  Lynne has been diving since the 1970's. She went along with her husband's dream to go and open up a   dive shop on a small tropical island. She was very involved in getting that dive shop dream, "Dive Rota,"   up and successfully running. Although she has long since hung up her PADI Divemaster fins and U.S.   Coast Guard boat operator's license, she still helps with boating chores and marine activities when she   isn't busy with her real job, which is the librarian at the Sinapalo Elementary School.

  Mark and his wife Lynne founded Dive Rota in 1986. The ocean and diving have been part of Mark's life   since he was in High School.

  He is a former Navy diver and worked for years as a commercial diver in California and Asia before   coming to the island of Rota and opening Dive Rota. He lead years of underwater guided tours as a   NAUI Divemaster, but currently only dives for personal pleasure or an occassional commercial diving   job.

  Since the closing of the Dive Rota dive shop on February 28, 2006 he now runs Dive Rota as a private   boat charter operation. You can also find him him operating a dive boat for Blue Palms Dive Service or   out on his own fishing, diving or snorkeling.
