Hello, and welcome to Atkins SCUBA!

The heart of our team is Matthew Atkins and Kari Taylor Atkins.

Matthew Atkins is a PADI IDC Staff Instructor and Kari Taylor Atkins is a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer. Both are avid divers, extremely safety conscious, and committed to ensuring you get the best training there is. Matthew and Kari became certified divers in 2001 and worked their way up through the training until they ended up each doing a divemaster internship program at Blue Angel Dive Shop in Cozumel, Mexico. Matthew became a divemaster in the spring of 2004, and Kari followed in his footsteps in spring of 2005. The following winter they both went to Utila Dive Centre in Honduras to complete their Instructor Development Course, and in February 2006 they both became PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors.

Matthew and Kari pride themselves on being organized, highly skilled, and delivering on their promises. They look forward to a long and fun-filled relationship with all their scuba contacts!
