  John Garroway is from St Vincent and the Grenadines and adopted Belize as his home in 1981. Now a true Belizean at heart John has worked on the reefs of Belize for over 25 years and the last 17 of those years have been on the Belize Aggressor III and Sun Dancer II.  What John loves about working on the Sun Dancer II is the diving (of course!) and meeting people from around the world.  John is one of those "salts of the sea" - the skuttlebut on board is that he smells the weather forecast and can navigate the yacht blindfolded knowing where he is at by the rocking and swaying.   John is living proof that there is very little taught in a classrooom that isn't more effectivley learned from first hand experience.
