|Captain Manuel Telles|
Hailing from Venezuela, Manny’s formal education earned him a degree in Engineering. However, he quickly realized that the “corporate world” was not for him. Instead, he started a career in diving and became a dive professional. Very quickly he realized that the sea was his real passion as he discovered a newfound love for sailing and diving. This passion allowed him to travel and work in numerous destinations around the Caribbean for several years. Ultimately it took him full circle when he returned to Venezuela with the intent of settling down and running a local dive center. However, the itch returned, and he ended up in the Cayman Islands onboard the Cayman Aggressor. V
He holds numerous certifications from PADI, SSI, and IANTD. He is also is an accomplished Freediver and won the Venezuelan IADA Freediving Championship in 2011 and went onto represent his country in the Freediving world cup that same year.
