Eddie

Deckhand

Hello everyone my name is Eddie, born and raised in Coconut grove Miami Fl but Always enjoyed spending my time in the keys. My first ever snorkel experience out in the ocean was with silent world dive center the summer of 2020. I’ll never forget the feeling of jumping in for the first time and having so many fish and such beautiful reef structures so close to me. After that I was hooked and knew I wanted to take it to the next level. A weekend later I became open water certified and it was absolutely the best decision I’ve ever made. After a few fun dives I knew I wanted to be around this as much as I can and gain as much knowledge as possible, thankfully silent world took me under their wing and I’m up to my rescue diver certification now and keeping it going.
