Charles Ingram

Master Instructor

Charles began his diving career while in the US Marine Corps' Force Reconnaissance unit. Training as a Combat Diver was an incredibly rewarding experience but not exactly FUN!

However, once he experienced recreational diving in his California backyard, he knew it would remain part of his life. Because of the peace and enjoyment he finds diving with others, it only made sense for Charles to become an Instructor. Charles is a PADI Master Instructor capable of teaching over twenty (20) PADI Specialty courses. 

Because he is addicted to training and answering the questions that "stump" or "bewilder" him (quite a few), he is also constantly expanding his training in the areas of Technical and Public Safety Diving. He is also a Los Angeles County EMT and holds six (6) additional Technician & Responder certifications in the field of Search & Rescue. 

In addition to his travels in the Marines, Charles has enjoyed many adventures as a host for the TV shows "The Aquanauts", "Great White: Appetite For Destruction", and more. His favorite time on screen is when he's sharing his love of the underwater world. These experiences have taken him to exotic locations throughout Egypt, Australia, Palau, Indonesia and many more. Check out his hosting and acting career at his entertainment site.

His class creed: "Lets relax, absorb some good info, get in the water and have FUN!!!"
