Karalyn Ramon

Divemaster & EFR Instructor

Karalyn Ramon 

Karalyn is a PADI Divemaster and EFR Instructor.  She spent her summers in her backyard pool in a land-locked part of Central California, so her love for the ocean was a long-distance relationship until moving to Los Angeles in 1999.

Karalyn holds Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in Natural Sciences and has been conducting research, writing, teaching and training teachers for the last 15 years. Her teaching experience has stretched across the spectrum of science (Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Forensic Science, Robotics, and Engineering) in a variety of settings (university, high school, and middle school). Her three main areas of practice are BiologyForensic ScienceRobotics. Karalyn regularly publishes articles, videos, tutorials, trains teachers and presents at professional conferences.   After years of teaching about marine ecosystems, she finally experienced the beauty of California’s kelp forests first-hand while earning her PADI Open Water certification with Malibu Divers.

Having caught the bug (yes, she is also an accomplished lobster diver!) for diving, over the next year, Karalyn earned her PADI Advanced, Rescue and Divemaster and EFR Instructor certifications. She is a continuous inspiration to us as a busy working wife/mom of a family of divers and who often arrives with her amazing baked treats. Being a Divemaster allows her to combine her passion for diving with her training and talents as a scientist and teacher.
