|Dave Trent - Divemaster/Engineer|
I was born and raised in Boise, ID and joined the U.S. Marine Corps at 17 years and served from 1999 to 2003. I later studied biology at Boise State University. I found a carrier at a desk job and after 10 years decided that I needed a break. I soon made a trip to Utila in the Bay Islands of Honduras and took my open water course to try diving… after that, I was hooked. I became a Divemaster on New Year’s Day of 2016 and after a one-year commitment working for Mel Fisher’s Treasure Hunters in Key West Florida, I applied for a position with the Aggressor Fleet and was quickly accepted and have been happy every day to now be the acting engineer and Divemaster on the Bahamas Aggressor.

After traveling in Asia I did my instructor course and became a PADI IDC Staff Instructor and did my cross over to SSI. I then moved to the untouched British Virgin Islands where I got my day boat captain licence and loved to sail. Im chatty, positive and can't wait to take you under our seas to inspire and awe.
