Instructor and Sales


Marina was raised in the waterfront town of Seldovia, Alaska, off the road system, only accessible by plane or boat.  As her name implies, Marina has always loved the water, from swimming to kayaking and sailing. She went to the Sail Caribbean program, to learn to scuba dive, and that changed everything!  On the trip, she discovered a new love, to be “Under the Sea” scuba diving, and secured her PADI Open Water and Advanced Open Water dive certifications. Marina loves working with Jack’s, and she’s enjoying the variety of work she gets to do, from scuba diving, to snorkeling with manta at night, working in the shop, helping guests, scheduling trips and certifying new divers!
Marina loves the sun, beach, sand, warm ocean and all the pretty fishes! When she’s not diving, she loves to cook, “snack” on great food, fish, travel, play volleyball, sit around a campfire, sew, hang out with great friends, and watch Disney movies with her cat “Cece” on her lap!
