We’re Expanding Scuba Training Opportunities!

Lahaina Divers is surging ahead in professional development for dive instructors, for those looking to enter professional diving as a career, or improve their underwater skills. We are excited to welcome Tim Bradley, a four-time Platinum Course Director, to further develop dive training as the Director of Training and Professional Development.

Lahaina Divers is a Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) Five Star Instructor Development Center here on Maui. To achieve this rating, the company provides afull range of PADI scuba diving education programs, equipment selection and dive boat charters while encouraging aquatic environmental responsibility. Tim will expand dive education and career-based programs for all levels of divers and dive pros, while sharing his passion for scuba diving. 

“I’ve been fascinated with the underwater world, especially sharks, since I was a kid,” shared Tim. “After learning to dive in the frigid water of Lake Michigan in Chicago, I’ve been fortunate to travel and teach all over the world, from Central America to Oceana and Asia.” 

Most recently Tim was Head of Instruction for a large PADI Career Development Center in the Philippines. He is an avid underwater photographer and videographer, can instruct over 20 specialties, and is a certified Underwater Criminal Investigator. Tim has been teaching for over 16 years, and has been recognized four times as a Platinum Course Director. According to PADI, this is the highest accolade awarded to only a few Course Directors worldwide each year, for their instructional achievements and commitment to professional-level educational excellence.  

“Working with Lahaina Divers gives me the opportunity to conduct Instructional Development Courses at the highest level, with one of the most respected operators in the world,” enthused Tim.

Please join us in welcoming Tim Bradley and family to Maui and the Lahaina Divers ohana.
