is one of our head instructors and dive enthusiasts. When he is not certifying or looking for sharks, he usually spends the other 16 hours of the day in the gym pumping iron.We are still trying to figure out when he sleeps. Probably the fittest member of our team, Eugene puts character and commitment into our operation, with over 3.000 certifications, you can breathe safely, you will be in good hands. Just make sure you don’t ask him his age.
Rudolfo aka “Petete” is our Senior Dive Master responsible for guiding our certified dive trips and ensuring all divers have a great experience while being safe underwater. As the biggest Diva of our team, if you do bring an underwater camera, chances are that you’ll have more photos of Petete than the dive itself. When he is not blowing bubbles, Petete is living his own Caribbean cowboy dream; herding goats in the Dominican countryside.
One of the newest members of our team, Kraig recently completed the PADI Divemaster Program with us. We liked his easy going personality so much that we made him part of our team, event after knowing he’s a Seminoles Fan (Go Gators!). Kraig is responsible for leading our local dive trips and ensuring that divers have a great experience while maintaining the highest standards in service.
