Personal Passions: Got a open water certified in 2014 thinking that's as far as I would take it. Quickly fell in love with the serenity of underwater life and decided to advance my skills by taking the master diver course and moved right in to becoming a dive master.

Candy Watson

Candy WatsonDiving Credentials: PADI Divemaster

Real Job": Postal Manager Retired!!

Personal Passions: I began SCUBA diving 12 years ago in Southern California after waiting many years for my 3 children to grow up, and have been making up for lost time ever since. While none of my family wants to dive I have a great dive family through ScubaCenter Temecula and Temecula Valley Dive Club. We dive a lot and travel together to terrific dive sites in the Caribbean, Florida, and recently Palau.

I became a PADI Divemaster in 2008. I have enjoyed working with classes… is really a joy to see students light up when they discover how wonderful it is to be in the underwater world. I love working with our SEAL Team Kid’s Classes 8-12 year olds, they are a blast. I also have fun getting divers who haven’t been in the water for a time reaquainted with their skills through our PADI SCUBA Review classes.

Non-Diving Activities: Family time; travel, snowboarding, golf

Favorite Food: Steak and chocolate!

Favorite Dive Locations: Palau and Cozumel.

Dive Bucket List: Oh so many, but definitely more of the South Pacific.

Stacey Woodman

Stacey WoodmanDiving Credentials: PADI Divemaster/ PADI Master diver

Real Job": Service Consultant at Chevrolet

Personal Passions: I first tried taking my open water class in the mid 90's but never followed through, but I finally I took my open water class in November of 2012. I took a few months off until I took the advanced class in march of 2013. I lived in the water the rest of 2013 to get my master diver and divemaster certifications. It was a lot of fun!! I'm looking forward to helping out new students that get the same feeling I had when I finished my open water, and hope they get the bug too. I would say diving and golf are my biggest passions besides my two kids and amazing wife.

Non-Diving Activities: Riding my dirt bike, golfing, hanging out with my family

Favorite Food: sushi, pizza ,sandwichs and anything i can put on the grill

Favorite Dive Locations:California Diving is all I have done so far but Catalina would be my fav spot so far.

Dive Bucket List: South Pacific, Antartica, Alaska, Austrilla
