Scott Carnahan
Scott is one of the founding members of the Training Facility and the Local Speleo Survey Project. Along with daily operation of the facility; he is diving, guiding, and training divers to many levels of advanced diving. Originally from the United States; he has lived, worked and dove throughout the Great Lakes areas, Central and Southern United States, Eastern Caribbean, the Sea of Cortez, Pacific and Eastern Mexico. He actively dives (and of course is certified in) Trimix Diving, Cave Diving, Wreck, as well as Rebreather Diving. Scott has been training divers for the last nine years and has certified hundreds of divers to various levels of training from open water to full cave. Some of the favorite locations that he currently guides and teaches in include: the deep walls and caves of Cozumel, the cenotes of the Riviera Maya, and the Deep Caves of Yucatan. Courses can be taught in English and Spanish with a joke here and there in Mayan. He is jointly responsible for the blending of Nitrox and Trimix, here in the store, for our students and divers to use and gases used by other local exploration projects. If you hate this website you can also hold Scott partially to blame.
