About Our Founder
Caitlin McCall is a passionate PADI Scuba Instructor, Scientific Diver, and Science Communications Specialist.
In my early twenties I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Advertising and Communication studies in my home state of Texas at Texas State University. I then did what every good 'ad girl' does and worked office jobs at a few different magazines. It didn't take long for me to feel completely disconnected. I wasn’t passionate about what I was doing and I didn’t know why. I had what we’ll call a mid-twenties 'crisis.' I’m sure some of you are rolling your eyes, but I had this strange feeling that I had to go find myself. I quit the office job, got my Divemaster certification and then moved to Australia alone. After a year there and then months living in New Zealand, I had fallen in love with the ocean. I went into it for healing my pain, to play with my friends, and to think. The ocean had become such a big piece of me. I arrived back in Texas to find that I missed my friend, the ocean. So I plotted to be reunited. I then moved to Key West, Florida, and found myself in a Marine Environmental Technology program at Florida Keys College. This program catapulted me into research diving, giving me hands on experience and further igniting my passion. Since then, I have gained my PADI Scuba Instructor certification and embarked on a journey to combine my skills in communications with my passion for teaching others about the ocean and how we can protect it. I look forward to the lifelong relationship I will have with the ocean, and I thank it for my happiness and passion I have today. So, what are we waiting for? Let’s go diving!
