Whether it’s your first taste of scuba or the trip of a lifetime, at Got Air Scuba nothing is more important than your experience. Bringing you the magic of the undersea world depends on people who share a passion and dedication to their divers’ safety, convenience, and adventure that many will claim but few can demonstrate. Got Air Scuba starts with expertise - Our divers deserve the most qualified instructors and staff in and out of the water. Whether you are looking for training, gear, dive travel, or just great dive buddies, Team Got Air is ready!
Mike has been diving for 6 years. He immediately fell in love with the Sport. He's gone from an Open Water Diver, to a Master Scuba Diver, to DiveMaster in no time at all! Mike is currently working towards his Assistant Instructor Certification and volunteers at the Shedd Aquarium every month. Mike has traveled all over the Caribbean, and would love to share his dive stories with you!
Mark was certified Summer of 2008 right here in Chicago. Mark instantly fell in love with Scuba Diving, and was instantly committed to going Pro as a PADI DiveMaster. He has many dives in the training quarry, as well as Turks and Caicos, CostaRica, and the Bahamas. Mark has been diving with Got Air Scuba since the very beginning.
Allison became a PADI DiveMaster two years ago and it's hard to get her out of the water. When she's not managing the shop, she's Diving Lake Michigan, Haigh Quarry, or volunteering her time at the Shedd Aquarium. Allison is a Marine Biologist, too! Her love for animals is evident in every conversation you'll have with her!
